Turns out Roseanne Barr is still salty about her character’s death on ‘The Conners.’ After being asked about it by the paparazzi in a grocery store parking lot, she angrily dropped some f-bombs!
Roseanne Barr, 65, and her longtime boyfriend, Johnny Argent, were exiting a Trader Joe’s location in Los Angeles on Sept. 20, according to Daily Mail, when they were confronted by the paparazzi. One man with a video camera asked for a comment about her character’s reported death by opioid overdose on The Conners, but she didn’t respond. Nevertheless, the paparazzi persisted and followed the couple to their car. An agitated Johnny started arguing with the photographer – click here to see the video of the encounter – which prompted Roseanne to pull out her iPhone.
“Are you gonna vote Democrat?” she asked. When the man said he was a Donald Trump supporter, she said, “Why didn’t you say that? You may have gotten an interview.” Yet, the damage was already done. As Johnny and the photographer resumed their argument, Roseanne said the paparazzi “attacked my husband,” which angered the photographer. Roseanne responded in kind. “I know you’re lying about being a Trump supporter, you’re a f*cking Hillary [Clinton] supporter, don’t lie.” The Daily Mail video ends there.
Ever since Roseanne was cancelled – as part of the fallout over her racist comments regarding Barack Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarrett – and a Roseanne-less spin-off, The Conners, was announced, people have speculated what will happen to Roseanne’s fictional self. While appearing on Brandon Straka’s YouTube channel, she said that Roseanne died from opioid overdose, since the character’s drug addiction was introduced in the Roseanne reboot. “It’s so cynical and horrible. She should have died as a hero or not at all. It wasn’t enough to [fire me], they had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show.”
Roseanne didn’t do herself any favors when a video of her violently screaming the word “f*ck” was posted online. In the July 19 clip, she said that in regards to the African-American Valerie Jarrett, Roseanne “thought the b*tch was white, goddamnit.” A week later, while appearing on Sean Hannity’s show, she deeply apologized for the “misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. I’m sorry you feel harm and hurt and I never meant that. I apologize. I never meant to hurt anybody.”
