"You were on Ambien", that she had been drinking, and that, "you once said to Larry King you suffer from multiple personality disorder". And I never meant that and for that I apologize. She said she was stunned by the negative reaction to the tweet, which Hannity noted was almost universal. "And then everybody started saying I was a racist, which is like the worst thing that you can call a Jewish person, especially one who, like me, grew up with Holocaust survivors".
"I'm not a racist and the people who voted for Trump, they're not racist either, and Trump isn't a racist, sorry". And I went into the whole discussion of racism and that blew my mind because it was so much what the show I was doing was about.
But, in watching a once-great sitcom star fail to really explain the racist outburst that ruined her career, viewers have seen all they need to know.
"I made a mistake", Barr said of the original tweet, after a bit of prodding from Hannity. I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people, which I think thirty years of my work can attest to. My life's work. Everything.
"I was allowed under my contract to have 24 hours to correct any mistakes".
'Address her and not just her, but people in the community who are so outraged about it. Address them from your heart and tell them, ' Hannity said.
When asked what her reaction was in the aftermath of posting the tweet, the comedian said, "The first thing was shock that they were saying it's racial when it's political", noting that she disagreed with Jarrett for her views on Iran. And I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt. And for that I apologize.
She did, however, sign off on the spinoff, explaining that she "thought it was part of what was put before me to do" and felt terrible for people losing their jobs. "I like the middle way", she told the Fox News host.
Her explanations have shifted nearly since the controversy began. "This isn't what keeps me up at night". "Instead, what happened, about 40 minutes after that, my show was canceled before even one advertiser pulled out, and I was labeled a racist", she said on her YouTube video.
"Abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values", ABC Entertainment chief Channing Dungey said in describing Barr's tweet and announcing the show's cancellation just days after Barr headlined the network's upfront presentation.
