Roseanne Tries To Do Spin Control On Tweets
Roseanne Barr, star of the sitcom Roseanne, got into some major hot water when she published racist tweets about Valerie Jarrett, former aide to Obama. The show was canceled, and even before the cancellation, was under intense scrutiny from liberal America for featuring pro-Trump characters.
Roseanne claims that the scandal led to health complications. Yesterday, she used her social media to plead that she is not a racist. She also had positive words for Kanye West, one of the most prominent celebrities to endorse Trump.
She tweeted, “1) 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.. Needless2 say I’m NOT what people have accused me of! I’ve never practiced ‘RACISM’ in my entire life & never will. Meantime…”
She also tried to provide context for the offending tweet, though it may not have helped.
“Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.”
Barr also expounded upon the health issues she has allegedly faced in the wake of the show’s cancellation.
“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,”
In addition to the Jarrett tweet, Roseanne also got in trouble for tweeting that George Soros was a Nazi. She had an apology for him as well.
“I apologize sincerely to @georgesoros. His family was persecuted by The Nazis & survived The Holocaust only because of the strength & resourcefulness of his father.”
