Roseanne Barr is still pointing the finger at everyone else besides herself. Yes, the disgraced comedian and actress did fer an apology for making racist comments about former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett. Still, Roseanne’s initial statements, comparing the Obama-era advisor to an ape mixed with a Muslim, got her show canceled and has derailed her career for the time being. Roseanne tweeted then deleted an apology, but subsequently went on several public rants. The veteran comedian seemed to be suffering from mental health issues after she freaked out during an interview and yelled, “I thought the bitch was white!”
Roseanne last appeared on Fox’s Hannity program, where she pandered to the Right-leaning audience with a defiant cry “I’m so sorry that you thought I was racist.” Now, Roseanne has stopped by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach podcast once more to speak about her controversial and career halting tweet. She blamed the Left for weaponizing her apology, which sounds like a theory that Hannity wrote. “My friends told me at the beginning, ‘Oh my god, you made a fatal mistake, and that is you apologized to the left and once you apologize they never forgive, they just try to beat you down until you don’t exist,'” Roseanne stated.
“I should never have said I’m sorry in their world,” she continued. “In my world, I had to because I was sorry. For crying out loud, I was sorry. People were so angry and, I have to say, a little bit ill-informed about me that they would put me in the same box where they have people who call for the death all Jews and want to enslave all black people — real racists that actually exist. They put me in this box with them, and how do they think that’s going to affect me? They don’t, and they’re under mind control.” She also revealed that she plans on leaving the country.
“I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers,” Roseanne said. “I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go…and study with any rabbi that I can ask to teach me, and it’s my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman.”
