The Reverend Al Sharpton is calling on ABC to act after actress-comedian Roseanne Barr made racially charged comments about Valerie Jarrett, a former top aide to President Barack Obama.

“The comparison by Roseanne Barr on ABC of Former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!” Sharpton tweeted in response to Barr remarking Jarrett would be the product of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes if they “had a baby.”
Barr, who told CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski that her controversial comment was meant to be a joke, later told her 646,000 followers that she was leaving Twitter and apologized for the “bad taste” crack about Jarrett.

“I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter,” the actress-comedian tweeted.
