Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Comedian Roseanne Barr took to Twitter this weekend to clear up rumors claiming she recently suffered a heart attack.
"I'm fine," Barr tweeted Sunday. "I was the victim of a prank. I've had no medical issues. I'm spending time at home with my family and relaxing."
E! News reported a man who said he was Barr's assistant called Sputnik News radio host Lee Stranahan as he was filming a video and said Barr was ill.
The 66-year-old comedian has been keeping a low profile since she was famously fired from her revived, eponymous sitcom Roseanne for making a racially charged joke on social media. She apologized for her behavior, but the show was revamped as The Conners and killed off her character this fall.
