Roseanne Barr says tweet "cost me everything"

Barr also briefly explained a video posted on her YouTube channel earlier this week, in which she yelled her explanation for the Jarrett tweet.

Barr has been an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump and the return of her show, which tells the story of a white, working class family in IL, was seen as a reflection of the mood of many who voted for him.

"My sister made a mistake and she said something I know she wishes she could take back", Mo'Nique said. "That's what was in my head", said Barr.

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

"I'm sorry that you feel harm and hurt, I never meant that". "Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple: Because I voted for Donald Trump, and that is not allowed in Hollywood". Though after apologizing, Barr also offered Jarrett the advice, "She's gotta get a new haircut, I mean seriously". Which I think 30 years of my work can attest to.

'Well, I kind of think I am, ' Barr said.

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".

Barcelona praised him as a "daring, pacey forward with an ability to shoot from distance" who has "a great future ahead of him". Malcom Filipe Silva da Oliveira, now on the books of Bordeaux , will soon become Barcelona's third signing of the summer.

In June, ABC announced a Roseanne spin-off that will not feature Barr.

Including someone who looks like me-her skin tone looks like mine-I didn't know she was african american. She said she was stunned by the negative reaction to the tweet, which Hannity noted was almost universal.

On walking away from TV's No. 1-rated, most watched comedy: "I was excited to show that [the Conner] family is [now] multiracial and also lives next door to Muslims whose ideas they don't agree with".

She said: "I hope you'll try to understand me and accept my apologies for my part in this big misunderstanding'".

Roseanne Barr sat for her first TV interview since she was sacked and had her ABC sitcom "Roseanne" canceled over a racist tweet. "I made a mistake and I paid the price for it", Barr told Hannity. "We need to talk about race and everything that's connected to it", she said. And in the eyes of most Hannity viewers, Barr is probably forgiven tonight-if not applauded. "And because of that fact, I took a vow to my religion to my god that I would always fight extremism on either side, right or left".

Shmuley went on to call the ABC sitcom "a blessing" and a show that "succeeded for Democrats and Republicans", before addressing Barr "as a person".
