It’s been almost two months since Roseanne lost the reboot of her wildly successful show because of a tweet. She finally speaks out and it’s a completely Roseanne response.
After Rosanne initially said that she had been Ambien-tweeting, she offered an apology. She said that she was sorry for ‘making a bad joke about her politics and her looks‘. It wasn’t enough. Her show was canceled and she will no longer be a part of a possible reboot.
Two days after the tweet, she made a tearful apology on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast. Audio available here.
Here’s what she said:
‘I’m a lot of things. I’m a loudmouth and all that stuff, but I’m not stupid, for God’s sake, and 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. And if people think that I did that it just kills me. I didn’t do that, although they think I did. And if they do think that I am so sorry that I — ya know, it was so unclear and stupid. I’m very sorry but I don’t think that, I never would do that.’
She told Rabbi Boteach that she regretted her tweet but will accept the consequences of her actions.
‘I’ve lost everything. And I regretted it before I lost everything and I said to God, “I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I’ve done wrong.” I’m willing to accept what the consequences are. And, I do. And I have.’
Earlier this month, the 65-year old comedienne said that she was not going to accept any interviews discussing the cancellation of Roseanne.
Apparently, she just can’t help but talk about the life-altering moment.
In a recent interview, she explains her tweet.
First, remember that everyone and their dog believed that it was a racist tweet. The mob on social media was out there with virtual torches and pitchforks.
Watch: (LANGUAGE WARNING)
‘I thought the b**ch was white! G*ddamnit! I thought the b**ch was white! F**k!’
Let’s take a step back, however, away from the rabid, outrage that bubbles over on social media and examine this for a second…
Before we do that, however, let’s be clear that racism is completely unacceptable. All racism is unacceptable. Always. There is no exception to this.
Remember, that this is Valerie Jarrett:
In an era where we are now supposed to judge people on the color of their skin and not the content of their character… can you sort of see how Roseanne could get that?
Jarrett was born in Iran… to African American parents. Did Roseanne have to know that before she tweeted? Perhaps she knew about the born in Iran part. She says in the video that she wanted to discuss Jarrett and the Iran Deal before she screams that she thought Jarrett was white.
Of course, looking at the star players in the Obama administration, it should have been obvious to Roseanne that Jarrett, with that coveted role as advisor to President Obama, couldn’t be white.
Here in the basement of the ClashDaily editorial office, we’ve always been dumbfounded that the focus was on the Planet of the Apes portion of the tweet and not on the Muslim Brotherhood portion of the tweet.
Theoretically, they should be equally problematic.
But hey, what do we know?
Well, we do know this…
The Left is going to go absolutely bat-guano crazy over this explanation of the tweet!
Can’t you just hear them?
‘OMG! Did Roseanne just assume Valerie Jarrett’s race?’
‘Just because she has light skin, it doesn’t mean she isn’t black!’
The real question is… which will be more offensive to the outrage machine on the Left?
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
