Roseanne objects to character's exit

Today 13:36 GMT

Roseanne Barr has objected to the way her character has been written out of The Conners, a spin-off show to her cancelled self-titled sitcom.

In a statement co-written by her "longtime Rabbi and friend" Shmuley Boteach, Barr said "killing off the Roseanne Conner character" was "a choice the network did not have to make.". "After repeated and heartfelt apologies, the network was unwilling to look past a regrettable mistake, thereby denying the twin American values of both repentance and forgiveness," she continued. The cancellation of Roseanne, she went on, was "an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive."
