Roseanne Barr Trashes 'Low-Rated' ABC for Canceling Her Show and Firing Her in Surprise Standup Return

14 Most Controversial Roseanne Barr -- And 'Roseanne' -- Moments of All Time

Andrew Dice Clay welcomed the former sitcom star to the stage over the weekend, where she proceeded to destroy her former network.

Andrew Dice Clay invited Roseanne Barr to join his set at the Laugh Factory Las Vegas on March 16, and he's been sharing clips to his Instagram page from her appearance ever since.

The fired sitcom star wasted no time laying into her former network during her first return to standup comedy since a tweet blew up her career.

"Dear ABC, when you asked me back to once again bail out your shit, f--kin' low-rated network, I did so with the same vigor I've always rocked, and I delivered you the highest ratings you've had in ten f--king years," Barr said.

"At the first sign of controversy, you killed me off with a drug overdose," she continued. "But you know what, I ain't dead bitches!"

After a late-night racist tweet in which she compared former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape, ABC quickly canceled "Roseanne" before ultimately firing their star.

The sitcom continued in her absence -- after she agreed to give up all rights to it -- transforming into "The Conners." While a hit for the network this past season, it could not match the ratings of its predecessor in its comeback season the year prior. ABC has yet to announce a second season, though it seems likely they will.

Roseanne has been in and out of the spotlight since, most recently when she concluded that Michelle Obama was behind her firing in an interview with Britain's Sunday Times magazine.

"When you get fired, you get real suicidal, but I'd never kill myself because that would make too many f--king people happy," Barr said Saturday night. "And I'm not about to make people happy."

Like Barr, Clay knows a thing or two about controversy; he's easily one of the most divisive comedians in the history of the format. And he didn't hold back in his own thoughts about ABC cancelling "Roseanne" in the wake of Barr's comments.

In one of his Instagram videos, where he got a backstage shot of Barr waiting to come out, Clay wrote an impassioned message on behalf of his friend of 33 years, as he introduced her.

"I really love her and I don't believe someone should be banished because of some dumb f--king thing they said," he wrote. "Abolish freedom of speech (especially when it's a joke ya dumb f--ks) and see what happens the day the laughter really dies." Clay also suggested that he and Barr may headline a summer comedy tour together.
