Roseanne Barr apologizes for tweet on Valerie Jarrett.

"It was about anti-semitism". That is what my tweet referred to - the anti semitism of the Iran deal.

ABC swiftly canceled Barr's hit show "Roseanne" and slammed the comedienne's comments as "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". "By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that?" she wrote at the time.

Alexander Soros said her lie was "odious", and wrote that his father, who was 13 when he was taken in by a Hungarian official, "did not collaborate with the Nazis.Roseanne Barr's claims are not just an insult to my father, but [to] all those who endured the Holocaust". "I think that everyone is just so desperate to preserve the legacy of a show that touched so many people with such incredible actors ... everyone's trying to stop the bleeding and stop all the damage that has been done".

United States comedian Barr came under fire when she compared former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to the lovechild of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes".

She has apologized to Jarrett and to Soros, blaming her unhinged tweets on the sleep drug Ambien. "I've never practiced "RACISM" in my entire life & never will", Barr wrote.

The Prime Minister seems to have averted disaster for her government this week - but maybe only this week. Anna Soubry tweeted: 'If the PM goes back on that there will be no agreed amendment that I can support'.


In addition to claiming she's not racist, Barr thanked Fox News' Sean Hannity for supporting her.

On her encounter with Rosanne Barr: I don't know if you know El Segundo, but if you're black and you're driving through El Segundo, you're going to get pulled over.

"Thomas Muhammad has agreed to speak for me, as he knows the work I have done in civil rights against racism ALL MY LIFE & understands my tweet was about Iran's regime, not race -The website is: http://www.bbunity.com", she tweeted.

She then concluded with a shout-out to Kanye West which she called the "the greatest thing ever".

Barr won the Emmy for best actress in a comedy in 1993 during the initial run of "Roseanne", which was rebooted in March after more than 20 seasons off the air.

"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!" She also received nominations in the same category in 1992, 1994 and 1995.
