Roseanne Barr Gives Another Tearful Apology: ‘I’ve Made Myself A Hate Magnet’

Indeed before ABC canceled her show, Barr had tweeted out a plea telling people not to defend her initial tweet about Jarrett.

The tweet in question saw Barr refer to the African American former White House aide as "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby". It reportedly referred to an online claim that the Central Intelligence Agency spied on French presidential candidates, with "vj" referring to Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama aide. Recorded and released by the comedian's spiritual adviser, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Barr spends much of the 35-minute interview, which was recorded the day after ABC cancelled the series and fired her, apologizing for her behavior on social media.

"I'm a lot of things". "I never would have wittingly called any black person... say they are a monkey". I never would do that! And I didn't do that.

The remorseful star also said that it "kills me" that people think she is a racist when she is not, and reiterated her claim that she made the tweet while on Ambien. And if they do think that I am so sorry that I-ya know, it was so unclear and stupid.

When asked by Boteach if she regrets her tweet, Barr replies, "Of course, no I don't excuse it. I have done something awful and I apologize to you, and I ask for your forgiveness, '" Barr said.

"I said to God, 'I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I've done wrong".

Listen to the full audio here. I have done something frightful and I apologise to you, and I ask for your forgiveness'.

"So, I'm asking, in that tweet, people see in that a complete contravention of that values system", he said, as the topic of the tweet arose. "And that's really weird too because if I don't speak for myself, who will speak for me". "I can't, I can't let 'em say these things about that, after 30 years of my putting my family and my health and my livelihood at risk to stand up for people".

"I know I should've known better because I know it's a form of racism to assume that every person who looks white is indeed white", she said.

"I caused pain for my family, I caused pain for my mother, I caused pain to the two hundred out-of-work actors that I loved", Barr said.

Barr described herself as a hate magnet unworthy of being defended.

Barr and her television show have been the subject of previous controversy, most surrounding Barr's open support of President Donald Trump.
