Roseanne Barr was a favorite target at the MTV awards show Monday as celebrities took shots at the actress.

Last month Barr came under fire when she tweeted a racially charged comment at former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, which ultimately led to the cancellation of her successful reboot of "Roseanne."

Since then she has been on and off social media, commenting about the controversy and making headlines each time.

However, news on the "Roseanne" front has been relatively quiet — until the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The show, which was taped Saturday and aired Monday, celebrates the best in cinema and music, but it was Barr who stole the attention as celebrities made jabs at her during the ceremony.

"Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordan, who took home the award for Best Villain, feigned shock at receiving the award, stating that Barr deserved it instead, Entertainment Tonight reported.

"I am shocked that I won this award for Best Villain. I thought for sure Roseanne had that in the bag," he said.

Jordan's costar, Chadwick Boseman, also received an award for Best Hero and, while presenting him the award, Olivia Munn and Zazie Beetz threw shade at Barr.

"We also want to give a shout-out to our real heroes," Munn said, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The two then called out first responders as examples of real-life heroes before quipping in an unaired moment, "and to that guy who fired Roseanne. That was nice."
