Roseanne Barr Update: Screams ‘I Thought The B–––h Was White’ In New Video
In a newly released video of Roseanne Barr, the fallen sitcom star appears to be agitated while speaking to a male producer regarding the editing of a previous video. Soon, the conversation led to the infamous Valerie Jarrett tweet, in which Barr likened her to an “ape.” The 65-year-old comedian began claiming the tweet was alluding to the Iran nuclear deal, then yelling, “I thought the b–––h was white!”
The NSFW video is about a minute long and the camera never cut away from Barr, who continually sighed and painfully touched her face. She also kept a cigarette in her hand, often smoking it throughout the conversation.
“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal. That’s what my tweet was about,” Barr screamed. “I thought the b–––h was white! Goddamnit, I thought the b––h was white. F–––!”
The video, posted late Thursday night, comes after Barr announced that she will no longer participate in TV interviews, only posting her own content to her YouTube channel.
After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans. I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why! I love you all-sign up & get ready.

Now, there’s the question of whether or not Barr was showing her true emotion or simply utilizing her acting skills to create more publicity for herself. What we know for sure is that Barr can’t decide why she wrote the tweet and what it was “supposed” to mean.
Though the tweet canceled her nationally-ranked TV series, Roseanne, ABC greenlit the Roseanne-less reboot temporarily named The Conners to take the original show’s timeslot this upcoming fall.
