Roseanne Barr tweeted Tuesday night that she was “saddened” and “shocked” that people who knew her accused her of “being a racist” to score “political points.”

“I was saddened [and] shocked that [people] who knew me [for] years accused me of being a racist [for] political points,” the 65-year-old comedian tweeted. “I oppose corrupt regimes which throw gays off buidlings [and] execute rape victims. I oppose BHO [Barack Obama]-VJ’s [Valerie Jarrett’s] pro #R2P [Responsibility to Protect] [and] their Iran deal.”

“I’ve corrected my mistake-which was to speak against an immoral regime-Iran, which throws gays off buildings [and] executes rape victims, which Valerie Jarrett empowered, in an unclear manner,” she added in a second post. “The jobs of my diverse crew [are] safe now.”

However, she never explained what she meant by her diverse crew being safe.

“Roseanne” was canceled over the actress’ comment about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. Barr’s original tweet read, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

She apologized for the racist tweet and has since vowed to “make restitution for the pain she caused.”
