Actress Roseanne Barr is making a splash in the news again, and yes, it does involve a fresh response about the infamous tweet concerning former White House aide Valerie Jarrett.
In case you don’t recall, Barr — a Trump supporter — ended up getting the second season of her highly successful rebooted TV series cancelled after making a comment about Jarrett that many deemed highly offensive and racist.
The consequences of running afoul of the rabid left-wingers in Hollywood was swift, with the cancellation happening within the span of just a few hours.
Barr posted a video on her YouTube channel that is filled with typical Roseanne usage of profanity as she addresses the whole situation. Again, this contains profanity. You’ve been warned.
In a new video posted on Thursday to her YouTube channel, Barr is seen as she talks to a producer. She looks a bit disheveled and is smoking a cigarette. The two have an increasingly heated discussion, with Barr eventually growing exasperated.
“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett, about the Iran deal!” Barr yells. “That’s what my tweet was about! I thought the b**** was white, god**** it! I thought the b**** was white! F***!” [Ed. note — the asterisks are ours.]
Barr, who is Jewish, also said her tweet was a commentary on anti-Semitism. “Rod Serling wrote ‘Planet of The Apes.’ It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to — the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.”
She later said she “didn’t mean what they think I meant … But I have to face that it hurt people. 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.”
Whether or not Roseanne actually meant what she said, there’s two things to take away from this whole situation. One, if you say something that is offensive to the radical left in this country, you might as well put your head between your knees and kiss your butt goodbye, because your career is over.
Two, if you screw up and misspeak you aren’t going to be allowed to have an opportunity to defend yourself, to explain your words and actions, so be prepared for immediate and swift retribution without a fair trial by a jury of your peers, culturally speaking.
Here’s to hoping the whole mess gets straightened out and everyone involved moves on with their lives.
