Roseanne Barr blames TV daughter, Sara Gilbert for show's cancellation



It was Sara Gilbert’s fault.

That’s what Roseanne Barr told The Washington Post about ABC’s cancellation of her “Roseanne” reboot.

Barr caused an uproar in May 2018 when she posted what many considered a racist tweet about Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. Reaction was swift, with the network dropping its highest-rated show within hours.

But in a wide-ranging story published Thursday, Barr told The Post she blames Gilbert, who played daughter Darlene Conner on the show.

Hours after Barr’s early-morning post, Gilbert tweeted that Barrโ€™s comments were โ€œabhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.โ€

โ€œShe destroyed the show and my life with that tweet,โ€ Barr said. โ€œShe will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.โ€

    Did Ambien make you vote for that imbecile Trump?

    They're just running this story to boost the poor ass ratings The Conners have since Roseanne left.

    That's why the show is garbage now. Show these these liberal snow flakes for their hypocrisy

    She is not a racist and she should not have been fired! And as far as "the Conners" getting renewed, well, that's a complete mystery since the ratings were so bad. The network probably just renewed it anyway to save face.

    Definitely Sarah's tweet that day stabbed Roseanne in the back! How low can you go Sarah? You owe your ENTIRE CAREER to Rosanne.. one of the best comedian in modern times. Love you Roseanne!!!! ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Soooo… one of the side effects of Ambien is racism.

    Check.

    Yeah, that Sara Gilbert dude.. let's just say, he's a real hard ass.

    Blame the consequences of your actions, on some other person, having an opinion about your actions.

    Bulldog Dyke Gilbert

    Ambien and alcohol addiction will make you do some seriously stupid things but you dont get to blame the friend that called you out for the consequences of your special brand of stupid. If you have a big mouth and are unable to meter it then suffer the consequences.

    โ€œAnd so much moreโ€, what a good, supportive friend. And this is what you latch on to. Roseanne has been talking about important topics but corporate media only focuses on a personal dispute. Lame, sad…petty. Overrated. lol low views ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I am so glad Roseannes career is dead.

  14. Darla Sams March 25, 2019 at 10:26 am

    stop printing what Roseanne says until she gets help.

  15. Kirk Radeck March 25, 2019 at 10:26 am

    I guess Roseanne is blaming Gilbert now for Barrโ€™s firing. If Roseanne keeps it up and finds maybe another 100 excuses, sheโ€™ll match Hillary for the number of reasons Hillary gives for losing the 2016 election.

    We all agree with Roseanne. Sara could have called her and said hey whats going on.Instead she immediately judges her on public social media.Goes out of her way. Why?

    political correctness Is destroying this nation

  18. Dennis Smock March 25, 2019 at 10:26 am

    One of the traits of a loser is not taking responsibility for their own actions and blaming everyone and everything for their bad choices. You screwed yourself Roseanne, nobody but you.

  19. gregory pratt March 25, 2019 at 10:26 am

    Oh Socialist Trump Haters go to hell! Roseanne Barr has always been a racist pig and cannot keep her raunchy mouth shut. Always!

  20. Othello March 25, 2019 at 10:26 am

    Damn that Ambien! It's still making Roseanne say crazy things. ๐Ÿ˜‚
