Roseanne Barr is never shy about her opinions, and in her latest Twitter rant over the weekend, the actress threatened to quit Hollywood for good and go into “geriatric porn.”

“I’m never going to work in television again. I’m never going to even attempt it. I feel as if I’ve been insulted/assaulted for over a year,” Barr wrote Saturday morning. “Actually, for many years — from my first reality show to my second and two failed development details. Don’t call me-I won’t call you. I’m gone.”

She continued: “Not ONE word remained of any ideas I had. I was constantly ‘corrected’ as if I had no track record whatsoever. I’m enraged over all of it.”

Barr’s most recent show was the reality program Roseanne’s Nuts, which aired on Lifetime in 2011.

Barr went on to criticize an unnamed showrunner on a new project. “I don’t have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I’m old,” she wrote.

“Newsflash: Yes, I do have mental health issues,” she wrote in another post. “Decent ppl refrain from bullying, lying to, manipulating & taking advantage of ppl like me.”

By mid-morning on Saturday, Barr clarified that the tweets were the result of a little too much imbibing. “No more drunk tweeting late at night for me!” she wrote.

Later on Saturday, though, she again lashed out at critics who had taken issue with some of her tweets. “I’m writing directing editing & starring in my new show by myself. F— everybody,” she posted Saturday afternoon.
