Roseanne Barr says she’s done with social media … just hours after she fired off a racially charged tweet at a former adviser to President Obama.

Roseanne’s random tweet late Monday night said, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” She was responding to a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, an African-American woman who was one of Obama’s closest advisers while in the White House.

Early Tuesday, Roseanne deleted the tweet about Valerie … and said she was “truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.” She also claimed she was “leaving Twitter.”

Her politics have been front and center since the reboot of her show became a huge hit.

Not only does Roseanne’s character embrace President Trump, but he called her to congratulate on the huge ratings … and even took credit for them.
