In a new interview released over the weekend, Roseanne Barr broke down in tears as she discussed the backlash she faced over a racially charged tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
"I horribly regret it," she declared on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's podcast. "I’ve lost everything. And I regretted it before I lost everything and I said to God, 'I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings, because I know I’ve done wrong. I’m willing to accept what the consequences are.' And I do. And I have."
Barr went on to insist she had no idea that Jarrett was black when she compared her to an ape.
She also said again that she was under the influence of Ambien when she tweeted the insult. "That’s no excuse, but that is what was real...I was impaired, you know," she claimed.
