Roseanne Barr, the American comedian whose television show was canceled last year after she made a racist remark on Twitter, visited Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday as part of a tour of Israel.
Barr arrived in Israel last week with celebrity U.S. rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
“There are no proper words for me to express the connection I feel, first of all to God, to Torah (Bible), to my people,” Barr, who is Jewish, told reporters.
In May, Barr posted a tweet comparing a black former Obama administration official to an ape, prompting Walt Disney Co’s ABC network to cancel her U.S. television comedy “Roseanne”. Barr subsequently said that what she did was “unforgivable.”
Roseanne should fit perfectly in Israel as that country is famous for their racism against the Palestinians and Ethiopians. In fact the wall that Donald Trump is trying to build, he got the idea from Israel. There are some that say that Israel is similar to apartheid South Africa.
