Barr was sacked from her hit sitcom after she tweeted out a political attack on former Obama adviser Valarie Jarrett that many people assumed was a "racist" attack on the half black and half Iranian former official.

When asked on the YouTube show if she felt betrayed by her castmates, Barr put it simply. "They had to cruelly insult them and that's what they chose to do".

The penultimate episode of "Roseanne" weighed in on the nation's opioid crisis, revealing that Barr's character was in the throes of a painkiller addiction. "I want to stay away from it", Barr reportedly told talk show host Dr. Oz. "She should have died as a hero".
