Roseanne Barr’s friends are worried about her well-being, and it sounds like a lot of the problems are thanks to the way in which ABC has decided to kill off her character for The Conners spinoff. This is what a source said, according to the Hollywood Life.
“[Roseanne] is hurt and angry beyond belief over being axed from her show. It was painful enough that ABC is doing a spin-off without her, but then to find out they’re killing off her character by way of drug overdose was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
It’s unclear why the producers decided to choose a drug overdose. While Roseanne appears to have taken it personally, it’s hard to forget that it’s a touchy topic after Mac Miller’s recent death due to suspected overdose. Barr reportedly noted that “It’s so cynical and horrible — she should have died as a hero,” according to the Inquisitr.
