Roseanne Barr has promised to make 'restitution for the pain' she has caused after her racist tweet scandal resulted in the cancellation of her show. 

After initially saying she was taking a break from Twitter, the disgraced TV star returned late Tuesday with the cryptic tweet.

'I'm making restitution for the pain I have caused,' Barr tweeted. 

It is not exactly clear what Barr is referring to and she did not elaborate in further tweets.

She had earlier posted: 'Deplatforming-read about it'.

The comedian has been widely condemned ever since she compared former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape on Twitter last month.

Following the fallout, Barr apologized for the tweet about Jarrett and to her colleagues but has repeatedly insisted she is not racist. 

She then retreated to Utah where she has been pictured in recent days looking disheveled. 

ABC swiftly canceled 'Roseanne' in the wake of the racist tweet scandal.

Barr served as a star and executive producer on the show, which was a ratings phenomenon when it returned to US television earlier this year for a 10th series, after its original run came to an end in May 1997.

Rumors of a possible spin-off show are now circulating with producers reportedly in talks about how to create a show without Barr's leading character.

One possible suggestion is a spin-off focusing on Barr's on-screen daughter Darlene, played by Sara Gilbert. 

Gilbert appeared on The Talk on Monday saying she was saddened about how 'Roseanne' ended, but still supported ABC's decision to cancel the program.

Gilbert, an executive producer on the rebooted series, said the show 'has always been about diversity, love and inclusion'.
