Updated On 30 May, 2018 Published On

Roseanne Barr is back to Twitter to say sorry again! After several hours of announcing that she is leaving the social media platform, the 65-year-old reality star took to Twitter Tuesday evening for an apology to Valerie Jarett and the cast and crew of now-canceled ABC sitcom, "Roseanne" for costing them their jobs.

The outspoken conservative wrote,

Don't feel sorry for me, guys!! I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.

On Friday, Barr also promoted her upcoming appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, where she is expected to talk about her show's cancellation.

Her TV sitcom Roseanne was canceled on Tuesday, May 29 after a massive backlash she received for a racist tweet she posted earlier in the morning about former U.S. President Barack Obama's former White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett.

Referring to Valerie, who is black and was born in Iran, Roseanne wrote in the since-deleted tweet, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

Shortly after her apology to the cast and crew on Tuesday evening, she tweeted at Jarrett directly, writing,

I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!

Here's the tweet, check it out.

In another tweet, she wrote,

Check it out.

She added another tweet Tuesday night, writing,

Later in the day, Channing Dungey, the ABC Entertainment President, said in a statement,

Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.

After the initial flood of controversy, the reality star took back her remarks on Twitter, writing, "I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter."

Shortly after that, she added,

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.
