Updated: Tuesday, May 29, 2018, 10:42 a.m. EDT: Of course Roseanne Barr issued an apology after yet another show of her racist slip, and wanted people to know that it was just a joke, just like the status of her career.
Roseanne Barr took time off from attacking Barack Obama on Twitter and took aim at his former adviser Valerie Jarrett. In a reply to a story that the former president’s CIA spied on the French president, Barr wrote that Jarrett was the result if the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
It’s always great when a white person describes a black person as an ape or a monkey. Let’s also not forget that Jarrett isn’t part of the Muslim Brotherhood and never had plans to force Islam on Americans, as so many conspiracy theorists like Barr have touted.
But, sure, we can all rest easy knowing that ABC will continue to promote Barr’s TV sitcom, even though the chick is one fry short of a Happy Meal and has no problem spreading her racist rhetoric.
