Roseanne Had Some Words For Her 9-Year-Old Co-Star

Roseanne Barr has something to say about her young black co-star, 9-year-old Jayden Rey.

On Thursday, May 31, 2018, the controversial comedian took to Twitter to share her thoughts following the cancellation of her ABC sitcom Roseanne due to her recent racist tweets. In a tweet that’s since been deleted, Barr addressed Rey, who played her granddaughter Mary Conner on the reboot, and revealed that she’s “ashamed” of herself for saying something that could’ve hurt the child.
