Roseanne Barr went on a Twitter rampage over the Thanksgiving weekend, lashing out at TV executives who left her feeling “insulted/assaulted” and vowing that she was “never going to work in television again.”

This 61-year-old comedian, whose last TV project was the Lifetime reality show, “Roseanne’s Nuts,” tweeted, “I’m never going to work in television again. I’m never going to even attempt it. I feel as if I’ve been insulted/assaulted for over a year.”

“Actually, for many years-from my first reality show to my second and two failed development deals. Don’t call me-I won’t call you. I’m gone,” Barr continued.

She added, “I don’t have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I’m old.”

The comic criticized one unnamed showrunner in particular, claiming the executive had her “removed totally from the process” of developing a new show, in which Barr had been set to star, for NBC.

Barr added, “There were hardly any jokes in the script, and I didn’t connect with the characters at all. My family told me 2 quit-I kept on trying.”

Barr concluded her Twitter rant by writing, “I’m writing directing editing & starring in my new show by myself. F*** everybody.”

Barr’s popular ABC sitcom, “Roseanne,” aired from 1988-1997 and co-starred John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert.
