Roseanne Barr Angrily 'Explains' Racist Tweet: 'I Thought the B**** Was White!'

Roseanne Barr Angrily 'Explains' Racist Tweet: 'I Thought the B**** Was White!'

The video claiming she's being persecuted for having voted for Trump follows another video Barr sent out earlier today, in which she, yet again, addresses the racist tweet about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett that caused ABC to cancel her show.

The actress has since apologised for the tweet, which subsequently hurled her career off a cliff edge, but another interview, shared on Roseanne's YouTube channel yesterday, sees the 65-year-old puffing on a cigarette, yanking on her hair and literally yelling at the camera: 'I thought the bitch was white'. She said she wanted to talk about Jarrett running the Iran deal. "That's what my tweet was about". "Goddamnit, I thought the bitch was White. F-!" Jarrett served under Barack Obama, who is not one of Roseanne's favorite people. This was my statement from the very beginning, and it will continue to be forever because it is the truth. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", she said.

After ABC cancelled her show, Roseanne said she was quitting Twitter, blamed her rant against Jarrett on the sleeping medication Ambien and said she was done doing TV interviews.

Blue Origin Conducts its Escape Motor Test
Blue Origin, owned by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, plans to webcast Wednesday's test flight, which is set for takeoff at 10 a.m. CDT) from the company's sprawling test site north of Van Horn, Texas , around 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of El Paso.

Then, in a guttural scream, Roseanne roars: "I thought the b-- was white!"

Last month, ABC announced it would in the fall debut a "Roseanne" spinoff tentatively titled "The Conners" - minus Barr. Pentland told TMZ that guests include himself, Barr's boyfriend, former Roseanne crew member Allan Stephan and her former campaign manager Thomas Muhammad.

Barr's controversial tweet, which read "Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby=vj", has since been deleted, but the repercussions remain, despite her numerous apologies to Jarrett and her Roseanne co-stars via social media.
