Roseanne Barr is back into the public eye in a major way. But it’s not in entertainment.
Barr recently announced she will be speaking to Israel’s Parliament prior to upcoming elections in April.
Roseanne has been keeping a rather low profile recently, but that is about to end when she goes in front of the Israeli Parliament.
Barr considers herself “a lover of Israel” and continues to be upset by the actions of Palestine.
Her speech will cover actions by Palestine she considers to be “insidious and anti-Semitic.”
Barr was apparently requested to make this appearance, as the trip was organized by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s World Values Network.
The elections are being held because there is more pressure being put on Benjamin Netanyahu, with possible corruption charges looming.
Netanyahu is dissolving the current government coalition and will hold elections in April for new leadership.
The Fall from Grace
Barr has had a rather interesting year in 2018.
After posting an ill-advised tweet that was meant to be a joke, the outspoken actress found herself under considerable scrutiny.
Liberals jumped all over her rude tweet about Valerie Jarrett with cries of racism.
In the midst of a reboot of her successful sitcom, ABC decided to pull the plug without giving Barr a chance to explain herself.
To her credit, Barr did not shy away from the criticism and took ownership of her actions, apologizing for the tweet.
ABC, however, had already made its decision and refused to give her a second chance.
Rather than bring her back, the network decided to go ahead with the sitcom, releasing a reboot that featured everyone from the original cast sans Roseanne.
To add insult to injury, Roseanne’s departure from the show was written in as a death from a drug overdose.
