Roseanne defends tweet on YouTube, thought Valerie Jarrett was white she says

Roseanne Barr arrives at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills Calif. Barr is blaming a racist tweet that got her hit show canceled on the insomnia medication Ambien prompting its maker to respond that

Barr backtracked on the explosive comment in a subsequent tweet.

The comedian had her reboot television series canceled after posting racist tweets about former White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. In a clip of the interview, Barr, who appears flustered by the line of questioning from the host, lashes out, screaming an expletive-laden excuse for why she didn't deserve scrutiny.

In a video posted to Barr's YouTube page, a slightly disheveled Barr, 65, smokes a cigarette while talking to a producer about a previous video that was thoroughly edited.

Her Roseanne cast mates have since condoned the tweet while ABC have confirmed plans to launch a spin-off starring John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, now going under the working title, The Conners. I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett! "I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett, the Iran deal!"

'I've lost everything. And I regretted it before I lost everything and I said to God, "I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I've done wrong".

She then sighs and exclaims, "That's what my tweet was about!" and he says again that she's "explained this literally 300 times".

'I thought the bitch was white, godammit.

Barr's original tweet about Jarret read, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj", using Jarrett's initials while replying to a tweet that accused Jarrett of covering up alleged indiscretions by the Obama administration. Barr screams. "Goddamnit! I thought the bitch was white!"

Nearly two months after Roseanne Barr was sacked ABC, the actress is launching her own talk show on YouTube, TMZ reports. "Someone needs to help her", said Sunny Hostin on "The View" Friday.

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", she wrote.

She added that her tweets "didn't mean what they think I meant ..."

She later apologized to Jarrett and blamed the insensitive tweet on Ambien. She also said she was leaving Twitter.
