Barr, an ardent supporter of the Republicans, had to Twitter out to the African-American Valerie Jarrett, once advisor to the former American president, Barack Obama, and its ‘a baby of the muslim brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes’.
Then blotted out Barr the tweet and apologized. “I am truly sorry that I have a bad joke about her politics and her appearance have written. I should have known better. Forgive me, my joke was of bad taste.’

Roseanne actress Sara Gilbert took over the Twitter away from Barr. “It is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, because we have a show made in which we believed, and proud, and of which the viewers love, a show that is different than the opinion and words of a member of the cast.’
