Roseanne Barr says she's 'never practiced racism' as she defends controversial tweet

Barr's claim is a stretch at best, and is probably more accurately characterized as a lie.

Roseanne Barr is doubling down that she is not a racist.

But Barr tweeted Wednesday that she was really tweeting about anti-Semitism.

Her full tweetstorm is below. "I have faith in the American people to free their minds & unite". "I've never practiced "RACISM" in my entire life & never will. Meantime..." Since then, Viacom has pulled old episodes of the show from distribution, and Barr was dropped by her agency, ICM Partners, among other backlash.

In a flurry of disjointed tweets, Barr also spoke about her future plans, telling fans, "I will begin to speak for myself in media soon". That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal.

Serling, creator of the "Twilight Zone", co-wrote the script for the original 1968 film, an adaptation of the 1963 novel by Pierre Boulle.

Barr stressed Muhammad was the right person to speak for her because he understood she was not a racist, claiming, "Thomas Muhammad has agreed to speak for me, as he knows the work I have done in civil rights against racism ALL MY LIFE & understands my tweet was about Iran's regime, not race".

She went on to write "2) I've been watching this new doc called "Malcolm X: An overwhelming Influence on th Black Power Movement". I see clearly now", she added about the past couple of weeks.

Sara Gilbert, who played Barr's daughter on the show, called the tweet, "abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew", and stood by ABC's decision to cancel the show. However, the star wrote, she has "developed a bit of palsy" due to stress over the incident.

She added: "guys, I have been planting trees digging in the earth singing and feeling a great deal of relief".
