"But no, I did not know she (Jarrett) was black", she said.
Barr has been an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump and the return of her show, which tells the story of a white, working class family in IL, was seen as a reflection of the mood of many who voted for him. "I made a mistake, obviously".
Mo'Nique said she'd like to see Barr and Jarrett "come together". "That's what was in my head".
When Hannity asked Barr about her public apology for the tweet, she said, "Well, I've apologized a lot". And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. "I apologize. I never meant to hurt anybody". I mean, seriously, she needs a new haircut'.
"I didn't want to cost anybody their jobs", she told Hannity. And for that I apologize. "I like the middle way", she told the Fox News host. "But there was a white woman named Roseanne Barr that showed up for me".
"That is a tweet about asking for accountability from the previous administration about the Iran Deal", she added, "which Valerie Jarrett is the author of".
Barr says the incident led to her departure from Twitter. "Don't assume you know what I meant, because I think you don't know what I meant, and I would like to make it clearer to you what I did mean".
She did not clarify what she believed was Jarrett's involvement in the agreement.
"I was so sad, and I'm so sad that anyone thinks that of me", Barr told Hannity.
Watch the interview with Sean Hannity below. After bragging that the Roseanne reboot "kicked everybody's ass in the ratings" and that ABC "should be so lucky that they'll ever get anywhere near that", she also stated, "They can't take that away from me, no matter what's happened". Appearing on The View Wednesday, she said "this isn't what keeps me up at night", referencing more pressing nationwide crises than racial epithets hurled by an aging sitcom star.
ABC subsequently canceled the namesake show hours later, with ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey referring to Barr's remarks as "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".
