Roseanne Barr Leaves Twitter After Attacking Obama Adviser With ‘Racist’ Ape Tweet


Roseanne Barr Leaves Twitter After Attacking Obama Adviser With ‘Racist’ Ape Tweet

“Roseanne” star Roseanne Barr, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, is facing intense backlash after the ABC star attacked former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett with a racist tweet calling her the “baby” of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”

In the tweet, Barr attacked Jarett, who was born in Iran, as the offspring of the Islamist organization “Muslim brotherhood” and the movie “planet of the apes.”

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr wrote, using Jarrett’s initials and responding to a tweet accusing the former Obama adviser of helping “hide” misdeeds for the Obama administration.

Jarrett also served as the assistant to the president for public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, and a co-chair of the Obama–Biden Transition Project. Before serving in the Obama White House, Jarrett was a CEO, the chairwoman of the Chicago Stock Exchange and the chairwoman of the board of the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Barr’s racist tweet drew widespread condemnation online:

Barr also sent out a number of other tweets Tuesday morning, attacking billionaire George Soros and Chelsea Clinton, whom the comedian linked to a right-wing conspiracy accusing Soros of trying to orchestrate “the overthrow of us constitutional republic.”

“Soros’ goal; the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore US law & favor ‘feelings’ instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that ‘racist,’” Barr tweeted.

“Chelsea Soros Clinton,” she wrote in an earlier tweet.

Roseanne Barr later apologized for the racially charged tweet, calling it a “bad joke” and vowed to leave Twitter.
