Roseanne Barr is still not over Roseanne getting canceled. After first blaming Ambien and then her pro-Trump views for ABC’s decision to ax her hit series, the comedian now says she was fired due to anti-Semitism.

“I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is anti-Semitism,” Barr told the Jerusalem Post in a phone interview from Hawaii on Thursday. “I think it played a part — the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant — and what I meant was a commentary on Iran — so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn’t let me explain.”

Barr continued, “And in haste they did something unprecedented that they’ve never done to any other artist. And at the base of that I think it’s because I am the most vocal person about Israel and BDS [the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement].”
