Roseanne Barr breaks her Twitter silence after hiatus

After informing her followers that she would be taking a hiatus from the social media site, she was back in force with another message for them.


Roseanne Barr's highly racist tweet at the end of May 2018 resulted in her popular Roseanne reboot being immediately cancelled by ABC. She quickly backtracked, blaming Ambien for the blunder, but the damage was done.

Just 4 days after issuing her apology and telling fans she would be signing off Twitter for a while, she was back on the site encouraging people to vote in the primaries.

Wednesday June 6 is the primaries in the states of California, New Jersey, Iowa, Montana, and New Mexico.

Barr took to Twitter to implore people to "Vote for freedom of speech."


The comment is unsurprising, as she just recently demonstrated her advocacy for "free speech" with her racist tweet about former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

She then went and added another election-themed comment, advising everyone to vote for "individual rights" rather than "mob rule."

The comment about "mob rule" could be a reaction from Barr in light of the storm that followed her tweet, with co-stars, fans, and even her network deciding to sever ties with her.


She later shared a link to the National Memorial For Peace And Justice, which is dedicated to the "legacy of enslaved black people" and other members of minorities who have experienced injustices.

While she took a 3-day long hiatus from Twitter, these tweets could indicate that she is back in full force on the social media platform, and has no intention of backing down from her political viewpoint.

Shortly after the now-deleted tweet about Jarrett was posted, ABC announced that they would be cancelling the Roseanne reboot effective immediately.

Barr quickly reacted on Twitter, apologizing for her idiocy, but also vowing to fight back against the cancellation.

Instead, on May 31, she apologized one final time and decided to accept her fate for the disgusting comments.
