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. In one particularly weird clip, Barr is seen smoking a cigarette and arguing with a producer off camera, who tells her to do the video as if it's a presidential address. "I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal!" she shouts.
If you forgot, Barr faced waves of backlash after tweeting about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett-a black woman who was born in Iran-and connecting her to the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. "That's what my tweet was about".
Barr eventually looks at the camera and yells, "I thought the bitch was white!" in regards to Jarrett.
Barr previously claimed that her tweet was a commentary on anti-Semitism, writing, "Rod Serling wrote 'Planet of The Apes.' It was about anti-semitism". Roseanne then goes on to take a final drag on her cigarette as the video clip ends. I saw someone who is perhaps unraveling - someone who isn't surrounded by people that she needs.
Barr lamented Hollywood's notorious double standard against conservative actors and actresses, noting ABC promptly canceled Roseanne before one sponsor bailed on the program because she supports Donald Trump.
Everyone is talking about Roseanne Barr's freakish rant on YouTube. "God dammit! I thought the bitch was white".
'I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved'. "Forgive me - my joke was in bad taste". "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", she said.
