Former television star Roseanne Barr ruffled feathers on social media again after nearly a year of having her show canceled by ABC. The comedy-series Roseanne was revived with a spin-off The Connor’s last year and quickly canceled following a racist tweet shared by Barr. Despite her minimizing the tweet to a joke of poor state, the public along with ABC executives thought it sufficed to get her all the way out of here.

Since getting dropped from the sitcom, the stand-up comedian took it to social media to wish everyone a Happy Easter last weekend. In true Roseanne fashion, however, the 66-year old star did not leave it at that. In a video shared through her personal Youtube channel, the television personality went on a weird rampage against God and fellow stand-up comedian Owen Benjamin, whom she called a “f*g.” But wait…there’s more. To make matters worse, Barr gifted us with a second video where she highlights her previous use of the word while also confirming she uses it privately. To somewhat redeem herself, she categorized herself as being queer but then retracted the statements by emphasizing she did not mean so in a coming-out way.
And it only gets weirder as Roseanne breaks down “I’m queer, I’m alien, I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me a queer, I guess. But I did put the Q in it. Bye!” Finally, to follow up on the other odd videos, she posted yet another even stranger one entitled “Malcolm X.” In the latter, she ridicules the previous videos, chimes in on not being racist and speaks on the monopoly surrounding the use of offensive words.
