Roseanne Barr returns to Twitter shortly after fans convinced her not to leave over 'Anti-Semitic' remarks
Fans convinced Roseanne by saying that she could never let the others win. They said that despite it being frustrating, they needed fighters like Roseanne in it to win.
Roseanne Barr decided to take a stand against anti-semitism. The actress decided to quit social media in order to throw light on the subject but soon changed her mind as she said she was 'convinced' by her fans to stay. Taking to Instagram on Saturday (May 19), Roseanne tweeted that she would be leaving Twitter.
"I already deleted facebook five years ago when the anti-semitism there became toxic. I am leaving all social media except Instagram," she wrote. She said the decision to leave was made “in good conscience.” "I must in good conscience leave Twitter. bye bye!" she later tweeted. However, several of her fans were quick to comment and make the actress realize that leaving social media will do no good.
"Roseanne, that’s the goal. They want to discourage you so you leave. They want us all to be discouraged by low numbers as they shadowban us. Don’t let them win. We can NEVER let them win. As frustrating as it is, this is the fight we need - and we need fighters like YOU in it!" one user tweeted.
Another wrote, "Roseanne you leave and they stay. We lose your voice. Don’t let it work that way. Your millions of fans are on here and love your tweets. Stick around..." After a couple of hours, Roseanne admitted that she had made the decision of not quitting Twitter.
"welp-ppl have convinced me 2 stay w them here," she tweeted. This comes after Roseanne's show, 'Roseanne' gained praises and backlash for their decision of including plotlines which spoke about politics. ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey told reporters earlier that the new season will now deal more with episodes about family than politics.
Roseanne was quick to clarify that ABC has always been supportive of the ideas the show has aired so far. "ABC has been nothing but supportive of me and my show and all of our ideas. The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season," she wrote.
