Roseanne Barr on Losing TV Show: ‘I’m an Idiot but I’m No Racist’
June 25, 2018
Roseanne Barr broke down crying as she spoke out for the first time since she was fired for making a tweet many saw as racist. “There is no excuse for that ignorance but I didn't mean it the way they're saying I meant it. I never would do that. I have loved ones who are African-American. I can't stand it. I made a huge error,” she said on Rabbi Schmuley Boteach’s podcast over the weekend. The rabbi says he wanted her to tell her side of the story.
