Roseanne Barr stood up moderately proudly about the racist tweet against Valerie Jarrett that got her Roseanne reboot dropped: “I thought the b—h was white!”
In a video presented on Barr’s YouTube page, a messy Barr, 65, smokes a cigarette while conversing with a producer about a past video that was edited.
After a boisterous moan, an upset Barr lashes out at the interviewer when gotten some information about her now-famous tweet in which she said the previous Barack Obama counsel was a formation of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”
“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal,” Barr roars in the clip. “That’s what my tweet was about. I thought the bitch was white, goddammit. I thought the bitch was white. F–k!”
The tweet got the “Roseanne” reboot dropped on May 29, after which Barr was at first to a great degree penitent and suggested Ambien was the result of her outburst.
Barr beforehand asserted that her tweet was a critique on hostile to Semitism, expressing, “Rod Serling wrote ‘Planet of The Apes.’ It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to – the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.” She also said her tweet was “insensitive” but “not racist.”
In late June, Barr revealed to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach that she made herself into a “hate magnet” with her unhinged tweets, which additionally included calling George Soros a Nazi.
She’s since apologized to Soros.
“I said to God, ‘I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I’ve done wrong. I’m going to accept what the consequences are,’ and I do, and I have.’ But they don’t ever stop. They don’t accept my apology, or explanation. And I’ve made myself a hate magnet. And as a Jew, it’s just horrible. It’s horrible,” she said on the podcast.
She added that her tweets “didn’t mean what they think I meant … But I have to face that it hurt people. When you hurt people even unwillingly there’s no excuse. I don’t want to run off and blather on with excuses. But I apologize to anyone who thought, or felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean. It was my own ignorance, and there’s no excuse for that ignorance.”
“I’ve lost everything,” Barr lamented at the time. “And I regretted it before I lost everything.”
