Barr has since offered several defenses for her choice of words - which compared Jarrett to Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood - including insisting she was misunderstood, under the influence of Ambien, and repeatedly contending that she didn't know Jarrett was black.

During her conversation with Sean Hannity, the comedienne reasserted her view that her tweet was about politics, not race.

Barr's tweet sparked outrage on social media in May and led ABC to cancel the reboot of her self-titled show about a working-class American family.

"Here's what I have to say, she said, when pressed for an apology by Hannity, before offering a rambling explanation about "globalism", claiming her tweet was making a political point about Iran, instead of a racist one".

"I walked away from that show, despite the fact that I had a contract which protected me from if I got in trouble with tweets", Barr said.

Since outspoken Trump supporter Roseanne Barr was sacked from the ABC show bearing her name, some conservatives have been eager to see liberals face similar repercussions.

A supporter of US President Donald Trump, Barr further said: "I'm not a racist and the people who voted for Trump, they're not racist either, and Trump isn't a racist, sorry". "I made a mistake, obviously". She described her shock when she first found out that the tweet had been interpreted as a racial epithet.

He said: "Every club, do what they believe, and I understand it". "I am confident we can build on last season". Liverpool believe they need these players and spend this money so I'm not judging what they're doing.

Speaking on her firing from ABC, she says that the past two months have been "harsh", leading her to "hide in my mom's basement", fearful to head outdoors, adding it felt like she was in the Twilight Zone. "And then everybody started saying I was a racist, which is like the worst thing that you can call a Jewish person, especially one who, like me, grew up with Holocaust survivors". "I never meant to hurt anybody".

Barr also discussed her political journey from the far left to what she feels is the center, pointing to extremism on both sides of the spectrum.

Unfortunately, in typical Roseanne fashion, the comedian didn't stop there, saying, "Plus I'd tell her she's gotta get a new haircut, I mean seriously, she needs a new haircut".

Boteach has interviewed Barr extensively following her tweet scandal. I was so sad that people thought [the tweet] was racist.

'I've apologised a lot, ' Barr said.

She said the tweet referencing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett - "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj" - was a bid to seek accountability for the 2015 global agreement limiting Iran's nuclear program.
