Roseanne Barr Valerie Jarrett

Roseanne Barr refuses to back down after the severe rebuke she received when she sent out a racist tweet about former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett in May.

Roseanne was fired from her own show and the revamped TV series was cancelled after she tweeted a meme comparing Jarrett to a character from The Planet of the Apes.

The Roseanne Show was revived as The Conners with TV daughter Sara Gilbert as the star of the new series.

In a new video posted on Thursday, Roseanne appeared unhinged as she screamed that she thought Jarrett was a white woman.

According to PEOPLE, the clip is an excerpt from a longer interview that was recorded recently.

In the clip, an interviewer presses Roseanne to explain her tweet about Jarrett.

“I’m trying to talk about Iran!” Barr insists. “I’m trying to talk about … Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal! That’s what my tweet was about!”

“I know,” the interviewer replied. “You’ve explained this literally 300 times.”

Then an agitated Roseanne screams: “I thought the bitch was white! Goddamnit! I thought the bitch was white! F—k!”

Roseanne has previously said she didn’t know Jarrett was Muslim.
