Roseanne Barr Says Her 'Roseanne' Character Will Be Killed by Opioid Overdose


"It's done. It's over", she said.

She later explained that she plans to take a trip to Israel in order to learn Hebrew and get a fresh start on life.

Barr called the decision "cynical and frightful". "I did that to everyone's feeling who were hurt or who misunderstood me", Barr responded. "I've heard from thousands of people about it". "The fact is they did misunderstand it and it's time for them to apologize to me".

Tweeting may not be a side effect of the drug, but according to, Ambien (zolpidem) can cause "abnormal behaviors", such as "decreased awareness, hallucinations, memory problems, sleepwalking, sleep eating (and cooking), and even sleep driving".

While it's already been agreed upon that Barr's character will be killed off in the spinoff, on Brandon Straka's "Walk Away" YouTube show, Barr said the writers have made a decision to kill her character off by overdosing on opioids.

Roseanne lost her show on ABC following her racially charged tweets regarding the Barack Obama aide, Valerie Jarett. And now, thanks to Roseanne herself, we know how the character is set to die - an opioid overdose. It's so cynical and terrible.

"Oh yeah, they killed her", she told host Brandon Straka.

"It wasn't enough to [fire me], they had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show".
