Former sitcom star and Macadamia nut farmer Roseanne Barr has quit Twitter over “Jew hating,” according to a Facebook status she posted. The actress and activist often shared right-wing (but also all over the map) opinions on Twitter, praising Donald Trump, attacking the Clintons and ranting about the occasional CIA mind-control program. But she deleted her account earlier this week; the account has since returned, but now it is private.
“I cannot take the jew hating on twitter so I left,” the actress wrote on her private Facebook wall.
Roseanne took down her Twitter account as ABC is working on an eight-episode reboot of “Roseanne,” set to debut next year. The show has already generated some controversy for its plans to feature a gender-fluid character, which has already led to calls for a boycott from One Million Moms, who surely must have something better to do.
It’s unclear exactly what “Jew hating” Roseanne faced, though Jew-hating and harassment are a feature of Twitter dot com in the Trump era, not a bug. Maybe she should have quit after this:
Thank you Roseanne, very much appreciated. https://t.co/COXEJ1In8D
