Roseanne Barr addressed ABC canceling the reboot of Roseanne for her "egregious and unforgivable" tweet about Valerie Jarrett in a video statement. Barr said she thought former President Obama's closest White House aide was "white" when she likened her to a character from Planet of the Apes.
Barr said she was willing to go on daytime TV shows like The View to explain her Jarrett comment.
"Instead what happened was about 40 minutes after that my show was canceled before even one advertiser pulled out and I was labeled a racist. Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple. It's because I voted for Donald Trump and that is not allowed in Hollywood," Barr said.
