Roseanne Barr to explain her tweets on her YouTube channel as "TV interviews are stressful and untrustworthy"
Change of plans for Roseanne as she ditches televised interview for YouTube. Be ready next week for an explanation of what happened and why straight from the horse's mouth.
Roseanne Barr is tired of the media so much so that the actress has now decided to take matters into her own hands. On Sunday (July 8), Roseanne had tweeted that she would be doing a television interview in order to explain the racist tweets that cost her the role in ABC's hit sitcom 'Roseanne'. “To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love — who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week. I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!” she said at that time. However, it looks she like Roseanne had a change of thought overnight as the next day she announced she will not be doing any more television interviews.
“After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans,” she tweeted Monday night. “I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why! I love you all-sign up & get ready," she noted. Roseanne made her YouTube channel in 2006 and there is not a lot that the actress has posted from the time of its inception.
The last video that Roseanne had posted on her channel was about a year ago. The actress has nearly 16k followers on her YouTube page but looking at how she has announced she will be talking about the tweets, she sure is expected to get a lot more followers than the ones she has at present.
Roseanne recently appeared on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's podcast where she confessed that she regretted the words she used to describe former President Barack Obama's aide Valerie Jarrett on social media. Roseanne tried to convince listeners that she did not intend to hurt anyone. “God, it’s really hard to say all of this,” she said. “I didn’t mean what they think I meant, and that’s what’s so painful. But I have to face that this hurt people -- and when you hurt people, even unwittingly, there’s no excuse, so I don’t want to blabber off on excuses. I apologize to anyone who felt offended and thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean to my own ignorance.”
In her tweet which has since been deleted, Roseanne said if “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” The actress admitted that there is a lot of "remorse" that she feels following the incident. “I’m a lot of things. I’m a loudmouth and all that stuff, but I’m not stupid, for God’s sake," she confessed. "I never would have wittingly called any black person… say they are a monkey. I never would do that! And I didn’t do that."
Roseanne pointed out that her actions had made her a "hate magnet". While the actress seems to regret the words she used, ABC has already moved on. ABC announced that they will continue the show without Roseanne in it and the show is set to be titled as 'The Conners'.
