Roseanne Barr Attempts to Explain Racist Tweet in Expletive-Filled Rant

YouTube  Roseanne Barr

However, Barr backed out of the interview, stating that she did not trust television, and said that she would post her own video on YouTube to explain her side of the story. "That's what my tweet was about". Barr screamed. "Goddammit! I thought the bitch was white!" "I thought the b***h was white, g*d damnit, I thought the b***h was white, f**k!"

Barr later apologized to Jarrett and blamed the insensitive tweet on Ambien.

The actress' revived TV series Roseanne was axed by ABC network executives in late May after she was accused of being racist for describing Valerie, an adviser to former U.S. President Barack Obama, as the result of the "Muslim brotherhood" and "planet of the apes having a baby" on Twitter.

Deadline reports that a new version of the show (featuring yes, a black female lead), is in development at Fox 21 TV Studios. Talks reportedly began in the fall of that year; THR notes that Breen's involvement pushed the project to the next stage.

Back in May this year, the world stood still as the United States comic compared President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape. If anyone hadn't noticed the racist undertones of her show's return, or if they just didn't care, at least the tweet immediately put ABC in a precarious position. "I hope this is something she's done to see how many people pick up on it. cause I would be very sad if her team allowed her to put that out there and didn't say - look, this doesn't really help anything. Fuck!" The interviewer can be heard laughing hysterically in the background as Barr takes a puff of her cigarette.

Barr will release episodes of the show directly on her YouTube channel, with the released clip giving a preview of the show's first episode. Pentland told TMZ that guests include himself, Barr's boyfriend, former Roseanne crew member Allan Stephan and her former campaign manager Thomas Muhammad.

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.
