In deranged new video, Roseanne Barr says of Valerie Jarrett, ‘I thought the bitch was white’
By now, everyone knows about Roseanne Barr‘s public fall from grace. She started out this year with a multi-million dollar role on the number one sitcom on television. Now, the disgraced comedian looks like she can barely pull it together to do a simple interview.
In a clip released on her YouTube account on Friday, Barr is seen puffing heavily on a cigarette while she tests out her mic and fidgets with her hair. A producer is then heard in the background trying to give her pointers on how to conduct the interview.
“Imagine you are giving a presidential address and you’re busted after killing a hooker and they say, tonight, the President is going to give his address. The camera fades out and it’s the president giving his address in the Oval office,” directs the producer.
Confused? So are we…and so was Barr.
After a few more inappropriate references to describe the producer’s preferred format, a visibly frustrated Barr, screams back that she is trying to talk about the Iran deal and Valerie Jarrett because that’s what her tweet was about.
Then out of no where, here she goes again.
“I though the bitch was white!” screams Barr as she glares into the camera. “God damn it! I thought the bitch was white.”
Umm, errr, ok.
Barr was fired from the her sitcom “Roseanne,” in May after she published a tweet that described Valerie Jarrett, former special advisor to President Barack Obama, as what would happen if the “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the apes had a baby.”
Jarrett, an African American woman who was born in Iran, has been accused by conservatives who believe she was behind a secret push to make America a “more Islamic country.” According to the fact-checking website, Snopes, that claim is “false.”
After the fall out, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey released a statement saying, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
After losing it all, Barr later apologized for her offensive tweet calling a Black woman an ape.
“It’s really hard to say this, but I didn’t mean what they think I meant,” she said during the interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast.
“I don’t want to run off and blather on with excuses, but I apologize to anyone who thought, or felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean. It was my own ignorance, and there’s no excuse for that ignorance.”
“I definitely feel remorse,” she said. “I’m a lot of things, I’m a loud mouth and all that stuff, but I’m not stupid, for God’s sake. I never would have wittingly called any black person…a monkey.”
Barr blamed everything from the sleep aid, Ambien to her not knowing that Jarret was Black as the reason for her impaired judgment. We wonder what’s going to be the excuse this time.
See the NSFW video for yourself…
