New Delhi [India], June 23 (ANI): Fans are divided over the latest development in the 'Roseanne' drama.
After much hullabaloo, television broadcasting company ABC on Thursday announced it will bring back a 'Roseanne' spin-off - tentatively called 'The Conners' - sans its controversial lead, Roseanne Barr.
It stressed in its announcement that former star Barr - who gave rise to a controversy after calling Valerie Jarrett, the former senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, the baby of the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes" - will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series.
While some people lauded the network's decision, others took to Twitter to let their voices be heard.
Here's what they posted:
"Roseanne without Roseanne is just like Diamond without Silk; It won't work!"



"Will you watch "the connors" on ABC? Will have the entire cast of roseanne on it except Ms. Barr"



"I like it. We'll be watching. I was never a fan of Roseanne, but I always liked John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Gilbert and Fishman."



"@therealroseanne @ABCNetwork I was so excited Roseanne came back to TV. But I will no longer be watching. She posts one regretful tweet & world loses it's freaking mind. But it's open season on @realDonaldTrump & family, with @iamfonda posting horrific threats about Barron."



"Not watching without Roseanne"
