Roseanne Barr Says She Forgives ‘Everyone Who Hurt Me’

The former “Roseanne” star says she wants “the best for everyone”

Good news, Roseanne Barr haters — you are forgiven. Now go forth and sin no more.

Barr — whose hit ABC sitcom “Roseanne” was canceled earlier this year after she tweeted an offensive message about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett — took to Twitter on Friday that she has forgiven “everyone who hurt me.”

Barr added that she wants “the best for everyone,” as well as an end to racism, anti-semitism and classism.

“I forgive everyone who hurt me. I forgive as fast as I can everyday,” Barr wrote. “That is why I am able to live free. I want the best for everyone-I want no more racism or anti semitism or classism. I want peace! Let’s all move on & help FREEDOM!”

Barr sparked outrage in late May when she suggested on Twitter that Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Planet of the Apes.” She apologized, saying that the comment was a “joke” that was “in bad taste,” but the apology was not enough to save the “Roseanne” revival, which had been renewed for a second season after scoring impressive ratings.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap at the time of the cancellation.

On Wednesday, Barr tweeted that she’s Barr says she’s “developed a bit of palsy” in her head and hands over the stress she’s been living through, referring to the cancellation of ABC’s “Roseanne” revival and the very public fallout from her tweet about Jarrett.

“I have developed a bit of palsy in my head and hands due to the stress I have lived thru,” she wrote late Wednesday night on Twitter.

She also said that the Jarrett tweet had been misunderstood.

“Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes,” she tweeted. “It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to-the anti semitism of the Iran deal.”
