Fans Rally Behind Roseanne After She Posts Rage-Filled Video About Racist Tweet: 'I Thought The Bitch Was White'

“If Roseanne can be kicked off her show for comments she made on Twitter. Then the cast of the View should be FIRED!!” a fan wrote.

Fans rallied behind Roseanne Barr Thursday after she shared a rage-filled video of her screaming about Valerie Jarrett.

It seems the disgraced TV star is tired of apologizing for a racist tweet that compared former Obama adviser Jarrett, who is African American, to "Planet of the Apes." The tweet had severe repercussions, resulting in the cancellation of Barr’s highly successful reboot of her 1990s show and wide-spread criticism.

Now, in what appears to be a self-produced video, the comedian responds to her son Jake who is interviewing her.

"I’m trying to talk about Iran," Barr screamed. "I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal. That’s what my tweet was about."

She then begins to rage, letting out a primal scream, as she yells: "I thought the bitch was white! Goddamnit, I thought the bitch was white. F—k!"

The video comes after Roseanne backed out of a TV interview due to lack of control over the message.

Warning: Video Below Contains Graphic Language

The former "Roseanne" star, who returned to television to incredible ratings before she singlehandedly got the revived sitcom cancelled, said that a TV interview would be "too stressful and untrustworthy for me and my fans."

Over a week ago she let fans know, "I’m going to film it myself and post it on my YouTube channel"

"The entire explanation of what happened and why! I love you all — sign up and get ready," she tweeted.

While many found Thursday’s Youtube video disturbing and an even further backslide in the star’s rapidly eroding public image, many fans took to Twitter in support of Barr and slammed "Roseanne’s" former network ABC. Many cited an incident from Thursday morning, which they felt illustrated a liberal bias.

Thursday on "The View," co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated argument with Fox News’ judge Jeanine Pirro after she accused Goldberg of having "Trump derangement syndrome." The talk show host threw Pirro off the set and said "I’m done."

Some of Barr’s fans believed that since ABC fired the actress and cancelled her show, they needed to give Goldberg the same treatment.
