Sobbing Roseanne Barr: 'I Made Myself a Hate Magnet'

Taking responsibility for the "ignorance" of her controversial tweet that led to ABC's cancellation of "Roseanne," an apologetic, and at-times sobbing, Roseanne Barr offered regret to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's podcast she made herself "a hate magnet, and as a Jew it's just horrible."

"I didn't mean what they think I meant, and that's what's so painful, but I have to face that it hurt people," she told the rabbi in an interview recorded just days after the tweet but published in the podcast only recently. "When you hurt people, even unwittingly, there's no excuse. I don't want to run off and blather on with excuses.

"But I apologize to anyone who thought, or felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean to my own ignorance, and there's no excuse for that ignorance."

Roseanne, who called herself a rabbi of sorts, spoke later during the 35-minute podcast about repentance, remorse and her Jewish values.

"You have to feel remorse, not just repentance," she told Boteach. "That's just a step toward feeling remorse. And when you feel remorse you have to make recompense . . . I definitely feel remorse."

At that point in the interview, Roseanne broke down, saying nothing while she audibly sobbed.

"I'm a lot of things, a loud mouth and all that stuff, but I'm not stupid for God's sake," she then continued between crying breaths. "I never would have wittingly called any black person, say they are a monkey. I just wouldn't do that. I didn't do that. And people think that I did that and it just kills me."

Minutes later, Roseanne attempted to straighten her interview demeanor, saying "I've got to get ahold of myself here."

ABC announced this week a show tentative called "The Conners" will resume as a spinoff of "Roseanne" and will not include the gaslighted actress either on air or with financial ties.

"I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from 'Roseanne,'" Barr said in a statement. "I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved."
