She explains that she was so upset, she ultimately decided to quit the show. However, when she called her representative to share her decision, she got a surprise.

Kenney, who started her career at age 12 with a recurring role on the Showtime series Shameless, is one of several members of the Roseanne cast who spoke out about Barr’s racist attack on a former staffer under President Obama.

Wanda Sykes, the African American comedienne who served as a “consulting producer” on the show, quit even before it was canceled, and Sara Gilbert, a member of the panel on CBS’s The Talk, who is also a producer of the Roseanne reboot, spoke out about Barr’s ugly comments.

On the new Roseanne, Kenney plays the part of Harris Conner-Healy, whose mother brings her into the Connor household, run by her grandmother, played by Barr.

In April, when Kenney was asked during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America how she feels about Barr, she had only praise, calling her “cool.”

“She’s such a maternal kind person,” Kenney said in April. “And we have the same taste in cheese. It’s brie cheese.”

Apparently sharing a love of Brie was not enough to keep Kenney on the show after the star’s tweet brought a wave of controversy and anger.
