During the "Everyday Racism in America" town hall Tuesday, Jarrett addressed the issue at hand and shared how Iger reached out to her amid the controversy.
After one of Barr's conservative fans offered his support via the social networking site, Barr replied, "i'm not a racist, just an idiot who made a bad joke. thank you for defending me tho-".
"I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans".
"Wow! Unreal", Barr wrote in response, adding, "I understand her position and why she said what she said".
Despite walking back her racist tweet, Barr, 65, retweeted comments such as: "I look like a monkey. Why?"
Roseanne's announcement that she'd be leaving Twitter behind turned out to be untrue. The talent representative says it has ended its relationship with Barr "effective immediately".

"First of all, I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment", she said.
"I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who came to their defense", Jarrett said at the town hall.
