Roseanne Barr reacts ‘heavily’ to The Conners
Her reaction came Tuesday after a derivation of her cancelled Roseanne reboot premiered without the franchise’s former star.
In the premiere, the Conner family addressed Barr’s absence in the opening scene.

While the family initially thought she suffered a heart attack in her sleep, they find out Roseanne died of an opiate overdose.
“ I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!! ” she tweeted.
I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!
