Roseanne Barr spoke out about The Conners on Tuesday after the spin-off of her cancelled Roseanne reboot premiered without the franchise’s former star.
In the premiere, the Conner family addressed Barr’s absence in the opening scene. As the family gathered in the kitchen mourning the loss of “Granny Rose” three weeks after her death, a concerned Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) asked to speak to Dan (John Goodman) alone outside.
While the family initially thought she suffered a heart attack in her sleep, they find out Roseanne died of an opiate overdose.
During the episode’s airing, Barr, who won’t appear in the spin-off, addressed her character’s death.
“I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!” she tweeted.
