The 61-year-old actress and comedian launched into a long-winded Twitter rant on Saturday, spurred by her frustration with television executives and one unnamed showrunner in particular.
"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," Barr tweeted. "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."
"I don't have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I'm old," she added.
"Development process went like this: show runner disappeared for 7 weeks-never returned any calls from me-I was told she 'goes in2 a cave,'" Barr said of an unidentified series.
I was also told that this was 'her process'-and that the result would be fantastic. I asked why I had been removed totally from the process. They had less than no interest in including me in the development of a show that was built on 'my brand'. It was horrible, but I kept on bc I had 2 C it thru-out of a bizarre interest in the insane outcome. The script didn't resonate with me-I tried 2 b kind about it. 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 then vowed to take her next project to the Internet -- a series about the television development process -- before admitting to "mental health issues."

one thing I've learned in Hollywood-every time someone tells me I'm a genius-tht means I am going to get fucked.— Roseanne Barr (@TheRealRoseanne) November 30, 2013
"Hollywood's always trying to kill their own stars-whether creatively or physically-burying them under psychic stress, greed and gas lighting," she said. "Forgot! the sexism and classism of hollywood is matched by its racism and homophobia-all of which is dwarfed by its psychopathology."
She left social media users with this parting promise:
"I'm writing directing editing & starring in my new show by myself. F*** everybody," she added.
