The tweet that directly led to her successful ABC sitcom’s cancellation was all a big misunderstanding, Roseanne Barr claimed in a recent statement.
As Scope News previously reported, controversy over Barr’s controversial tweeting came to a head after she compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”
Though it was widely interpreted as a disgusting and racist dig at the Democrat from a vociferous Trump supporter, Barr now claims she did not know Jarrett was black when she wrote the offensive tweet.
“I thought the b**** was white!” she said. “F***!”
