Roseanne Barr on Valerie Jarrett: I Thought the B-tch Was White!
You know what, folks?
We're starting to think that Roseanne Barr may be a tad bit unhinged.
What? That's not exactly a groundbreaking statement?
Okay, fine. Fair enough.
Many people likely believed this as soon as Barr referred to former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as ape, something Roseanne Tweeted that prompted the cancelation of her sitcom.
Others may have believed it after Roseanne ranted and raved in response to this cancelation.
And still others may have believed this after Roseanne said people only dislike her because she's Jewish.
Now, meanwhile, anyone NOT convinced has another reason to question Barr's mental capacity.
Late Thursday night, a NSFW video of the 65-year-old comedian was posted to her official YouTube page.
In the brief clip, which we've shared above, Barr looks rather disordered and distressed as she smokes a cigarette.
She also argues with a male producer about the editing of a previous video, one that was evidently spliced together from multiple shoots and showed Roseanne wearing different outfits.
Soon, the irritated actress/comedian brings up the since-deleted tweet in which she likened Jarrett, an African-American ex-advisor to President Obama, to an “ape.”
“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal. That’s what my tweet was about."
“I thought the bitch was white!” she then says, growing even louder. “Goddamnit, I thought the bitch was white. F-ck!”
This really is quite the minute-plus of footage.
In the past, Roseanne tried to defend herself in a somewhat more reserved manner.
“I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be,” she tweeted in May, for example, adding back then:
“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.”
Also in June, Barr gave a tearful interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast.
"I have to face that it hurt people,” she said.
“When you hurt people even unwillingly there’s no excuse. I don’t want to run off and blather on with excuses. But I apologize to anyone who thought, or felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean.
"It was my own ignorance, and there’s no excuse for that ignorance. I definitely feel remorse. I’ve lost everything. And I regretted it before I lost everything."
ABC has given the green light to The Connors, a spinoff sitcom that, we presume, will center around the death of Roseanne's long-running character.
