Roseanne Barr Apologizes For Racist 'Planet of the Apes' Tweet About Obama Adviser

  Roseanne Barr Apologizes For Racist 'Planet of the Apes' Tweet About Obama Adviser When users pointed out that the tweet seemed racist, Barr replied, "Muslims r NOT a race."Roseanne Barr on Tuesday attacked former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarett in a since deleted tweet alleging connections to the Muslim Brotherhood that is being called racist by many.

Actor Tom Arnold is mincing no words when it comes to his ex-wife Roseanne Barr and the inflammatory tweet that resulted in the cancellation last week of her eponymous ABC sitcom.

Barr is “obviously” a racist, Arnold said in an interview with “Good Morning Britain” on Monday, adding the actress really “needs to get off Twitter.”

“You’ve got to get her phone away from her,” he said.

ABC pulled the plug on the hit “Roseanne” revival last Tuesday, hours after Barr published a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama. Barr has since apologized several times for the derogatory comment, while also blaming the sleep drug Ambien and retweeting conspiracy theories and new attacks on Jarrett.

Barr, 65, has also claimed she did not know Jarrett was black.

Arnold told “Good Morning Britain” that he was not surprised by Barr’s offensive tweet.

“I have to say, I saw it coming. I warned everybody,” said the 59-year-old actor, who was married to Barr for four rocky years. Arnold was also a writer and actor on the original “Roseanne” show before Barr fired him in 1994, the same year the couple got divorced. 

When asked on Monday whether he thought Barr was a racist, Arnold responded: “Er, yeah, obviously.”

“I base that on the last six months of her tweeting and social media,” he continued, pointing out her support of President Donald Trump, whom Arnold described as also a “racist,” and her touting of conspiracy theories about Democrats.

Arnold told CNN last week that he believes mental health issues had played a “part” in the recent controversy involving Barr, who has spoken publicly in the past about her struggles with dissociative identity disorder, formerly known as multiple personality disorder. Arnold discussed this topic again with the British talk show.

“She had the multiple personality disorder, she was honest and courageous about that,” he said of Barr. “I don’t know exactly what’s going on. I know there is mental illness issues.”
