The former “Roseanne” star, who was fired from her sitcom earlier this year after making racist comments about an American politician, has announced that she will be making a trip to Israel in January to address the country’s parliament.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Barr has said the visit is an opportunity to “further my own knowledge of Jewish and Israeli history,” adding that she will speak out against what she called “the insidious and anti-Semitic BDS movement.”

BDS is the activist movement for Palestinian rights and sovereignty calling for boycott, divestment, and sanctions against the state of Israel.
