Roseanne Barr’s recent racist remarks led to major fan backlash and ABC's decision to cancel their hit show today. And RadarOnline.com can report that the controversial actress won't be receiving any sympathy calls from her onscreen daughter, Sara Gilbert.

A source told Radar exclusively that Gilbert, 43, who starred on the show as well as served as an executive producer, is “glad" Barr "is finally getting what she deserved a long time ago."

“She thinks that Roseanne is a disgusting and racist person," the source claimed. "Sara will never, ever work with her again.”

Radar was first to report Gilbert and 65-year-old Barr’s long-standing feud , which the source insisted was obvious to everyone on set.

“The two have been going at it over creative differences, particularly when it comes to political dialogue that is in the script,” the insider said in early April, referring to Barr’s support of President Donald Trump.

“Sara and the rest of the cast put up with Roseanne’s behavior for almost a decade. They are all thrilled the show got picked up already for another season, but they do not know how they will get through this season if Roseanne continues to act the way that she is.”

Radar also reported in January that Barr was "miserable" on set, and felt "overworked."

Prior to ABC’s bombshell announcement, Gilbert tweeted, “This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member.”

Gilbert's onscreen daughter Emma Kenney also slammed Barr's comments — and said she had planned to quit the show before it was cancelled.

"Bullies do not win. Ever," she fumed.

As Barr's fans know, the drama escalated quickly after she made offensive comments on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama.

In one of the tweets, Barr wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj."
