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". She then offered a link to the Open Society Foundations, run by the Soros family, with more information about his life. Because of Soros' wealth and influence, especially for his contributions to the Democratic party, he is frequently the subject of conspiracy theories from those who are center-right politically.

"Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me!"

Perhaps this is apology is a part of the process.

Whether or not that's true, Roseanne has had a rough past couple of weeks, and there's no doubt that she's just beginning to realize the full consequences of her actions.

Since the fallout Barr said that she begged ABC to save the show, claiming that he initially thought Jarrett was white when she tweeted: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". "His family was persecuted by the Nazis and survived the Holocaust only because of the strength and resourcefulness of his father".

It was a huge blow to the cast, crew and fans of the blockbuster revival - not to mention the network - when ABC canceled it because of creator Barr's racist tweets.

Producers are moving toward an agreement that would allow them to go ahead with a "Roseanne" spinoff, Page Six has learned, because Roseanne Barr is "seriously considering" forgoing any profits from the new show. Some people complain that the drug causes them to lose part of their memory, and do odd things while they're in that state.
