Roseanne Barr Threatening to Expose Co-Stars’ Emails Expressing Support Amid Backlash (Report)

*In Roseanne Barr’s tweet storm early Wednesday morning, the freshly-fired actress went after the her TV children for allegedly expressing they would stand by her following her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, and then reportedly throwing her under the bus once ABC announced it was cancelling the show.

According to Radar Online, sources say the actress is telling those close to her that her castmates, including Sara Gilbert, had told her they would “weather the storm together,” but quickly turned on her after the cancellation news.

Feeling betrayed, Roseanne is now allegedly planning to expose them all by releasing emails in which they said they would support her.

In the meantime, Roseanne lashed out at two of her TV children, Gilbert and Michael Fishman, after they tweeted statements denouncing her racism.

Gilbert, who played Barr’s daughter Darlene Conner on the show, tweeted that the situation is very “incredibly sad” for the entire cast, and made it clear that Barr’s opinions don’t reflect those of her co-stars.

Responding to Gilbert’s tweet about her disappointment in Barr, the actress wrote: “Wow! unreal.”

Fishman, who plays D.J., the father of Roseanne’s black grandchild on the show, wrote a lengthy response about Barr’s racist tweet, calling it “reprehensible and intolerable,” and pointing out that his character on the show “was designed to represent the inclusive nature of my views. To represent portions of society often marginalized.”

Read in full below:

In response to Fishman’s statement, Barr angrily replied: “I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME . You throw me under the bus. Nice!”

Roseanne’s TV kids weren’t the only ones upset.

Emma Kenney, who plays Roseanne’s teen granddaughter Harris Connor-Healy, also tweeted her disgust over Barr’s “ape” comment and revealed she was all set to follow consulting producer Wanda Sykes in quitting the show before it was cancelled.

Costars John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf have yet to comment on the cancellation.

Comedian Sandra Bernhard, who played the recurring role of Nancy during the show’s original run, did respond to the controversy Tuesday during her SiriusXM show Sandyland.

“I’m really trying to breathe through it and stay in that dedicated-to-the-one-I-love mindset, but I gotta be honest with you. I’m kinda hitting the wall with this. I’m kinda bummed out. I’ve kinda had it,” Bernhard said.
