Roseanne Barr has grown a reputation of being one of America's controversial personalities, and the current backlash against her is just the latest example.
Since her career took off in the '80s, she has been embroiled in numerous controversies on and off screen.
From a "distasteful" national anthem performance to her recent racist tweets, the Roseanne actress has been the target of public backlash on more more than one occasions.
Scroll though to see all of Barr's biggest controversies.
National Anthem Incident
One of Barr's first controversial moments is still held against her to this day.
Barr was invited to sing the "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the baseball game between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Diego Padres on July 25, 1990.
She gave a humorously bad rendition of the national anthem, with her yelling loudly and going widely off-pitch. Afterwards, she grabbed her crotch and spit on the field, to mimic the actions of a baseball player.
However, many saw her bad performance as disrespectful and the actions afterwards as blatant disrespect to the U.S., as opposed to a baseball impression. Among the offended was President George H.W. Bush, who called the display disgraceful.prevnext
Retracted Incest Claims
In 1991, Barr accused both of her parents of sexual abusing during a live performance. Barr's family denied the claims at the time. In 2001, Bar retracted the accusations on The Oprah Winfrey Show, as Access reports.
"I think it's the worst thing I've ever done," Barr said. "It's the biggest mistake that I've ever made."
Oprah clarified, "Calling it incest? Or going public?"
Bar replied, "Well, both of those things. I think what happened was that — well, I know what happened was that I was in a very unhappy relationship. I was prescribed numerous psychiatric drugs. Incredible mixtures of psychiatric drugs to deal with the fact that I had, and still in some ways, have and always will have some mental illness. And the drugs and the combination of drugs that I was given, which were some strong, strong drugs, I totally lost touch with reality in a big, big way."prevnext
Hitler Photo Shoot
Barr posed as Adolf Hitler in a controversial photo shoot that was meant to parody the Nazi leader.
The photos, which were featured in Jewish Publication Heeb Magazine, show the comic star baking cookies while in Nazi garb and a mustache similar to Hitler's.
As PEOPLE reports, Barr explained on The Green Room with Paul Provenza that the photoshoot was meant to point out that numerous other tragedies like the Holocaust have occurred too often in recent decades.
"There's another, deeper layer to it. You know just the everyday. Moving off this Holocaust," Barr said. "There's been about 50 of them since then. That's what I'm kind of trying to say. Is like, Jesus Christ it's so f— every day now, holocausts, it's like baking cookies."
The photos resurfaced in 2018, causing another small controversy.prevnext
George Zimmerman Attacks
Barr was a vocal critic of George Zimmerman, the man who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012. However, some say she went to far when she retweeted a tweet that contained the address of Zimmerman's parents.
"If Zimmerman isn't arrested I'll [retweet] his address again — maybe go [to] his house myself," Barr tweeted afterwards.
The tweets have since been deleted from Barr's account.prevnext

But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018
Just before making the remark that ended Roseanne, Barr also took aim at Chelsea Clinton. She alleged that the former First Daughter was married to George Soros's nephew, saying her name was Chelsea Soros Clinton. Soros is a regular target of Barr and other conspiracy theorists, who claim he is a Nazi who wants to overthrow the U.S. government.
Clinton quickly corrected Barr, who have a response of her own in return.
"Good morning Roseanne - my given middle name is Victoria," Clinton wrote. "I imagine George Soros' nephews are lovely people. I'm just not married to one. I am grateful for the important work Open Society does in the world. Have a great day!"
