Rosanne Bar is Back
Ousted Hollywood star Rosanne Barr took the stage on Fox Nation after years of being bashed by fellow Hollywood stars after a controversial Tweet.
Roseanne Barr has a message for those who tried to take her down: “Cancel This!”
The always controversial standup comedy icon opened up about how she felt when the hit revival of the classic sitcom “Roseanne” was replaced with “The Conners,” admitting she “can’t bear” to watch the show.
“When they killed my character off, that was a message to me, knowing that I’m mentally ill or have mental health issues, that they did want me to commit suicide,” Barr, 70, told Los Angeles Times while promoting her first standup special in nearly 20 years. “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!” premieres Feb. 13 on Fox Nation.
The comedian announces her current persona non grata status in the title of her first new comedy special in over 15 years: Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!
Fox Nation Features Rosanne Barr
In a clip from the special, she pokes fun at pronouns and gender identity.
“These people, they have no concept of reality. They’ve been living in a bubble forever. Asking questions have nothing to do with the real world,” she says in the stand-up special. “What is my gender, mom? What is my gender?” she joked, “Your gender is, get a job. That’s your gender.”
Barr, sporting a denim-on-denim look, continued: “What are they thinking? Ask a – what is a woman? They don’t know that? That one they’re asking all the time. What is a woman? I’ll tell you what a woman is. A woman is me.
Barr reveals that she’s had four bouts with “the COVID” since the pandemic began in 2020. “I lost all my taste,” she adds. “You know, I have no taste and no smell either, all this time. But I look at it like it’s a silver lining in the COVID cloud because I don’t eat so much! I’m not wanting to eat everything because it don’t taste that good, so I lost some weight.”

Rosanne’s Hollywood Exit
Barr’s road to cancellation began in 2018, when she posted a tweet about Valerie Jarret, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, suggesting that the Iranian-born government official had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
At the time, she was starring in a revival of her era-defining ’80s ABC sitcom, Roseanne. In the aftermath of her tweet, Barr — who was already a vocal advocate for President Donald Trump — was fired from the series, and her alter ego was killed off between seasons.
In the stand up routine on Fox Nation, Rosanne said, “I’m the only person who’s lost everything, whose life’s work was stolen, stolen by people who I thought loved me. And there was silence,” Barr said. “There was no one in Hollywood really defending me publicly, except for Mo’nique, who is a brave, close, dear friend.”
