Earlier in the evening during Barr's sit down interview with Hannity, the comedian claimed yet again that she believed Valerie Jarrett was white as a basis for her tweet saying "I didn't know she was African American, I assumed she was from Iran".

As a result, the actress said she was shocked when the tweet was not interpreted this way and that people called her racist.

"If one of you said something like that about me, that might hurt my feelings", Jarrett added.

She repeated her assertion that she did not know Jarrett was black when she likened Jarrett to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and a "Planet of the Apes" actor.

Though after apologizing, Barr also offered Jarrett the advice, "She's gotta get a new haircut, I mean seriously".

Jarrett appeared on the daytime talk show The View Wednesday and said she wasn't planning on watching Barr's interview. And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. "I've apologized a lot". "It was Memorial Day, I had 2 beers", she told Hannity. "I took a vow with my god that I would always fight extremism".

Demi Lovato’s reported overdose was meth, not heroin, new reports say
She captioned the video; "got you on my mind..." Sources close to the actor revealed that the news has left him utterly "shocked". Following the news of her overdose, celebrities and friends of Lovato took to social media to send their words of support.

Barr also discussed her political journey from the far left to what she feels is the center, pointing to extremism on both sides of the spectrum. "But I'm not going to let them tell me what I meant".

In another moment, she made fun of Jarrett's haircut after delivering a rambling non-apology that mostly seemed to blame Jarrett for being offended by the tweet in the first place.

Speaking on her firing from ABC, she says that the past two months have been "harsh", leading her to "hide in my mom's basement", fearful to head outdoors, adding it felt like she was in the Twilight Zone. It cost me everything, my life's work. "I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people which I think, 30 years of my work can attest to". -Middle Eastern policy and had no racial overtones.

Boteach repeatedly returned to the way that "Martin Luther King Jr., the greatest American of the twentieth century" had forgiven people who had been racist toward him.

Mr Trump, who had celebrated the comeback ratings for Barr at a campaign rally in March, reacted to her dismissal by complaining that he had never received an apology "for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC".

"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. Barr joked. "No, I'm kidding".
