Claiming that she has been using her time to reflect on what she had tweeted, Barr still insists she did not mean to be racist.

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.

Then Barr claimed that the film “The Planet of the Apes” was actually about anti-Semitism, and that her original tweet was apparently about the Iran nuclear deal being anti-Semitic.

After retweeting some supportive fans, Barr said her “faith is stronger” now and said she had developed palsy in her head and hands because of the stress.
