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

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.

On her tweets, the fallout, and requesting time on ABC's The View to speak: "I told ABC this at the beginning: I will always defend Israel..."

"You know I made a mistake-obviously", she said. "That's what was in my head", said Barr.

"I feel that I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense", Barr said on Thursday, adding that she has made donations to "several African-American things". She said she would tell Jarrett, "I'm sorry that you feel harm and hurt, I never meant that".

If she's watching, I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought that my tweet was racist because it wasn't, it was political. "But what I would ask is we don't throw her away". I mean, seriously, she needs a new haircut'.

Roseanne Barr has apologised for her offensive tweet that resulted in her ABC show being cancelled, saying it "cost me everything".

"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.

The actress claimed she fought extremism, but fears it is growing, adding, "I feel like both the left and the right have marginalized the middle, and it's just too insane".

"I don't suffer from it anymore", Barr said of a multiple personality disorder diagnosis.

"Abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values", ABC Entertainment chief Channing Dungey said in describing Barr's tweet and announcing the show's cancellation just days after Barr headlined the network's upfront presentation.

Just two, she corrected again, plus blood pressure medication.

In Roseanne Barr's first TV interview since her ABC sitcom was canceled for a racist tweet, the comedian apologized for her "ill-worded" post and insisted she isn't a bigot.

Jarrett, for her part, has largely sidestepped the controversy. 'Let's really turn this into a teachable moment'.

In a live sit-down with Fox News' Sean Hannity Thursday, the 65-year-old actress said her tweet was simply political.

"No, I didn't know - like a lot of Americans including a lot of people of all types, they didn't know either", she said.

Shmuley went on to call the ABC sitcom "a blessing" and a show that "succeeded for Democrats and Republicans", before addressing Barr "as a person". "And they can't take that away from me, no matter what's happened". Hannity initially responded to the tweet by saying it was "outrageous".
