From Daily Caller:

Roseanne Barr has confirmed that the spinoff show “The Conners” will kill off her character, sharing that she dies “of an opioid overdose.”

The “Roseanne” star was fired from her popular ABC show and it was taken off the air over a racist tweet she made about former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

“Oh ya, they killed her. They have her die of an opioid overdose,” the 65-year-old comedian shared during an interview with Brandon Straka on his show “Walk Away,” according to Fox News Monday.


This proves how out of touch Hollywood truly is. Apparently, they didn’t get the message about the opioid epidemic in America at the moment.

The Senate passed a bipartisan legislation package that would take a multi-pronged approach to combating the opioid epidemic Monday.

The package will need to be reconciled with similar legislation passed by the House of Representatives in June, and legislation sponsor Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander said he hopes the president will sign the measure into law in early October, reported NBC.

“This bill represents Congress at its best,” Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch said before the Senate vote Monday. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House.”


The legislation has multiple provisions, including the Synthetics Trafficking and Overdose Prevention (STOP) Act that would penalize the U.S. Postal Service for failing to properly collect information about foreign packages coming into the U.S. STOP is designed to stop the influx of fentanyl-laced drugs coming in the mail from countries like China.


Approximately 72,000 Americans died of drug overdoses — the highest number ever, and not limited to opioid overdoses — in 2017, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention preliminary estimates.

The record number, which represents an increase of almost 7 percent from 2016, can be traced back to the growing amount of drugs that are laced with dangerous substances like the synthetic opioid fentanyl, reported The New York Times’ blog The Upshot.

On Roseanne’s Jarrett flap, per Fox News:

Roseanne Barr once again attempted to tell her side of the story about her controversial Valerie Jarret tweet, maintaining that she thought Jarrett “was white” and claimed her namesake show was canceled because she “voted for Donald Trump.”

Barr’s explanation came in the form of a video on her YouTube page, introducing viewers to her “own studio” where she said she can talk to the public “without the filter of the biased media.”

She recalled getting a phone call from ABC, in which she said she was asked “to explain my ‘egregious and unforgivable tweet,’” referring to her racially charged May post in which she said Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, was like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

Hollywood messed up bigly by killing off Roseanne Connor this way.
