Roseanne Barr apologises to Valerie Jarrett over ‘misunderstanding’ - insults haircut

Roseanne Barr attends live podcast at Stand Up NY

The original Roseanne writers, producers and cast members, excluding Barr, will work on the new show.

During her hour-long appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News Channel show Thursday, Barr lamented the damage done to her by her tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. And for that I apologize. But she also expressed pride in the ratings success that the "Roseanne" revival had, saying, "They can't take that away from me no matter what's happened".

During the interview, which focused primarily on Barr's controversial tweet, the comedian doubled down on the fact that she thought Jarrett, an African-American, is white.

Roseanne Barr talks with Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity while being interviewed during a taping of his show, Thursday, July 26, 2018, in NY. When Hannity referenced whether she was compensated for that by the network, she said, "We can't talk about that".

ABC has since ordered a spin-off of the show called The Conners, which is due to air in October. I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people. "It cost me everything, my life's work, and I've paid the price for it".

China’s Xi warns of ‘unilateralism’ in US trade dispute
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived on Monday on the way to a summit in South Africa and agreed $200 million in loans. Trade wars should be rejected because there will be "no winner" from them, Chinese President Xi Jinping said.

"I don't suffer from it any more", Barr corrected. "I apologize. I never meant to hurt anybody".

She added that her contract with ABC protected her from any mistakes she were to possibly make. "Here's what I have to say: Let's talk about it. Let's really turn this into a teachable moment", Barr said, telling Hannity she assumed Jarrett was Iranian because she was born in Iran.

I think the balance is more toward the good, ' she said.

"That is a tweet asking for accountability from the previous administration about the Iran deal, which Valerie Jarrett is the author of", she said.

This is a developing story. "It was Memorial Day, I had 2 beers", she told Hannity.

The shooter is also dead, the Globe and Mail reports, though it is unclear whether he was shot by police or died by suicide. They were all out tonight walking, having their dinner ... it's just unbelievable in this neighborhood", one witness said.

When asked by Hannity if this is the freedom of speech she wanted to use, Barr replied: "No, I wish I'd worded it better".

Barr has also been crying foul and tweeting about her "disgust" for people who defended "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn, who Disney fired over pedophilia and rape jokes he tweeted.

ABC dropped Barr in May, shortly after she posted that tweet about Jarrett.

She said she had not tried to contact Jarrett to apologize personally because she feared being screamed at on the phone.

Barr, who is Jewish, got emotional at the idea of being perceived as racist by her close circle's children, which includes African-Americans and Asians, nothing that "Jews get around".
