Roseanne Barr, following her apology for comparing Valerie Jarrett to “Planet Of The Apes” and “The Muslim Brotherhood,” re-tweeted a tweet from one of her fans. As the world knows, Roseanne lost her show last week following her controversial remarks, as ABC executives quickly gave it the ax, within near minutes of the tweet.
After she realized what she had done, Roseanne apologized and asked for her fans not to defend her. However, today, one of her fans and followers wrote a message which you can see in an Instagram post below.
Roseanne re-tweeted the message, prompting more of her critics to claim that she hasn’t really learned anything. However, the tweet doesn’t appear to be racist, it’s merely accusing Jarett of anti-Semitism as well as accusing Barr’s critics of bias.
News|Entertainment|North America|USA . Damn Roseanne! Back at it again with the tweets!Or is it the retweets? • Roseanne Barr stated just days ago on Twitter that she was “making restitution for the pain I’ve caused”. • Change seemed at least feasible right before Barr appeared to return to her pattern, retweeting a user’s reply to the previously quoted tweet saying : 'You didn't cause any pain. Those people always hated you. Valerie Jarrett wants Israelis and Jews chased into the sea, and she'll celebrate' • Another shade thrown to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. • • • #toomuchstory#news#media#people#newsataglance#northamerica#usa#abc#roseanne#sitcom#roseannebarr#wandasykes #saragilbert#johngoodman#lauriemetcalf#michaelfishman#comedy#entertainment#sitcoms#tvshows
Just a few moments before she retweeted her followers’ defense of her, she sent out a tweet which said, “I’m making restitution for the pain that I’ve caused.”
Even though Roseanne said she would quit using social media after she lost her job, the actress continued to tweet her thoughts on ABC’s choice to fire her.
I'm making restitution for the pain I have caused.

And according to the Daily Mail, this isn’t the first time that Roseanne has retweeted a potentially controversial remark from one of her 900,000 followers.
Nevertheless, some of Roseanne’s followers have claimed that the cancelation of her show had more to do with Channing Dungey than anybody else.
In case you didn’t know, Dungey is the first African-American woman to ever work as a CEO for ABC. After she caught wind of the Roseanne alum’s tweet, she wrote that Barr’s “Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values.”
Moreover, Barr came under fire for insinuating that Ambien was the reason for her actions. Roseanne said that, when she posted the tweet that cost her the show, she was on Ambien. In response, Ambien makers said that their medication doesn’t induce racism as a side-effect.
