Love her or hate her, Roseanne Barr is still very much in the limelight. Question is, what is she actually doing with herself now that she’s been booted from ABC? As it turns out, a whole lot of reflecting on social media.
The 65-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday, June 13 to assure fans that “she’s fine,” despite the extreme backlash she’s faced over her racist tweet. In a series of fairly manic messages, the mother-of-five unleashed what can only be described as "word vomit" on her fans.
“1) I want u all 2 know I’m fine. I’ve been using this time 2 reflect & 2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood..,” Roseanne began. “Needless 2 say I’m NOT what people have accused me of! I’ve never practiced 'RACISM' in my entire life & never will. Meantime…”
What followed her already jumbled introduction appeared to be a misguided attempt at reconciliation with not only her fans, but the African American community as a whole.
As if name-dropping Malcom X wasn't transparent enough, Roseanne continued by promoting Kanye West’s new album. “Listen to @kanyewest new album about mental illness, it’s the greatest thing ever,” she tweeted.
2) I’ve been watching this new doc called "Malcolm X: An overwhelming Influence on th Black Power Movement.” Directed by my dear friend Thomas Muhammad (my campaign manager in 2012)who called me immediately when my show was canceled. https://t.co/honkeu54wl— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) June 14, 2018
In the days following her initial diatribe, Roseanne has continued to keep fans updated on her whereabouts. In fact, on Thursday, June 14, the former TV star took to Twitter once more to share a play-by-play of her day.
"Today I am making picture frames with my beautiful precious mom, and listening to her and Johnny play music together. I'm in heaven!" she wrote. "'I'm singing all day. I'm learning Amy Winehouse songs. Life is great. The hounds bark, but the caravan moves on. LAUGH ALL YOU CAN EVERYDAY! love u all," Roseanne continued.
While it seems her career is very much over — for the time being — her social media presence is stronger than ever.
