Shamed comedian Rosanne Barr has returned to social media after her US sitcom was cancelled following a racism scandal.

The ‘Roseanne’ star was axed by network ABC after she made a racial slur about one of Barack Obama’s senior advisers, Valerie Jarrett, on Twitter.

As she returned to the networking site, she said she had been reflecting on the scandal, but insisted she was “misunderstood” and had “never practised racism”.

She tweeted: “I want u all2 know I’m fine. I’ve been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood.. Needless2 say I’m NOT what people have accused me of! I’ve never practiced ‘RACISM’ in my entire life & never will.”
