'Roseanne Barr' to Do Talk Show

After a loud groan, an agitated Barr lashes out at her interviewer when asked about her now-notorious tweet in which she claimed the former Barack Obama adviser was a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes".

Disgraced comedian Roseanne Barr released a freaky YouTube video where she attempted to address her fans directly about her racist Valerie Jarrett tweet.

"I'm trying to talk about Iran".

Finally, she begins shouting, "I was trying to talk about Iran", then stares into the camera and angrily yells, "I thought the b***h was white!"

It's not the first time Barr has made this argument, but it is the most visibly worked up she's been while doing so, since she follows the shouted statement up with even more profanity before repeating her claim again.

"I thought the bitch was white!"

Barr backtracked on the explosive comment in a subsequent tweet. "One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me".

She later apologized to Jarrett and blamed the insensitive tweet on Ambien.

Roseanne Barr appeared extremely frustrated when asked about Valerie Jarrett in a freakish new video posted to the comedian's YouTube channel.

"I thought the bitch was white!"

"I'm a lot of things", she said during a call to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's podcast in June.

Her Roseanne cast mates have since condoned the tweet while ABC have confirmed plans to launch a spin-off starring John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, now going under the working title, The Conners. I'm very sorry but I don't think that, I never would do that. I never would do that! "I'm a loudmouth and all that stuff, but I'm not stupid, for God's sake".

"And if people think that I did that, it just kills me". And I've made myself a hate magnet.

"I've lost everything", Barr lamented at the time. But I apologize to anyone who thought, or felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean.
