Roseanne Barr says her show was canceled because she was ‘defending Israel’

Roseanne Barr insists that her defense of Israel — and not a racist tweet — is what ended the run of the Roseanne reboot.

“I was BDSed by ABC,” Barr reportedly said at a Monday event in Tel Aviv, referring to a Palestinian movement to boycott, divest and sanction Israel. “I feel like I’ve apologized to people who didn’t understand my tweet, people who were too [expletive] stupid. I went on Twitter for the express purpose of defending Israel.”

When ABC canceled the highly rated sitcom on May 29, 2018, the network cited a tweet Barr had sent, in which she said former President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was the product of Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood. At the time, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.” The network declined to respond to Barr’s new statements.
