via Roseanne returns to Twitter hours after quitting Twitter over a racist tweet that got her sitcom canceled – AOL Entertainment

Hours after comedian Roseanne Barr apologized for a racist tweet in which she likened a former adviser of President Barack Obama to an ape on Tuesday, Barr returned to Twitter to share more controversial comments.

Barr’s tweets stoked controversy after she said Valerie Jarrett, a black woman born in Iran, looked like a combination of the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.”

Barr’s derogatory remarks were widely criticized and prompted ABC to cancel her eponymous hit show. On Tuesday afternoon, Barr apologized for the tweet and said she was “leaving Twitter.”
