Roseanne Barr’s apes tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was always about anti-semitism, not racism, the fired star and producer said in another tweet Wednesday night. 

“Rod Serling wrote Planet of the Apes. It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want,” Barr tweeted. 

Barr has continued to insist she is not racist and says her tweet that Jarrett would be the result of if the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby" was not a comment about Jarrett’s race.

The star also tweeted she is "fine" since the cancellation of her "Roseanne" revival as a result of her tweet. She has been using her time after being fired to reflect and watch a new Malcolm X documentary directed by her former 2012 presidential campaign manager Thomas Muhammed.

Barr also said she has been “planting trees” and that she would “begin to speak for myself in media soon” and was sleeping a lot without Ambien. (She previously blamed the Jarrett tweet on Ambien.) 

There has been talk about bringing back "Roseanne" without the title character, and Barr even said she is considering giving up her stake in the show’s profits so that her co-stars can get their jobs back.
