Roseanne Barr Apologizes To Valerie Jarrett, Then Immediately Mocks Her Haircut

She said she signed off on the deal to allow the 200 cast and crew to work.

"I have apologized a lot". "And I found cigarettes from when I was 13 and they were good smokin'", she quipped.

"I don't suffer from it any more", Barr corrected. "I mean seriously. She needs a new haircut".

"I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt".

"I was so sad that people thought it was racist", Barr said, in her first televised interview since the "Rosanne" revival was shut down after ABC deemed the tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

Later in the live podcast she claimed that her axing off the sitcom was a long time coming and that ABC wanted her off the show for some time. Hannity initially responded to the tweet by saying it was "outrageous". "What God puts before me I do", she said. Barr clarified to Hannity that she saw the tweet as political, not racial, adding "I will always defend Israel".

Roseanne looked into the camera and said with seeming sincerity, "I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill worded tweet".

'I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything about an entire race of people, which I think 30 years of my work can attest to'.


Barr has since offered several defenses for her choice of words - which compared Jarrett to Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood - including insisting she was misunderstood, under the influence of Ambien, and repeatedly contending that she didn't know Jarrett was black.

"You could have knocked me over with a feather when they said she was African-American", Barr told Hannity of the moment when executives from ABC asked her to explain the posting.

"I didn't know she was African-American".

She added: 'Plus, I'd tell her she's got to get a new haircut.

Her explanations have shifted nearly since the controversy began.

At one point, Hannity asked what Barr would say to Jarrett if she could talk to her directly. "And, you know, I can talk about it till I'm blue in the face and they're not going to accept that, but I accept that". "People want to hear balance, they want to hear the truth".

McCain said she had been very excited about the ABC reboot of Barr's now-cancelled television show, which premiered to record-breaking ratings earlier this year.

Barr told Hannity she felt she was "fighting the right by being really left", referring to her 2012 run for the presidency as a socialist candidate.
