"I don't know if you know El Segundo [a coastal California town near LA's airport], but if you're black and you're driving through El Segundo, you're going to get pulled over". When Haddish saw Barr in her yard one day, she recalled greeting her.

"I say, 'Hiiii, Roseanne.' She looks at me (makes a disgusted face), and ran in the house", Haddish told THR. "That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it's not new", said Haddish. "I think that everyone is just so desperate to preserve the legacy of a show that touched so many people with such incredible actors ... everyone's trying to stop the bleeding and stop all the damage that has been done".

The disgraced sitcom star explained that her infamous tweet last month calling former Obama presidential aide Valerie Jarrett a "Planet of the Apes" child was about "the anti-semitism of the Iran deal". "I love your comedy, ' and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head", Haddish said.

She also accused 87-year-old Jewish billionaire George Soros, who survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary during World War II, of being a Nazi collaborator. "I'm fine. I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

Before the message in support of West, Barr once again insisted she was not a racist and claimed her comments had been "misunderstood", also saying she had been watching a documentary about civil rights activist Malcolm X.
