A few years back, acclaimed comedienne and TV star Roseanne Barr wowed fans with a revival of her hit series. But leftists were outraged because the outspoken star was also a big Trump supporter. Eager to shut her down, Democrats pounced on a single tweet, twisting it to make her sound racist.
ABC, one of many liberal-run companies, fired Roseanne from her own show. Cancel culture won.
But now, the tide is turning. Roseanne continued to fight, airing a comedy special on Fox News’ streaming service. And now, she is making an announcement that will have liberals fuming. Because she is making a big comeback, on the very service that canceled her.
On Friday, comedian Roseanne Barr announced that she would be partnering up with Publicsq to start a show on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“I couldn’t be more excited to start a show right here on X,” Barr wrote on Twitter. “Elon Musk has said that ‘Comedy is legal’ on his site. We will certainly be taking advantage of that!”

Woah. Years ago, Roseanne was “canceled” over something she posted on Twitter. Today, she is launching her own show on the same platform, sponsored by Publicsq. Talk about just desserts! Not only that, but she signed a six-figure deal with the marketplace, perhaps the biggest deal they’ve made with a show.
Roseanne referenced Elon Musk, who proclaimed that “Comedy is legal” on Twitter after he bought it. Musk has been aggressively changing the culture on the social network, restoring free speech after years of censorship.
In fact, Musk is changing the entire brand for the social network. He is rolling out a new name “X” and replacing the old branding of a blue bird.
Liberals claimed that Twitter would collapse after Musk took over. But it appears just the opposite is happening. Engagement appears to be increasing, as people eager to express themselves flock to the website.
Musk is campaigning to get creators on the network, promising revenue from their content. Roseanne is the second notable personality to announce an exclusive show on Twitter, following Tucker Carlson (who is also sponsored by Publicsq).
Could this spark a revolution of comedy on X? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
