The former sitcom star now concedes a billionaire philanthropist’s family “was persecuted by the Nazis,” not the other way around.
Roseanne Barr is offering up another apology in wake of her ABC sitcom being cancelled over a racist tweet, this time for calling billionaire philanthropist George Soros a Nazi.
She had previously doubled down on the statement when apologizing to Chelsea Clinton for saying she was married to Soros’ nephew (which is not true). Barr apologized for that mistake, but added, "By the way, George Soros is a Nazi who turned in his fellow Jews to be murdered in German concentration camps and stole their wealth; were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?"
Now, she’s offered a second apology, along with a clarifying link to The Open Society Foundation’s page covering George Soros’ story.
"I apologize sincerely to George Soros," she tweeted. "His family was persecuted by the Nazis and survived the Holocaust only because of the strength and resourcefulness of his father."
It was Barr’s first tweet since June 5. ABC is reportedly considering a spinoff or continuation of their former top-rated series without its star. Soros has not yet responded as of this article’s publication.
