Roseanne Barr said her namesake character will be killed off during the upcoming spinoff "The Conners" in the wake of the controversy surrounding Barr's derogatory tweets.

"Oh ya, they killed her", Barr said. She herself was struggling with her own real-life knee injury.

The actress said that she's come to terms with the show moving on without her. "It's done. It's over".

Former "Roseanne" star, Roseanne Barr, revealed what happens to her character in the new spinoff, "The Conners".

Barr, 65, admitted she has accepted her fate and the fact that the show is moving on without her.

The comedian was sacked and the reboot was cancelled after she posted a racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

China to cancel talks if Trump moves ahead with tariffs, sources say
The taxes will take effect from 24 September, starting at 10 percent and increasing to 25 percent from the start of next year. President Donald Trump said he would announce his latest plan on Chinese commerce after markets closed.

While it's obviously disappointing to have something this big spoiled ahead of the premiere, we should also keep in mind to take this news with a grain of salt.

"It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me", Barr said.

Jarrett, who could not have been blamed for reading Barr for filth after what she did, took the high road when asked about the offensive tweets during a subsequent appearance on an MSNBC town hall.

She told The Dr. Oz Show: "I want to be able to learn Hebrew, speak Hebrew fluently, because, you know, I read very slow but I know the letters and I love the letters, but, I want to speak it".

Barr said she's not happy with the way she'll be written out of the show. She has apologised several times for what she called a "joke", but the angry outcry over her tweet led to her being fired and then killed off in the spin-off series. "I think a lot of people have too". It is scheduled to premiere for its 10-episode first season on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. ABC reponded promptly; firing the comedian and cancelling her series, Roseanne.
