Valerie Jarrett announces new book and shades Roseanne perfectly

Valerie Jarrett announces new book and shades Roseanne perfectly

During her hour-long appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News Channel show Thursday, Barr lamented the damage done to her by her tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama.

Barr also repeated previous explanations for her tweet, including that she was under the influence of the sleeping pill Ambien, had drunk two beers and was taking anti-depressants on the night she posted the message.

Explaining the Jarrett tweet, Barr said she was calling for "accountability" from the Obama administration over the Iran nuclear deal, given her views on Israel and her opposition to the country's stance on LGBTQ rights and women.

"I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist, because it wasn't".

Now, Barr is dealing with the repercussions of her actions. Barr said her godson's father called her after the tweet and said, "I love you no matter what you do". "It cost me my life's work". "I feel like I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense, that's part of my religion". "I never meant to hurt anybody, or say anything negative about an entire race of people, which think 30 years of my work can attest to".

As for her initial reaction to the backlash, "The first thing was shock that they were saying it was racial, when it's political". And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. But also said that she had been wrongly villainized in the media.

'I've apologised a lot, ' Barr said. I was filming this thing, my real apology followed it. People were like you are not addressing this correctly.

During the interview, which focused primarily on Barr's controversial tweet, the comedian doubled down on the fact that she thought Jarrett, an African-American, is white.

She confessed: "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". I never meant that, and for that I apologize.

Despite this, Roseanne has insisted she's entitled to her own opinions and that the racism storm hasn't led her to reevaluate her political position.

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

Boteach repeatedly returned to the way that "Martin Luther King Jr., the greatest American of the twentieth century" had forgiven people who had been racist toward him.

With her sacking by ABC, the network also scrapped Roseanne's sitcom, a re-boot of the series that originally ran for nearly a decade from 1988.
