(CNN)Roseanne Barr called the racially offensive tweet that triggered her firing a “big misunderstanding” and “a big mistake,” reiterating that she was “sad that people thought it was racist” during a rambling, tearful, wide-ranging TV interview.
“I’ve apologized a lot,” Barr told Sean Hannity on his Fox News Channel program, before — at the host’s prodding — directly saying she was “sorry that you thought I was racist” to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, the target of the tweet that prompted ABC to cancel “Roseanne.” (The network has since revived the show without her.)
Barr reiterated that the tweet was intended to be political, not racial, but stopped short of repeating her recent claim that she was fired because she’s a Trump supporter.
Her explanations have shifted almost since…
