Roseanne Barr has returned to Twitter following the cancellation of her show earlier today.following her own racist Twitter rant.

Senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, is speaking out about racism after comedienne Roseanne Barr made racist comments about her on Twitter.

The American television network ABC described the star's tweet as abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with its values.

Barr tweeted that what she did was unforgivable and told fans "do not defend me". The idea here is that in bringing back her show, ABC wasn't endorsing Roseanne Barr's politics so much as amplifying them because a lot of people in America also harbor those politics.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys!" "I made a bad mistake wh (ich) cause hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs".

"I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but...i did.", she said. "I am now leaving Twitter". I went too far and do not want it defended.

The comedian Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer for the show, said in a brief tweet that she would "not be returning".

"I am hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed", Miss Kenney tweeted.


Barr also appeared to advocate for the firing of other prominent comedians who have made insensitive or offensive jokes about public officials, including Jimmy Kimmel, Joy Behar and Bill Maher, sharing with her 714,000 followers several boycott campaigns.

She got her start in Hollywood in the early 1990s, developing movie ideas at 20th Century Fox and then becoming a story editor for Steven Seagal's company, which was based at Warner Bros.

"I'm fine. I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defence", Ms Jarrett said.

Ms. Barr was resoundingly condemned on Tuesday, including from many who helped make her show successful.

The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist organisation and Planet of the Apes is a movie in which intelligent apes battle humans for control. I should have known better.

Roseanne Barr has embarked on a freakish Twitter tirade since her sitcom Roseanne was axed by ABC.

It was a quick decision at ABC for Dungey, who is the first African-American to serve as programming chief for one of the major broadcast networks, and her boss, network president Ben Sherwood. "Roseanne" co-star Sara Gilbert, via Twitter. A racist one. ABC made a choice.
