Roseanne Barr Goes On Nasty, Anti-Hollywood, Anti-Anderson Cooper Twitter Rant

Look, lady: You had a great run with a great show for many seasons, but lately your ideas have not be percolating to the top. It might be that your ideas are infused 47 flavors of crazy. I don’t know, but not everything is someone else’s fault. When things don’t go your way, maybe it’s not the wise to lash out at everyone else. We can read your Tweets, and many of us assume that you take the same approach to your many failed development deals as you do with your Twitter account. Remember that schizophrenic fight you had with your ex-husband on Twitter a few months ago? If I read something like that, I might get the idea that you’re not a good person to work with, although I do appreciate that Mindy Kaling still respects her television elders, no matter how crazy they might be (just remember, Mindy, “never go with a hippie to a second location.”)

Anyway, this latest anti-Hollywood rant, which inexplicably throws Anderson Cooper under the bus, is precisely why the very people you are calling out for not working directly with you probably don’t want to work directly with you. You’re insane, and while I appreciate that you have some self-awareness about that, that self-awareness unfortunately does not extend to deleting your Twitter account to that you might avoid idiotic rants like this one, which I cleaned up best I could, because honey, your spelling and grammar is all over the place. It takes a certain amount of audacity to call others morons when you can barely string a coherent sentence together.

I’m going to start doing porn now — f**k it — geriatric porn. I’m never going to work in television again. I’m never even going to attempt it. It feels as though I’ve been insulted/assaulted for over a year. I don’t have the emotional stability to stomach being manipulated and lied to anymore — now that I’m old.

The development process went like this: Showrunner disappeared for seven weeks, never returned any of my calls. I was told she goes into a cave. I was also told this was her process and the result would be fantastic. I asked why I had been totally removed from the process. When I was told that no star gets to write her own show, I asked, ‘Who writes Tina Fey’s show, then?’

One thing I’ve learned in Hollywood is that everytime someone tells me that I’m a genius — that means I’m about to be f**ked.

I forgot! Sexism and classism in Hollywood is only matched by its racism and homophobia — all of which is dwarfed by its psychopathology. Everything — every word I turned in to NBC and NBC Studios was censored and thrown out. They wanted ‘my brand’ without me in it. Worse than Matt W. I’ve ben disrespected and ripped off by Hollywood. F**k Hollywood. F**k every stupid prick there. Misogynist classist white colonial f**k. F**l these Hollywood anti-semite bitchy Jewish women loathing f***tards … the women in hollywood cannot fall to their knees to suck dick fast enough.

Censor this s*** u f****ing prick mother***king asshole dispshit bankster whites of Hollywood neo con anti semites. ANDERSON COOPER IS A TOAD.’ No wonder Alec Baldwin calls people names and sh*t. He should lay off the gays and go for the morons, though.

Roseanne Barr, ladies and gentlemen! She currently over on Twitter bragging about how many new followers her rant has elicited, although she apparently doesn’t consider the fact that most of them just like to watch a good train wreck.
