RadarOnline.com readers know the upcoming series was created after Barr’s Roseanne revival was canceled due to her infamous racist tweet, where she compared former Obama-staffer Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
Once her very controversial comment gained traction, Barr, 65, was slammed by ABC executives, as well as by nearly all her former costars. On-screen husband John Goodman, 66, was basically the only star that remained on her side!
Now, Barr will likely be left off The Conners’s entire story line—and she’s not surprised.
"I just have to be neutral and walk away," she said during her interview. "I did walk away, so people can keep their jobs."
She added that she’s happy her costars—aka Goodman—didn’t lose their jobs because of her mistake.
"I’m not going to curse it or bless it,” Barr said. "I’m staying neutral. That’s what I do. I’m staying neutral. I’m staying away from it. Not wishing bad on anyone, and I don’t wish good for my enemies. I don’t. I can’t. I just stay neutral. That’s what I gotta do."
The Conners premieres Tuesday, October 16 8|7c on ABC.
