Roseanne Barr thinks it’s time to “move past” the controversy surrounding her tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

The 65-year-old actress had her eponymous sitcom cancelled by ABC earlier this year after she likened the political adviser to an ape, but Roseanne has insisted she didn’t mean it as a racial slur and she now wants to draw a line under the incident.

During a soon-to-air interview with Dr. Oz, he told Roseanne: “Some of the messages that connect the dots of racism are subtle. You said the word ‘ape’, in modern America.”

The veteran star then tried to clarify her comments, insisting she didn’t intend to cause such offence.

She said, according to the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column: “No, I said, ‘Planet of the Apes’, that’s a movie … No, I know what you’re doing and everyone else does it … I said, ‘Planet of the Apes’, which is a science-fiction movie about the overthrow of evil overlords, such as Iran. And I have apologised for this…

“I thought Valerie Jarrett was an Iranian woman, like a lot of people. I didn’t understand that she was an African-American woman. When I saw her on TV and she was doing her DNA test, and she’s also 46 percent European so let’s just move past it.”
