In her responses to other tweeters and followers, she says she feels she's been punished enough, and wants to tell her side of the story now, including that she thought Valerie Jarrett was white, Jewish or Persian, and therefore it was okay to joke about her. "I went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please".

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", Barr said.

Jarrett, 61, saidBob Iger, chief executive of ABC's parent company, Disney, called her before the announcement was made to apologize. "I also think every individual citizen has a responsibility, too, and it's up to all of us to push back".
When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over". In particular, she said 36-year-old Fishman - who played the Conners' son D.J.in the original series and revival, and shared a lengthy statement on Twitter expressing his "vehement" condemnation of Barr's words - threw her "under the bus".
