Roseanne “explains” her racist Valerie Jarrett tweet in a bizarre new video

Just when it seemed as though the book was closed on Roseanne and the controversy that brought about the show’s cancellation, its star Roseanne Barr may be adding a new chapter. On Thursday, a video was posted to Barr’s personal YouTube channel in which she “explains” the offensive tweet that started the ordeal by screaming into the camera, “I thought the bitch was white!”

The video comes a little over a week after Barr announced and then canceled a TV appearance to discuss her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, who served as White House senior adviser under President Obama. In the since-deleted tweet, Barr wrote that Jarrett looked like “the Muslim Brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” Following the backlash to Barr’s comment, the show was canceled. A statement from Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, called the tweet “abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values.”
