As a result, the actress said she was shocked when the tweet was not interpreted this way and that people called her racist.
Roseanne Barr appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Thursday night, in her first television appearance since a racist tweet torpedoed her career. "I've apologized a lot. And they can't take that away from me, no matter what's happened".
Fox News host Sean Hannity, 56, scored the TV scoop of the year (so far) on July 26 and we couldn't take our eyes off it.
Later in the segment, she tried again while addressing Jarrett directly.
"I'd tell more jokes about myself than I do anybody else, because to me, comedy is very personal, and that's what makes it amusing", she explained.
"It cost me everything", she said.
"Valerie, let's discuss this", Barr said later, looking at the camera. And, you know I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt.
I respect Mesut Ozil's Germany decision, says Arsenal boss Unai Emery
The Turkish Football Federation also issued a statement, saying it "offers its full support" to Ozil and his family. Ozil has not commented about his decision since his arrival in Singapore on Monday with Arsenal.
Hannity needs a new hair style too, the comic threw in, telling him to stop parting his hair in the middle.
During the interview Boteach said he felt "bothered" that Barr didn't feel forgiven for her tweet after issuing her apology, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"I walked away from that show, despite the fact that I had a contract which protected me from if I got in trouble with tweets", Barr said.
This is a developing story.
Barr's tweet caused a storm of outrage and the ABC network swiftly canceled the revival of her top-rated comedy series "Roseanne" about a working-class American family in the era of President Donald Trump. "You were on Ambien", that she had been drinking, and that, "you once said to Larry King you suffer from multiple personality disorder".
"Could you do your job?" she asked Hannity.
ABC has since confirmed it will broadcast a spin-off called "The Connors" - featuring cast members including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf - after Barr relinquished any creative or financial involvement.
Barr, who is Jewish, got emotional at the idea of being perceived as racist by her close circle's children, which includes African-Americans and Asians, nothing that "Jews get around".
The actress claimed she fought extremism, but fears it is growing, adding, "I feel like both the left and the right have marginalized the middle, and it's just too insane".
