Roseanne's Twitter Rant

Roseanne Barr is furious over a joke on Two and a Half Men that seems awfully familiar, and now she's threatening to sue.

Hell hath no fury like a Roseanne scorned. The sitcom star is absolutely livid after hearing one of her original jokes come out of Ashton Kutcher's mouth on Two and a Half Men without her permission.

Barr directed her anger at both Kutcher and show creator Chuck Lorre, who was a writer on Roseanne for several seasons.

"Friends told me that ashton kuchner [sic] is stealing my jokes without any sense of being conscious of being a f***ing thief. #chucklorre," she wrote on Twitter.

"HOLLYWOOD TV 'WRITERS' r actually just souless thieves of comics' intellectual property. #f***ashtonKuchner #f***Chuck #f***thieves… a****** kuchner is stealing my 'wet where i'm supposed to be dry' joke @JohnnyArgent motherf****** thief"

Barr is saving up the jokes herself for an upcoming show of her own — she recently inked a TV deal to develop and star in a new series for NBC.

This isn't the first time Barr has gone off on Lorre. At this summer's Comic-Con, she revealed that she had fired Lorre from Roseanne because he drank too much and that she'd refused a guest spot on Two and a Half Men because she thought the script was "putrid."

In 2011, she defended Charlie Sheen in his feud with Lorre, writing on her website, "those s*** chuck lorre lines could choke a f***ing horse, and render any actor who recites them stone cold soul dead. No grown man could really look himself in the mirror knowing that he delivers s*** jokes and adolescent sniggering over breasts and women's body parts lines to the Tea partier types who are big fans of Chuck's hilarious hijinx."

I agree. I don't get the anti-woman humour of Chuck Lorre and Seth McFarland. When did grade three humour become funny? When did women accept this? When I was a child when boys tried to shock you with body sounds you walked away. This made them stop. I have worked with men in a male business. I hate dirty jokes. They always respected that. What they talked about amongst themselves is their business and I respect their right to their conversations. This seems to be a effort very much like Andrew Dice Clay to air anger and bitterness. If not for Charlie Sheen, Melissa McCarthy,and the cast of Mike and Molly this would be a toilet joke. Wake up!!!! No shock every goes.

I don't understand the attraction of Chuck Lorre shows or that of Seth McFarland. Every year there is one joke that is funny. How sad are we that grade three boys humour dominates the air waves? When did women say this is funny? I am disappointed that Actresses Choose to be involved with producers that clearly hate women. Love her or hate her Rosanne has great point. Good on you!!!!
