Roseanne Barr, who offered a bit of comedic advice to Michelle Wolf, said the organizers of the White House Correspondent’s Dinner were using “women to attack and bully women.”

Barr, in a series of tweets, advised Wolf on the three rules for comedic performances:

“First rule of comedy: NEVER target someone more famous than U who is in the audience,” Barr wrote. “U will lose the entire crowd.”

“Second rule of comedy: comedy comes from LOVE, not from HATE! If u feel hate, you won’t get laughs,” Barr added.

“Third rule of comedy: the comic has to be the ‘asshole’ not the audience,’” Barr wrote.

Barr added: “Note: these rules of comedy r my own-learned from bombing 10k times.”

White House Correspondents Association president Margaret Talev said of Wolf’s routine: “Comedy is meant to be provocative. My interest overwhelmingly was in unifying the country, and I understand that we may have fallen a little bit short on that goal.”
