The fact that you are asking reeks of desperation. You got caught being a racist fuck. Deal with it rather than frantically trying to blame others and things.— Shaun Campbell (@ssnsailor) May 31, 2018
Perhaps it's the Ambien that's letting you believe all these weird conspiracy theories, Roseanne. Maybe time to get off drugs?— Shelley Parsons (@Diabolic600) May 30, 2018

Maybe it's time for Barr to actually leave Twitter before she gets herself in more trouble.
If it is true it shows one strong black woman calling another strong black woman for advice on how to handle an employee who posted racist remarks online.....bosses have been conferring with others for years on how to handle an unruly employee why is this a thing now?— Sandy Mitchell (@SanDeE1014) May 30, 2018
