Roseanne Barr Claims She's 'Making Restitution' — Before Posting Another Valerie Jarrett Attack
Roseanne Barr retweeted multiple controversial posts on Tuesday, including one tweet alleging "Valerie Jarrett wants Israelis and Jews chased into the sea"
On Tuesday afternoon, Barr, 65, posted a cryptic tweet promising to make amends for the controversy that erupted last week after she likened former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an “ape” in a since-deleted tweet.
“I’m making restitution for the pain I have caused,” she wrote.
But the rest of Barr’s social media activity seems to indicate otherwise. She retweeted multiple controversial posts on Tuesday, including one tweet that read: “@therealrosanne You didn’t cause any pain. Those people always hated you. Valerie Jarrett wants Israelis and Jews chased into the sea, and she’ll celebrate.” (Barr is Jewish.)

Another Twitter user argued that Barr’s tweet “wasn’t bullying.”
“Do you not know what VJ has done?” wrote the user, referencing Jarrett. “Her tweet is nothing in comparison. And her tweet wasn’t bullying.”
In response, Barr tweeted: “They know not.”

After deleting her initial tweet about Jarrett last week, Barr issued an apology.
“@ValerieJarrett I want to apologize to you,” she tweeted at the time. “I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!”
Hours later, she apologized again.
“@ValerieJarrett I don’t know if u saw it, but I wanted 2 apologize to u 4 hurting and upsetting u with an insensitive & tasteless tweet,” she said. “I am truly sorry — my whole life has been about fighting racism. I made a terrible mistake [that] caused hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs. So sorry!”
Jarrett later weighed in on Barr’s shocking language during MSNBC town hall called “Everyday Racism in America.”
“I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment,” she said. “I’m fine. I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friends and followers coming to their defense.”
