Roseanne Barr Blasts Television Producers in Twitter Rant


Roseanne Barr


The veteran comedienne says she's 'never going to work in television again,' claiming she has been 'insulted/assaulted for over a year.'

Roseanne Barr has slammed Hollywood in a series of Twitter posts. Over the weekend, she took to the micro-blogging site to express her disappointment to television producers, writing in one tweet, "I'm never going to work in television again. I'm never going to even attempt it. I feel as if I've been insulted/assaulted for over a year."

"Actually, for many years - from my first reality show to my second and two failed development details," she added. "Don't call me-I won't call you. I'm gone." Hinting at what made her feel insulted, she wrote, "Not ONE word remained of any ideas I had. I was constantly 'corrected' as if I had no track record whatsoever. I'm enraged over all of it."

Without mentioning a name, she shared one hurtful experience with a showrunner of a project, "development process went like this: show runner disappeared for 7 weeks-never returned any calls from me-I was told she 'goes in2 a cave'."

She continued, "I was also told that this was 'her process'-and that the result would be fantastic. I asked why I had been removed totally from the process. They had less than no interest in including me in the development of a show that was built on 'my brand'. It was horrible, but I kept on bc."

"I don't have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I'm old," she claimed, sharing an advice, "here's my advice: if u know something is wrong frm the start, don't try2 make it work-don't excuse ppl's insensitivity. They never improve."

When people commented on her rant, Barr replied, "newsflash: Yes, I do have mental health issues. Decent ppl refrain from bullying, lying to, manipulating & taking advantage of ppl like me."

She also wrote, "one thing I've learned in Hollywood-every time someone tells me I'm a genius-tht means I am going to get fucked," before saying that the tweets were the result of a little too much drinking. "anyway, no more drunk tweeting late at night for me!" she said.

The 61-year-old comedienne then responded to requests of interview, "all of hollywood is calling me for an interview: here's my statement: i am done being mentally tortured-I quit." She added, "I'm writing directing editing & starring in my new show by myself. F**k everybody."
