Roseanne Barr Shockingly Slams Valerie Jarrett’s Haircut In Bizarre Rambling ‘Hannity’ Interview

In June, ABC announced a Roseanne spin-off that will not feature Barr.

"Roseanne is every gross stereotype I'm trying to get people to get away from", she said.

Roseanne Barr maintained during a free-wheeling interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night that her tweet going after former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was political and not racist. "And for that I apologize", Roseanne said. I made a mistake.

Barr appeared on Fox News" nightly show, Hannity and doubled down on her claims that the tweet heard "round the world was not racially motivated.

Roseanne Barr talks with Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity while being interviewed during a taping of his show, Thursday, July 26, 2018, in NY.

Hannity was quick to point out that Barr was joking. In canceling the show, the network - which is part of the Walt Disney Co. - issued a statement calling it "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people. I'm a Jew and I have family that lives there.

"I want to apologize to [the viewers], too", Barr said. And, you know I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt.

Which implies she did think it was ok to compare a person from a country in the Middle East to the offspring of an ape - another serious stereotype.

She added that her contract with ABC protected her from any mistakes she were to possibly make.

Throughout the wide-ranging interview, Barr repeatedly said that her tweet was misinterpreted.

"If she's watching, I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist", Barr said.

When given a number of opportunities to apologise directly to Ms Jarrett, Barr said: "I'm so sorry you thought I was racist, and that you thought my tweet was racist".

This is a developing story.

In the fallout from the tweet, Barr lost her job with ABC, and the reboot of her show "Roseanne" was canceled.

She has since apologized for the tweet but continues to protest the decision.

Barr reiterated that the tweet was meant to be political, not racial, but stopped short of repeating her recent claim that she was sacked because she's a Trump supporter.

Roseanne Barr is back on TV for the first time since she was sacked from her ABC sitcom for her now-infamous tweet. "I am somebody who cares about civil rights", she said. "I mean seriously. She needs a new haircut".

The American network said that the 10-episode series, which has the working title The Conners, will include John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky) and Michael Fishman (D.J.).
