Roseanne Barr quits Twitter after offending with statements about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, Chelsea Clinton
Roseanne Barr went into emergency damage-control mode after sending out a politically charged tweet linking Chelsea Clinton to liberal donor George Soros and a racially charged tweet saying former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, is like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”
The latter led to an almost immediate mea culpa, and a vow to never tweet again.
I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter.
