Roseanne Barr is not satisfied with her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett as she defends her action again.

Barr promised to release her own explanation after a series of interviews and her apology to Jarrett when the controversy first erupted in May.

In the short clip, Barr looks disordered and distressed as she smokes a cigarette while arguing with a male producer about the editing of a previous video — one that was apparently cut together from multiple shots and showed Roseanne wearing different outfits.

Soon, the agitated star brings up the since-deleted tweet in which she likened Jarrett, a black former advisor to Barack Obama, to an “ape.”

“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal. That’s what my tweet was about,” Barr screamed.

“I thought the bitch was white!” she said, getting even louder. “Goddamnit, I thought the bitch was white. F—!”

The video was a far cry from the other comments Barr has made about the tweet in the wake of the backlash. She first appeared repentant, claiming that she didn’t know Jarrett is black and that she was on Ambien while tweeting.

Barr also defended herself from accusations of racism. “I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be,” she tweeted in May. “One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me.”

I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me.

She later explained that her tweet — which described Jarrett as a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes — was actually commentary on anti-Semitism.

“Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism,” Barr tweeted. “That is what my tweet referred to – the antisemitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.”
