Roseanne Barr reportedly poured her heart out in a mea culpa with a rabbi radio host two days before she ditched a planned interview to talk about the racist comments that got her show cancelled.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barr called into New Jersey-based Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s show, offering an emotional and rambling apology for the tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, to an ape.

“She was sobbing and very apologetic about the whole thing,” THR reported, quoted an unnamed source.

On Friday, popular podcast host Joe Rogan — whom Barr had planned to interview about the social media outburst — tweeted she “was not doing well” and had gone “radio silent.”

According to Mediate, the same day she spoke to Boteach, Barr, who is Jewish, tweeted that she’d begged for her top-rated television show not to be cancelled, and lamented her pain, posting: “They won’t stop ’til I die. I fear-pray for me.”

Mediate posted screen grabs of the now-deleted tweets.
