Roseanne Barr is back in the headlines after posting a video to her YouTube page in which she lashes out while attempting to explain her controversial Valerie Jarrett tweet. Barr is seen on camera smoking and talking to a producer behind the scenes and screams, “I thought the bitch was white! Goddammit. I thought the bitch was white. Fuck.”
Barr was fired from her ABC sitcom “Roseanne” on May 29 after posting a tweet in which she referred to former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as a mix between the “Muslim Brotherhood” and the “Planet of the Apes.” The network quickly cancelled the comedian’s high-rated television show. The comedy will return next season rebranded as “The Connors” and without the involvement of Barr.
At the beginning of the month, Barr tweeted to her fans that she would be participating in a television interview to explain her side of the story in detail. Barr canceled those plans the following day and said she would make her own video interview and publish it on her YouTube page. The video was posted July 19 and runs just over one minute.
