Roseanne Barr Claims Planet of the Apes Tweet Was About Anti-Semitism

In her latest tweetstorm, Barr also sought to assure supporters that she is doing "fine".

Just weeks after her show was canceled following a racist tweet aimed at Valerie Jarrett - in which compared the former Obama adviser to "Planet of the Apes" - Roseanne continued to defend herself.

Now the 65-year-old actress has said that her comment about Jarrett actually referred to the Iran nuclear deal.

Roseanne Barr reemerged on social media to update her fans on her mental well-being and what the future may have in store for her. "I've been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood", Barr said.

Before the message in support of West, Barr once again insisted she was not a racist and claimed her comments had been "misunderstood", also saying she had been watching a documentary about civil rights activist Malcolm X. "I have faith in the American people to free their minds & unite". "Low IQ ppl (people) can think whatever they want". Barr has not previously mentioned the anti-semitism angle. I've never practiced "RACISM" in my entire life & never will.
