Roseanne Opens Up About The Valerie Jarrett Tweet: ‘I Am Not A Racist’ [Video]

Actress and converted Conservative, Roseanne Barr, spoke on Sean Hannity’s show to explain how her tweet was taken out of context. She spoke directly to Valerie Jarret for a moment in her light and heartfelt own way. The actress explained how she is hurt by social media calling her racist because her tweet was ‘strictly meant as political’. Calling the entire media uproar a ‘misunderstanding’.

Roseanne explains that she has been outraged at the lack of accountability from the previous administration and Mrs. Jarrett’s whole party. Stating that her outrage was the only motive behind her tweet.

Barr on Thursday night, during an interview On Fox News, said that she “made a mistake. It cost me my life’s work.”

“I was so sad, and I’m so sad that anyone thinks that of me,” Barr told Hannity. “I never meant to hurt anybody, or say anything negative about an entire race of people.”

Barr also addressed Jarrett directly and apologized for the tweets, advocating for a broader dialogue on race relations. “We need to talk about race and everything that’s connected to it,” she said.

Hannity attempts to dive deep into Roseanne’s alleged abusive past and mental health issues. Barr seems to speak somewhat openly about her problems with Hannity.

As Reported By Fox News

Just hours after Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett, her wildly popular reboot of “Roseanne” was given the boot.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement on Tuesday that the network would not be producing the show’s second season.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” Dungey told Fox News.

Tuesday’s scheduled “Roseanne” rerun was replaced with a rerun of “The Middle.”

A rep for Barr did not return Fox News’ request for comment. She was also dropped from her talent agency, ICM Partners.
