Actress Sara Gilbert, an actress and producer on ABC's recently-canceled reboot of "Roseanne", spoke out publicly for the first time Monday on the fallout and media storm that's unfolded over the past week.
"I would like to say that this has been a very hard week", the 43-year-old actress (who played Darlene Conner) said on The Talk on Monday, June 4. This show has always been about diversity, love and inclusion, and it's sad to see it end in this way. "However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC has made".
At the age of 13, Gilbert was cast as Darlene Conner, the sarcastic middle child of Barr's TV alter-ego, inhabiting the role for the series' original run from 1988 to 1997 before reprising the character on the short-lived revival.
Her tweet was met with support from Hollywood, but anger from Roseanne herself, who quickly called out her on-screen daughter, and son Michael Fishman, for "throwing her under the bus" over her mistakes.
"In addition to my statement, I would like to say this has been a very hard week".
