Roseanne Barr believes she was fired from her eponymous sitcom revival because of her support for President Donald Trump.
"When it happened it was like I thought I was gonna lose my life. It was devastating and horrible and is unprecedented too that they would do that to me," Barr, 66, told The Daily Mail in an interview released Tuesday.
"It was a perfect storm. That's what I think, just the perfect storm at the perfect time," she told the outlet. "Kind of a little bit too perfect. Sometimes I think, 'Was this orchestrated? The whole thing?'"
ABC canceled the "Roseanne" reboot last May after a tweet where she compared President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to "Planet of the Apes." She apologized at the time and blamed her remark on Ambien, but the damage was done. ABC launched a spinoff, "The Conners," which killed off Barr's character.
