Ahead Of ‘The Connors’ Premiere, Roseanne Barr Is Moving To Israel

Roseanne Barr won’t be watching The Connors premiere on TV. She plans to get far away from it all…far, far away!

Escaping The Hot Seat

The comedienne announced that she is moving to Israel for a sabbatical away from Hollywood. “I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there,” Barr announced. “And that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers. I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go,” she said. The actress is Jewish, so the trip will allow her to learn more about her heritage.

Good Morning America

This big news comes out after Barr was recently fired from ABC’s reboot of Roseanne. Though the show was very successful, ABC canceled the show after Barr sent an offensive tweet about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. In the tweet, Barr called Jarrett  a mix of “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.” Needless to say, the tweet didn’t go over well.

Too Little, Too Late

Barr quickly apologized for her tweet, but the damage was already done. Not only did the show get canceled, but the actress received a lot of backlash online for her comment.

Barr later revealed that friends told her that her apology ended up making things worse than they already were. “They said, ‘You made a fatal mistake…apologizing to the Left,” she admitted in an interview. “Once you apologize to them they never forgive, they just try to beat you down until you don’t exist. That’s how they do things. They don’t accept apologies.”

Moving On

Nonetheless, the rest of the cast still has jobs. ABC created a Roseanne spinoff, The Conners, to continue to capitalize on the reboot’s success. Sara Gilbert’s character, Darlene, will take the helm, with John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Lecy Goranson (Becky) and Michael Fishman (D.J.) also returning.

There’s no official word on how the show will write off Barr‘s namesake, but Goodman teased that she will be killed off. Regardless of how her story comes to an end, The Connors will be left to pick up the pieces. Viewers will see how they handle Barr’s absence when the show premieres on October 16.
