Roseanne Barr has tried to suggest her notorious tweet was actually about anti-Semitism. Good luck with that.
Her original tweet which likened former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to a character from Planet of the Apes was:
“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”
That was enough to get her show axed.
Yesterday she tweeted:
Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.

She previously tried to blame it all on a side-effect of her Ambien medication, but the company quickly hit back.
People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.
