UPDATE 1:45 p.m. EST: ABC has cancelled Roseanne.

It’s not a huge secret that Roseanne Barr, the star of the ABC hit sitcom, is a rampant conspiracy theorist who likely spends a little too much time in the annals of the internet.

But a glance at Barr’s Twitter feed early Tuesday morning should alarm even the most ardent QAnon-crazy: she falsely claimed Chelsea Clinton was married to the nephew of every anti-Semite’s favorite boogeyman, George Soros, who she accused of trying to “overthrow” the “constitutional republic”, raved about CIA mind control, called Chris Cillizza a “a fucking mouth breather”, called Hillary Clinton “a colostomy jug cuz full of shite,” and made a racist attack on a former Obama official.

Barr’s frantic Twitter marathon kicked off with two tweets — which have since been deleted — claiming Chelsea Clinton was married to George Soros‘s nephew, a (false) rumor that was initially spread by Scott Baio, of all people:

As you can see, Kurt Schilchter, a man who is somehow employed by an actual media outlet, also got involved in the conspiracy.

Barr expanded on her grand Soros theory, also managing to tie in a supposed CIA mind control program:

@therealroseanne

soros’ goal; the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore US law & favor ‘feelings’ instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that ‘racist’.

@therealroseanne

as soon as americans unite against disinfo mkultra classist narrative, the better we will all b

Meanwhile, CNN’s Chris Cillizza is a “mouth breather” and Hillary Clinton is “its a colostomy jug cuz full of shite“.

And to top it all off, Barr sent out what appears to be a super racist tweet about former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, claiming she is the baby of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes:

Enjoy this mess, ABC executives.

UPDATE – 9:50 a.m. EST: Barr retweeted this response from Chelsea Clinton and acknowledged that the former first daughter is not married to Soros’ nephew.

Chelsea Clinton

@ChelseaClinton

Good morning Roseanne – my given middle name is Victoria. I imagine George Soros’s nephews are lovely people. I’m just not married to one. I am grateful for the important work @OpenSociety does in the world. Have a great day! https://twitter.com/therealroseanne/status/1001310680111243269 

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

I’m sorry-Chelsea Clinton IS NOT married to a nephew of George Soros-i apologize for the mistake! !

However, she’s still going on a wild tweeting and retweeting spree, providing charming content like this:

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

CORRECTION: CHELSEA CLINTON IS NOT MARRIED TO A SOROS NEPHEW. HER HUSBAND IS THE SON OF A CORRUPT SENATOR, SO SORRY!: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/true-father-of-the-groom/ 

Ed Mezvinsky — Father of the Groom

The father of Chelsea Clinton’s husband is a former congressman who pled guilty to fraud charges.

By the way, here’s how she’s explaining that tweet about Jarrett being the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes:

@KFILE

ABC is doing their best to ignore some of these statements from Roseanne and she is making it really hard for them by taking it to next level here. https://twitter.com/therealroseanne/status/1001353729872773121 

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

It’s a joke-

And a defense against claims her comment was racist:

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.

UPDATE – 11:20 a.m. EST: After a public outcry aimed at ABC, Barr has deleted several of her tweets, said she is sorry to Jarrett, and announced that she is stepping away from Twitter.

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter.

Roseanne Barr

@therealroseanne

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

UPDATE – 12:40 p.m. EST: Wanda Sykes, a comedian and producer of ABC’s Roseanne, announced on Twitter that she is leaving the show.

Still no statement from the network on the fate of its hit sitcom.

UPDATE – 1:55 p.m. EST: ABC has announced that they are cancelling Barr’s show in light of her comments.
