Roseanne Barr revealed how her character will get killed off on the upcoming spinoff of "Roseanne" after she was sacked from the ABC series in May for writing a racist tweet. "Oh ya, they killed her", said Barr.

Barr went on to say it wasn't enough for producers to fire her, they also had to insult fans who loved the family and the show. "When I saw her on TV and she was doing her DNA test, and she's also 46 percent European". "It's done. It's over".

The original revival of Roseanne featured her character's struggle as she dealt with chronic knee pain, so the demise isn't a surprising one for her character.

Barr herself is joining the group, saying in recent interviews that she is choosing to stay away from The Conners.

"I want to stay away from it", the actress remarked.

Roseanne lost her show on ABC following her racially charged tweets regarding the Barack Obama aide, Valerie Jarett. Still, Barr had been upsetting left-wing Hollywood for months before the Jarratt tweet with her support of President Donald Trump and her increasing turn toward center-right political ideas. Later on, Roseanne gave up her rights to the show, and the network proceeded with a spin-off which she can't benefit from financially or creatively.

On getting fired from the show: "It physically defeated me, and I was just leveled".

"We are not gonna have you come on this show and have you defend yourself and have you plea for the American people to forgive you..."

Barr said she's not happy with the way she'll be written out of the show. "Don't think I don't have spies". It is scheduled to premiere for its 10-episode first season on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
