Roseanne Barr Tells Fox's Hannity Racist Tweet Was A Big Misunderstanding

  • Roseanne Barr talks with Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity while being interviewed during a taping of his show Thursday

"I've apologized a lot", Barr told Sean Hannity on his Fox News Channel program, before - at the host's prodding - directly saying she was "sorry that you thought I was racist" to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, the target of the tweet that prompted ABC to cancel "Roseanne".

ABC canceled Barr's namesake sitcom "Roseanne" in May after she tweeted that Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran to American parents, looked like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".

There was a moment in Sean Hannity's interview tonight with Roseanne Barr when the two seemed like old friends.

"I was so sad that people thought it was racist", Barr said, in her first televised interview since the "Rosanne" revival was shut down after ABC deemed the tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". "I imagine you would say that about me", he said.

Since outspoken Trump supporter Roseanne Barr was sacked from the ABC show bearing her name, some conservatives have been eager to see liberals face similar repercussions.

She said: "I'm not a racist and the people who voted for Trump, they're not racist either, and Trump isn't a racist, sorry". "I feel like I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense, that's part of my religion". "I asked them to let me go on The View and other shows and explain and correct that I didn't say what they were putting out there, and they said no", she said.

"The first thing was shock when they said it was racial when it was supposed to be political". And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. I'm sorry that you feel harm and hurt. "I apologize. I never meant to hurt anybody".

By the end of the interview, Hannity was giving her ideas for a speaking tour and a stand-up comedy tour.

"'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. "She needs a new haircut". It was important for her to atone personally, but also as a "high profile ambassador" as a Jewish woman and a "practitioner of Jewish beliefs".

She did not clarify what she believed was Jarrett's involvement in the agreement. A few hours after her initial video, Barr posted another clip to YouTube, titled, "Roseanne Barr's official statement".

She said the tweet referencing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett - "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj" - was a bid to seek accountability for the 2015 worldwide agreement limiting Iran's nuclear program.
