Roseanne Barr Says She Thought Valerie Jarrett Was White in New Video

Roseanne Barr Says She Thought Valerie Jarrett Was White in New Video

The comedian and sitcom star who was sacked and had her show "Roseanne" cancelled after comparing former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, posted a clip from the new show in which she defends her actions, citing ignorance.

Screaming at her interviewer, who starts rambling on about "a president killing a hooker", with all her might, she totally flips out: 'I'm trying to talk about Iran; I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett; I'm trying to talk about the Iran deal.

In a NSFW mock-interview clip published to her YouTube channel, an exasperated and newly blond Barr grows frustrated and interrupts her off-camera interviewer, who had been talking about presidential denials about sex with prostitutes to address the infamous tweet that got her fired from ABC. She referred to Jarrett as looking like the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby". After the tweet went viral, Barr deleted it and apologized to Jarrett "and to all Americans". The interviewer says, "You've told me this 300 times".

Commenting on the announcement of The Conners, Roseanne said: 'I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from Roseanne.

Earlier this month, Barr tweeted that she planned on doing a sit-down interview. "I thought the b***h was white, g*d damnit, I thought the b***h was white, f**k!" Barr screams. "Goddamnit! I thought the bitch was white! Someone needs to help her", said Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday.

'I am so sorry, ' she continued.

In late June, Barr told Rabbi Shmuley Boteach her tweets "didn't mean what they think I meant."

Barr claims she didn't know Valerie Jarrett was black. I don't want to run off and blather on with excuses.

In front of her son and a couple members of her team, she says.

"I've lost everything", Barr added.

After the outrage, ABC greenlit a 10-episode Conner family sitcom without Barr in it.
