WTF Moments from Roseanne Barr's 'Hannity' interview

Roseanne Barr disputes racist claims: 'I'm not that person' Roseanne Barr Sorry Valerie Jarrett Misunderstood Her “Political” Tweet, Tells Her To Get New Hairstyle

After a weak-ass apology to the woman who suffered Barr's original racist tweet - Valerie Jarrett, adviser to former President Barack Obama - the particularly un-funny comedian chose to double down on her lack of humor by... insulting Jarrett's hair?! The comedian also sat down for an interview with her longtime friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, at a New York City comedy club and stressed that the tweet was political and not racist.

"That is a tweet asking for accountability from the previous administration about the Iran deal, which Valerie Jarrett is the author of", she said. "And that was what was in my head".

Roseanne Barr appeared on Sean Hannity last night and, of course, they talked about her racist meltdown on Twitter and getting booted from her own show.

"My show was canceled before not even one advertiser was pulled out and I was labeled a racist", Barr says.

"I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt". And I never meant that and for that I apologize. He went on to say, "I just want to find out what it was all about, why it happened, the lead up to it, the aftermath of it". I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused, my ill-worded tweet.

Roseanne Barr has a lot to say about the new Roseanne spinoff, The Conners.

"Well, I think psychologically", Barr replied.

At another point, just before addressing Jarrett, Barr said, "I already have said I'm sorry for two months". "That's not a kind person", she said, referencing a photo shoot Barr did back in 2009 for the satirical Jewish magazine Heeb. I've apologised and explained and asked for forgiveness.

Actress Roseanne Barr waves on her arrival to the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., January 7, 2018.

Hannity devoted his entire, hourlong show Thursday to his talk with Barr.

Barr also addressed Jarrett directly and apologized for the tweets, advocating for a broader dialogue on race relations.

Barr claimed she was allowed 24 hours to correct a mistake - adding she wanted to make media appearances to explain her tweets, but that the network didn't allow her to do so.

This is a complete departure from the story Barr told in 1991, in which she alleged in an interview with People that her father "molested me until I left home at age 17".

Co-host Meghan McCain similarly expressed skepticism of embracing Roseanne, and she said the former sitcom star made it harder for her to convince people that Republicans aren't all crazed bigots.
