And Then Immediately Insult Her Hair

Barr reiterated that the tweet was meant to be political, not racial, but stopped short of repeating her recent claim that she was sacked because she's a Trump supporter.

"That is a political tweet", she explained.

Barr was sacked and her rebooted sitcom was canceled within 24 hours of her tweet. Barr said her godson's father called her after the tweet and said, "I love you no matter what you do".

Now, Barr is dealing with the repercussions of her actions. "That's what was in my head".

During an hour-long interview, Hannity repeatedly urged Barr to apologise to Jarrett on air. And I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt. I never meant that.

"So is forgiveness dead in America?" he asked. And for that I apologize. "I don't want to run off and blather on with excuses", she said.

At one point, Hannity gives her the chance to speak directly to Jarrett.

She added: 'Plus, I'd tell her she's got to get a new haircut. "But there was a white woman named Roseanne Barr that showed up for me".

It was hyped as the superstar comic's first TV interview after ABC dropped one of the highest-rated shows of the last TV season within hours of her posting back in May.

She then suggested, as she has previously, that she didn't know Jarrett was an African American: "No, I didn't know - like a lot of Americans including a lot of people of all types, they didn't know either".

Mo'Nique described Barr as her "sister in comedy" and called the infamous tweet a mistake, saying she wouldn't "put (Barr) on the racist list". "My values are in the middle", she said.

In Roseanne Barr's first TV interview since her ABC sitcom was canceled for a racist tweet, the comedian apologized for her "ill-worded" post and insisted she isn't a bigot.

She added that she invited Jarrett to join her appearance on Sean Hannity, which she refused. Appearing on The View Wednesday, she said "this isn't what keeps me up at night", referencing more pressing nationwide crises than racial epithets hurled by an aging sitcom star. 'Let's really turn this into a teachable moment'. "Don't assume you know what I meant, because I think you don't know what I meant, and I would like to make it clearer to you what I did mean". Hannity initially responded to the tweet by saying it was "outrageous".

"The problem I have right now is Roseanne is every gross stereotype I'm trying to get people to go away from", she continued, not referring to Barr herself.
