Roseanne Barr may have been killed off for the reboot of the reboot of her show, but she wants fans to know that she personally isn’t dead. The Roseanne-less Roseanne, also known as The Conners, debuted Tuesday night with the series’ former title character dying from an opioid overdose in the first five minutes of the premiere. Barr was fired from the show in May after tweeting a nasty message towards a former Obama aide, which she later blamed on sleep drug Ambien. Taking to Twitter after the episode, Barr wrote, “I AIN’T DEAD B*****S,” followed by a message from her spiritual teacher Rabbi Shmuley attacking ABC for adding “an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.”
I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!
