Roseanne Barr Claims Racist Tweet ‘Was About Anti-Semitism’

Roseanne Barr tried to avoid wasting face in a collection of tweets about her current headline-making racist put up, which led to the cancellation of the Roseanne reboot.

“I want u all2 know I’m fine. I’ve been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood,” the actress, 65, tweeted on Wednesday, June 13. “Needless2 say I’m NOT what people have accused me of! I’ve never practiced ‘RACISM’ in my entire life & never will.”

Barr then claimed that her broadly denounced May 29 tweet, wherein she referred to as former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett the kid of “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes,” was her try at condemning anti-Semitism.

Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism,” she wrote, referencing the Twilight Zone creator who wrote the script for the 1968 sci-fi film. “That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal [from which President Donald Trump withdrew in May]. Low IQ ppl can suppose no matter they need.”

The comic teased that she “will begin to speak for myself in media soon.” But for now, she has been busy “planting trees digging in the earth singing and feeling a great deal of relief.”

She continued, “My faith is stronger today than ever before. I have faith in the American people to free their minds & unite. I have developed a bit of palsy in my head and hands due to the stress I have lived thru-I sleep alot now-without ambien too, thank G0D!! goodnight-we are winning! don’t give up! PEACE is coming!”

As beforehand reported, ABC pulled the plug on Roseanne, which premiered to essential acclaim in March, just some hours after Barr posted her racist tweet.
