Fans already knew that Roseanne Barr would not be appearing in the upcoming series The Conners.

Roseanne Barr has responded to John Goodman going on record to defend her, claiming she isn't actually racist, despite the controversial tweets that got their show "Roseanne" axed.

"I thank John Goodman for speaking truth about me, despite facing certain peril from producers and network", she wrote late Monday.

"I guess he'll be mopey and sad because his wife's dead", Goodman said of his blue-collar hero character Dan, in an interview with the Sunday Times.

"I know, I know, for a fact that she's not a racist", he said.

The ratings-hit Roseanne reboot was abruptly canceled May 29 after Barr's racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama. I'm a depressive anyway, so any excuse that I can get to lower myself, I will.

The exact way Roseanne will be removed from the Conner family hasn't been revealed but Goodman believes she'll be killed off.

"I was surprised. I'll put it this way, I was surprised at the response." the actor said when asked about his reaction to the news of Roseanne's cancelation". "And she's still going through hell", Goodman said.

Goodman reached out to Barr and thanked her for allowing the show to go on without her. "But that had a great deal to do with it, more than I wanted to admit".

Goodman said he has not had contact with Barr since the controversy, aside from an email he sent her after she agreed to relinquish her rights to the series.
