UPDATE Roseanne Barr Leaves Twitter, Apologizes After Going on Racist Twitter Attack Against Obama Aide Valerie Jarrett

Share

Roseanne Barr can’t shock much more, but this morning she may have gone over the line.

In a series of racist, right wing rants on Twitter she attacked Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, Chelsea Clinton, and George Soros.

The worse of the Tweets concerned Jarrett, who is African American. Barr wrote:

 

The Tweet came from her authorized account on Twitter, although now it cannot be found. Regardless, this certainly seems to be authored by Barr. So that would raise questions to ABC, to Carsey Werner Productions, to her cast, crew and production staff. The Tweet is clearly repulsive, reprehensible and grounds for cancellation of her show.

In Barr’s other set of Tweets, she attacked Chelsea Clinton for being married to someone related to George Soros. Clinton responded by saying her middle name was “Victoria.” Roseanne responded by apologizing, and inaccurately posting:
CORRECTION: CHELSEA CLINTON IS NOT MARRIED TO A SOROS NEPHEW. HER HUSBAND IS THE SON OF A CORRUPT SENATOR, SO SORRY!:

In fact, Marc Mezvinsky’s father was a congressman who pleaded guilty to fraud charges.

The fact is, Roseanne is a fraud. And ABC will have to address this. Soon.
