In June, ABC announced The Conners, a revival to replace Roseanne minus the creative and financial input of Barr.

Barr told host Sean Hannity her tweet was meant to address US-Iran nuclear policy and not Jarrett's ethnicity.

Barr then added: "Plus, I'd tell her she's got to get a new haircut, seriously".

"I was so sad that people thought it was racist", she added. "I never meant that and I apologise for saying anything negative about an entire race of people".

If she's watching, I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought that my tweet was racist because it wasn't, it was political. But also said that she had been wrongly villainized in the media.

"You also once said you take three kinds of anti-depressants every day", Hannity persevered. "Her skin tone is like mine, and I'm brown - I didn't know she was African-American".

Roseanne Barr, the embroiled television star whose namesake show was canceled after she tweeted racist sentiments about a former Obama administration official, said Thursday night that she's not a racist.


At one point, Hannity gives her the chance to speak directly to Jarrett.

Later in the live podcast she claimed that her axing off the sitcom was a long time coming and that ABC wanted her off the show for some time. And I went into the whole discussion of racism and that blew my mind because it was so much what the show I was doing was about. "I could fight this".

"In your circle?" Barr said, surprised.

'That's why I'm allowing this podcast. The comment had generated huge backlash and led to the cancellation of her U.S. comedy show "Roseanne". "Martin Luther King said two things about forgiveness: He said... forgiveness is not an occasional act, it's a constant attitude, and... when we've lost the capacity to forgive, we've lost the capacity to love". 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.

Jarrett was born in Iran to American parents and lived in Shiraz for six years. "I would tell her she needs a new haircut".

The actress claimed she fought extremism, but fears it is growing, adding, "I feel like both the left and the right have marginalized the middle, and it's just too insane".

The comedian said she was "shocked" that "everybody started saying I was racist, which is like the worst thing you can call a Jewish person, especially one like me that worked with Holocaust survivors".
