"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", Barr tweeted Wednesday, attempting to defend herself against an onslaught of criticism. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U [sic]".
Barr, who has apologized several times, has insisted that she didn't know Jarrett was black when she fired off a tweet with a "Planet of the Apes" insult. That didn't sit well with a lot of Roseanne fans, especially one of her biggest, most outspoken and (admittedly) most powerful fans - Donald J. Trump. When the Twitter user pointed to her previous tweets-and the headlines they inspired-she wrote, "i blamed myself. stop lying".
"I am exhausted of being smeared", Barr tweeted on Thursday. I am disappointed in her actions, to say the least'.
Barr's comment, which has now been deleted, was sent in response to a tweet that accused Jarrett, an African American, of helping "hide" misdeeds for the Obama administration.
It's been a whirlwind 24 hours for Roseanne Barr, whose hit show "Roseanne" was canceled yesterday by ABC after the star's racist tweet that was directed at Valerie Jarrett, a former President Barack Obama aide.
The deplorables are standing strong and banding together behind Roseanne Barr to save her cancelled show. "I should have known better".
Barr also retweeted a post that suggested the move was payback by the Obamas after she mocked the couple's $50 million Netflix deal with a hashtag that trended last week.
Taking to Twitter, Trump wanted to know why the United States network said sorry to Jarrett, but not to him for statements that were made on the network about him.
"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said.
Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC.
Discussing Barr's recent remarks - and the media scrutiny surrounding them - he said, "I don't know anything about it". She has expressed sorrow for her castmates, who are out of a job, while also blasting Gilbert and others for "throwing her under the bus" with public their public admonishments. "She's not going to go on TV and say these things".
Tom Arnold believes that deep down Roseanne Barr was looking to self-destruct.
