Roseanne Barr retweets adverse Valerie Jarrett comment

Roseanne Barr retweeted a negative comment about the former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, shortly after vowing that she was prepared to make amends for ” the pain that I’ve caused you.’

Roseanne Barr has taken the time to reflect for her recent actions, which they said have led to health problems. The 65-year-old took to social media on Wednesday to insist that they are not racist and to praise Kanye West for the support of Trump.

Barr took to Twitter to share her feelings about life after her TV show was cancelled because of a racist tweet she wrote about the former President Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

“1) I want you all2 know, I’m fine. I use it all the time 2 reflect &2 to gain insight on what I said and how it was misunderstood..” Barr tweeted on Wednesday. “Needless2 say I don’T know what people have accused me of! I have never practiced ” RACISM in my entire life and never will. In the meantime…”

But after tweeting several messages trying to prove that they are not racist, the actress went on to defend her earlier statement about Jarrett.

2) I’ve been watching this new doc called “Malcolm X: An overwhelming Influence on the Black Power Movement.” Directed by my dear friend Thomas Muhammad (my campaign manager in 2012), who called me immediately when my show was cancelled. https://t.co/honkeu54wl

“Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet meant-the anti-semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think what they want.”

After sharing her controversial tweet about Jarrett back in May, the actress blamed her behavior on her use of Ambien.

Barr claimed on Wednesday that her recent firing has a negative impact on her health.

“I have a bit of paralysis in my head and hands through the stress I have lived through-the-I sleep a lot now-without the ambien also, thank G0D!! goodnight-we are winning! don’t give up! PEACE comes,” she wrote.

In addition to sharing her love for a new Malcolm X documentary, Barr praised Kanye West, who recently received backlash for expressing his support for President Trump.

“MUCH LOVE 2 YOU-thank you for the help and pray for me! It worked! Listen to @kanyewest new album about mental illness, it is the greatest thing ever,” she tweeted.

Barr’s most recent Twitter rant comes just a few days after the actress apologized to the billionaire George Soros, for him a Nazi in a tweet that has since been removed.

“I apologize sincerely to @georgesoros,” she said in her tweet. “His family was persecuted by The Nazis and survived The Holocaust only because of the strength and ingenuity of his father.”
