Roseanne Barr accused her former employers at ABC of "anti-S-emitism," contending in a recent interview that her outspoken support of Israel played a role in her firing last year.

"I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is anti-Semitism," Barr told the Jerusalem Post published Friday ahead of a planned address of the Israeli parliament later this month. "I think it played a part — the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant — and what I meant was a commentary on Iran — so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn't let me explain."

"What I said was mischaracterized purposely and repeatedly, so they didn't even know what I meant, but they wanted to shape it and they did — they said it was something racial, when it was actually something political," Barr said in the Jerusalem Post interview.

"And I have never in my life done anything racist, and I think my career proves that," she said. "And they did it so quickly — to fire and label and slander my name. I think it had a lot to do with identifying with Israel."
