TV’s Roseanne says tweet ‘cost me everything’ but wasn’t racist

Roseanne Barr disputes racist claims: 'I'm not that person'

The tweet implied senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and an ape.

Referencing the return of "Roseanne", McCain said she was "so excited" to see it come back and felt it was a good "reflection of the middle of the country", sparking dialogue between both sides of the political aisle.

The 2009 Academy Award victor for best-supporting actress explained during a Morning News interview with Sam Rubin how Roseanne Barr supported her early on in her career, at a time when many people would not.

"I made a lot of mistakes", she said. "That's what was in my head", said Barr.

Roseanne looked into the camera and said with seeming sincerity, "I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill worded tweet".

"I'm sorry you feel harmed", she added. For that, I apologize. I never meant that. "It cost me everything-my life's work, everything. I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved", Barr said in a June statement after the new show was picked up.

At another point, just before addressing Jarrett, Barr said, "I already have said I'm sorry for two months". "I mean seriously. She needs a good haircut".

"I walked away from that show, despite the fact that I had a contract which protected me from if I got in trouble with tweets", Barr said.

"I didn't know she was African-American".

The 65-year-old disgraced actress' addressed her racist tweets during her interview on Thursday (July 26) where she opened up about how sorry she is why while also explaining the backlash she's received. "We just have a different opinion".

In defending her racist tweet-in which she called former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett an ape-Barr asked Hannity if he knew what it was like to be surrounded by people who think Trump is the worst thing that has happened to this country.

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.

Later, when questioned about racism, she broke down in tears, telling the rabbi: "I never would have wittingly called any black person, [said that] they are a monkey". Hannity initially responded to the tweet by saying it was "outrageous". I could fight this, because they didn't give me the notice or the chance to correct.
