Refresh for updates Roseanne Barr says the tweet that got her sitcom Roseanne canceled - the one likening former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to a Planet of the Apes character - was not only not racist, but was a condemnation of anti-semitism.
Barr's claim is a stretch at best, and is probably more accurately characterized as a lie.
U.S. comedian Barr came under fire when she compared former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to the lovechild of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes".
Roseanne Barr has taken the time to reflect for her recent actions, which she said have led to health issues.
Her full tweetstorm is below.
She then shared the link to a documentary on the black civil rights leader Malcolm X that a friend of hers sent her after "Roseanne" was cancelled.
She continued: "Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes".
After sharing her controversial tweet about Jarrett back in May, the actress blamed her behavior on her use of ambien. Needless2 say I'm NOT what people have accused me of!
"I have developed a bit of palsy in my head and hands due to the stress I have lived thru-I sleep alot now-without ambien too, thank G0D! goodnight-we are winning! don't give up!"
In a now deleted tweet, she also plugged fellow Donald Trump supporter Kanye West's new album, "Ye", calling it "the greatest thing ever".
In a flurry of disjointed tweets, Barr also spoke about her future plans, telling fans, "I will begin to speak for myself in media soon".
She added: "guys, I have been planting trees digging in the earth singing and feeling a great deal of relief".
