Her racist comment about Jarrett ultimately led to ABC canceling Barr's sitcom, "Roseanne", and the actress apologized to Jarrett hours later.

Roseanne Barr issued an apology to George Soros for calling him a Nazi.

'George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? The tweet came after Barr falsely claimed that Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Hillary Clinton, was married to Soros's nephew.

Although Barr apologized soon after the tweet, she didn't address her comments about Soros which were even retweeted by President Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. "His family was persecuted by the Nazis and survived the Holocaust only because of the strength and resourcefulness of his father".

Alexander Soros said her lie was "odious", and wrote that his father, who was 13 when he was taken in by a Hungarian official, "did not collaborate with the Nazis.Roseanne Barr's claims are not just an insult to my father, but [to] all those who endured the Holocaust". Soros was 14 years old in 1945 and hid his Jewish identity to escape Nazi persecution in Hungary. During an interview with the New Republic, Soros said children were ordered by the Jewish Council to deliver deportation notices to local Jewish lawyers.

On the same day, Barr posted her Twitter message about Jarrett, which led to a backlash that ended in the cancellation of "Roseanne" on ABC.

ABC swiftly canceled Barr's hit show "Roseanne" and slammed the comedian's comments as "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".
