After Roseanne Barr’s highly controversial reboot of her popular 90s sitcom Rosanne was quickly canceled after she went on a vitriolic and racist Twitter rant, she hits social media once again to sing the praises of Kanye West’s "the greatest thing ever."
Barr went into a series of tweets, which some have been removed, thanking fans for their thoughts and prayer following the cancellation along with how she has (allegedly) been gaining “insight” on what she has said.
"I've been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood," Barr tweeted. "Needless2 say I'm NOT what people have accused me of! I’ve never practiced 'RACISM' in my entire life & never will."
The disgraced comedian went on to mention a Malcolm X documentary by Thomas Muhammad, who Barr has stated has agreed to speak on her behalf in the midst of her backlash because he "knows the work" Barr claims to have allegedly done for “civil rights”.
“I’ve been watching this new doc called "Malcolm X: An overwhelming Influence on the Black Power Movement.” Directed by my dear friend Thomas Muhammad (my campaign manager in 2012) who called me immediately when my show was canceled,” she tweeted. “Thomas Muhammad has agreed to speak for me, as he knows the work I have done in civil rights against racism ALL MY LIFE & understands my tweet was about Iran's regime, not race.”
During this time, according to Deadline, Rosanne seems to have found solace through Kanye West’s new album, Ye as she stated, "MUCH LOVE 2 U all-thanks for helping and praying for me! It worked! Listen to @kanyewest new album about mental illness, it's the greatest thing ever."
