Roseanne Barr blames anti-Semitism for her ABC ouster
“I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is anti-Semitism,” the former Roseanne star told The Jerusalem Post. “I think it played a part — the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant — and what I meant was a commentary on Iran — so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn’t let me explain. And in haste they did something unprecedented that they’ve never done to any other artist." Barr said she thinks being the most pro-Israel person led to her ouster.
