Perhaps it's time to hire a crisis manager.
Roseanne Barr uploaded a YouTube video last night in which she became irate after the interviewer mentioned the tweet in which she compared former White House staffer ValerieJarrett to an ape—which many people, including Jarrett, perceived as racist. ABC swiftly firedBarr, canceled her eponymous show and announced it will be rebooted as The Connors. Barr, who puffed on a cigarette and rolled her eyes in the interview, was visibly agitated. "I'm trying to talk about Iran!" she said. "I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal!"
"I know," the interviewer said. "You've told me this 300 times."
"That's what my tweet was about!" Barr screamed.
"I know," the interviewer said. "You've explained this literally 300 times."
"I thought the bitch was white!" Barr yelled. "God dammit! I thought the bitch was white! F--k!"
