Roseanne Barr Offers A New Message To Valerie Jarrett, Says She’s Not Against Her Personally

Roseanne Barr has been staying out of the public eye since she was fired from the hit reboot bearing her name, but the former “Roseanne” star has been speaking out regularly in the podcast of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

In her third appearance on the podcast, Barr’s rambling 55-minute conversation with the Orthodox rabbi — who once served as spiritual adviser to Michael Jackson — touches on everything from Jewish history to Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. At one point, however, Barr discusses what she has come to learn about how she should have approached the controversial tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

“My sister helped me because she’s a Torah student, too, and she helped me to say the work of your hands… makes me feel threatened. I shouldn’t have said, you know, like what you said — don’t make it personal,” she says of tweeting that Jarrett looked like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

Barr clarifies that she’s not against Jarrett on a personal basis — just the positions that she stands for. “But you kind of have to when it’s, like, the work of your hand is what I’m against — not you personally — but the work of your hands,” she continued.

Barr was notoriously fired from “Roseanne” after issuing the tweet, with the show cancelled and then revived for next season as a spinoff tentatively titled “The Conners”, which will have zero involvement from Barr.

In a previous conversation with Boteach, Barr revealed that she’s mulling over offers to return to the small screen.

“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen,” she explained, “and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see.”
