Hours after Roseanne Barr swore off Twitter and her ABC show “Roseanne” was canceled, the star has returned to the platform.
“Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!” Barr wrote in a tweet. “I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.”
ABC canceled the revival of “Roseanne” after Barr posted a racist joke aimed at former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.
She also apologized personally to Jarrett.
“I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!” she wrote in a tweet to Jarrett.
In addition to the return tweet, Barr retweeted numerous messages of support and defenses of her original tweet, including from alt-right figures such as Jack Posobiec and Thomas Wictor.
Barr added that she would be on Joe Rogan’s podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” on Friday.
Barr deleted her tweet about Jarrett not long after posting it. She followed it up with an apology that read, “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste. I am now leaving Twitter.”
ABC released the following statement announcing the cancellation: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
