Roseanne Barr Apologizes Twice for Racial Joke Against Valerie Jarrett

Chelsea Clinton responded with positivity and kindness to Roseanne Barr's latest conspiracy-theory-fueled Twitter tirade on Tuesday morning, after the star of ABC's "Roseanne" falsely claimed she was married to the nephew of billionaire philanthropist George Soros.

Barr took to Twitter to apologize for the smear saying, "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans". And she's under fire again for a racist comment she made on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. She then responded to a comment on her own tweet to tout the debunked Soros theory, which was created by former "Charles in Charge" star Scott Baio in 2016. Soon after she tweeted that she is leaving the social media network. "Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste", Barr wrote on Twitter, later adding, "I am now leaving Twitter". About five minutes later she expanded on her apology.

Barr recently finished the first season of her rebooted sitcom, which ranked as one of the most-watched shows of the TV season. I'm just not married to one.

"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj", Barr, 65, wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Tuesday, May 29. "Have a great day!"

Barr also falsely said Chelsea Clinton was married to the nephew of liberal donor George Soros, claiming that Soros seeks "the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore USA law & favor "feelings" instead" and will call anyone "who is alarmed by that "racist". The show was renewed for a second season shortly after it premiered to huge ratings in March. Barr tweeted at the time.
