The star of ABC’s Roseanne, actress Roseanne Barr, was famously kicked off her one show after she decided to fire off a slew of racist tweets. This morning she offered up a video purportedly explaining her actions but instead dug herself an even deeper hole.
One of her now notorious tweets compared former Obama administration advisor Valerie Jarrett to an “ape,” while the other accused Chelsea Clinton of being a secret member of the George Soros family and repeated a long-debunked anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about Soros collaborating with Nazis during the Second World War.
Though Roseanne has apologized for the remarks, she clearly hasn’t gotten over the humiliation and the criticism she’s endured for her hateful remarks – or else has become accustomed to it and desperately wants to jump back in the spotlight.
There’s little else that can explain this profane video that she herself posted to her YouTube account, in which she literally screams about Jarrett and offers up the worst kind of excuse for her actions.

The hatred and the rage in her voice would indicate that this is in fact about race and that Barr feels that she’s been treated unfairly for her prejudiced statements, which is a common theme among right-wingers who have found themselves in hot water for their racist remarks.
Safe to say that Barr is not dealing with the fallout very well.
