Roseanne Barr to Sean Hannity About Racist Tweet: 'It Cost Me Everything'

Valerie Jarrett

Barr told Hannity that her contract stipulated she would have 24 hours to clean up any tweets, to protect her from herself.

Barr then added: "Plus, I'd tell her she's got to get a new haircut, seriously". "That's what was in my head", said Barr.

Barr also apologized for "the misunderstanding" that her "ill-worded" post caused, and claimed she "never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people which I think 30 years of my work can attest to".

"My show was canceled before not even one advertiser was pulled out and I was labeled a racist", Barr says. And you know I.I'm sorry if you felt harmed and hurt. "Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple: Because I voted for Donald Trump, and that is not allowed in Hollywood".

"It cost me everything", Barr said.

"I am a creative genius, and this is not a good feeling for an artist to be treated this way, and it's not a good feeling for a citizen, either", she said.

Barr insisted the Jarrett tweet was "political" not "racial" and was connected to Barr's advocacy for Israel. The comic also claimed a recent video she released on YouTube, saying of Jarrett, "I thought the b**** was white", was a joke.

With her sacking by ABC, the network also scrapped Roseanne's sitcom, a re-boot of the series that originally ran for nearly a decade from 1988.

Barr again said that she was stunned when ABC first contacted her about the tweet. Barr also went on to say that being called racist was "the worst thing". "My values are in the middle", she said.

She did not clarify what she believed was Jarrett's involvement in the agreement. "But no, I did not know, like a lot of Americans, including a lot of people of all types, they didn't know either".

ABC has since ordered a spin-off of the show called The Conners, which is due to air in October.

It all started on May 29 when Barr tweeted that Obama's former adviser Valerie Jarrett looks like "Muslim Brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby" stirring an uproar online and leading to the axing of her eponymous show. I think the balance is more toward the good, ' she said. 'Let's really turn this into a teachable moment'. "I feel like I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense, that's part of my religion". They were appearing at that venue because Donny, the owner, had offered them the studio in which they had recorded the four podcasts since Barr's fateful tweet.
