Roseanne Apologizes For Racist Tweet, Says She Is Leaving Twitter

Jarrett served as Obama's senior advisor in the role of Assistant to the President for Public Liaison from January 2009-2017. After multiple people called her racist for her reference to Planet of the Apes, Barr responded, "Muslims r NOT a race". If the H&M controversy taught us anything, it's that white people still don't understand how racist and dehumanizing those kinds of statements are.

Barr, an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump, later tweeted her first tweet was "a joke". Jarrett hasn't responded to the incident, and neither has ABC.

Social media immediately lit up with criticism of both Barr and ABC, with some demanding a response from the broadcast network.

Clinton is actually married to Marc Mezvinsky, who is not related to Soros.

Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me! According to the fact-checking website, Snopes, that claim is "false". 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? "I'm just not married to one", she wrote. But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?

Update (10:50am ET): Roseanne Barr issed the following apology in reaction to a joke she made referring to Valerie Jarrett as a mix between the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes".

An hour later, she followed up with, "soros" goal; the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore U.S. law & favor "feelings" instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that "racist'".
