The revived “ Roseanne ” sitcom will bring the Conner family and the life of the country up to date when it debuts March 27 on ABC. Barr was also pressed to defend her character ’ s support for Trump in light of what one reporter called his “racism and xenophobia.”

When Roseanne returns to ABC in March, it returns with the revelation that the titular character voted for Donald Trump.

"I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in. Half the people voted for Trump and half didn't. It's just realistic," star Roseanne Barr, who is an outspoken Trump supporter in real life, said on Monday.

Executive producer Bruce Helford added that Roseanne's husband Dan (John Goodman) "didn't necessarily" vote for Trump, ("I don't think he voted," he said.) while Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) was pro-Hillary Clinton.

Barr went on to note that the show in its original run always set out to explore working class people, and many working-class people voted for Trump. Additionally, she said that she is not a "Trump apologist" and there are things he has done that she doesn't agree with.

But not everyone is pleased with the decision to have Barr, an outspoken Trump supporter in real life, play a Trump supporter on TV.

"I won't be watching," commented one fan on the show's official Instagram account. "This was my all-time favorite TV show and you're tainting its legacy and ruining it with political bulls**t. There's no redeeming a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, ignorant, dangerous hate-mongering "President" no matter what your blue collar angle or justification is.

Added another, "I was really excited about this until I read that Roseanne’s character will be portrayed as a Trump supporter."

Dozens of other fans sounded off on Twitter.

Still, others took issue with the boycott and threw their support behind Barr instead.
