Continuing the latest surrounding the cancelation of ‘Roseanne’, the show’s star has now responded to claims of being a racist. Barr took to her Twitter today to shoot down anyone who felt she ever practiced racism. The claims come after a Tweet from Barr became viral yesterday when she compared former Obama advisor to a baby of ‘The Planet Of The Apes & The Muslim Brotherhood’. “I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER be taken from me,” she wrote on the page of her Twitter.
As mentioned in response to Barr’s tweet about Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, ABC has announced they’ve canceled her show. Roseanne has since shared she will look in fighting back. Take a look at her Tweet below.
