She's finally telling it like it is. Roseanne Barr has been promising fans a tell-all interview after the racist tweet that got her hit sitcom Roseanne cancelled, and while we didn't get that quite yet, on Thursday, July 19, she posted a video of herself acting irate over her claim that Valerie Jarrett is an ape.
In the video, a smoking Roseanne was seemingly annoyed about the entire situation. "I'm trying to talk about Iran!" she said to the mysterious interviewer. "I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal!"
"I know," the interviewer replied. "You've told me this 300 times." She then screamed, "That's what my tweet was about!" to which the interview said, "I know. You've explained this literally 300 times."
Roseanne then commented on Valerie again. "I thought the btch was white! God dammit! I thought the btch was white! F**k!" she screamed.
After all the ruckus in May, Roseanne apologized to Valerie for her crude comment. "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste," she said at the time.
As time went on, Roseanne, 65, opened up about the scandal even more. "I definitely feel remorse," she said as she broke down in tears during a podcast interview in June. "I have black children in my family. I can’t let them say these things about me after 30 years of putting my family and my health and my livelihood at risk to stand up for people. I’m a lot of things, I’m a loud mouth and all that stuff, but I’m not stupid for god’s sake. And I never would have wittingly called any black person or say they are a monkey, I never would do that and I didn’t do that. And people think that I did that, it just kills me. I didn’t do that."
She continued, "I didn’t mean what they think I meant and that’s why it’s so painful. But I have to face that. When you hurt people even unwittingly, there’s no excuse and I apologize to anyone who felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I in fact did not mean, to my own ignorance. I didn’t mean it the way they’re saying I meant it." What a mess…
