Roseanne Barr Loses It In Latest Interview About Twitter Racism Scandal

Roseanne Barr is speaking out yet again regarding her now-infamous racist tweet toward Valerie Jarrett, a former advisor to President Barack Obama. As someone off camera talks her through the shot, she becomes agitated, yelling, "I'm trying to talk about Iran!" As the producer tried to say he understood what she was talking about, Barr, went off the rails, saying, "I thought the b**** was white!" "I thought the b***h was white, g*d damnit, I thought the b***h was white, f**k!"

Note: The following video contains numerous profanities.

Barr had been fired from her ABC sitcom, the revived "Roseanne", in May after she in a tweet described Jarrett as "Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the apes had a baby".

In the short clip, she reiterates that she didn't realize Jarrett was black when she sent the tweet comparing the political strategist to an ape, so therefore she's not racist.

Back in May this year, the world stood still as the USA comic compared President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

Then, in a guttural scream, Roseanne roars: "I thought the b-- was white!" This was my statement from the very beginning, and it will continue to be forever because it is the truth. The 65-year old comedian was supposed to take part in a television interview to discuss the controversy, which resulted in the cancelation of the successful Roseanne revival series.

Meanwhile, a spin-off based on the rest of the cast, with no involvement from Roseanne, is now confirmed to be in the works.

TMZ quoted Jake's statement, "The plan to release the content on Roseanne's YouTube channel without any big networks is getting involved which will get a truly unfiltered and unedited version of Barr". I should have known better. Guests of the show, so far, include Jake, Roseanne's boyfriend, a former "Roseanne" crew member and her former campaign manager, Thomas Muhammad.
