To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week. I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!

 
 

The interview will likely address the ongoing backlash against Barr, whose hit series Roseanne was canceled by ABC in May after Barr likened former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an “ape” in a tweet she later deleted. (She has since claimed that she didn’t know Jarrett is black — and that she was on Ambien while tweeting.)

The network has since greenlit a Roseanne spinoff without Barr.

Barr also tweeted a selfie on Sunday night, showing off lighter locks and writing, “New hair!”

Barr previously spoke out about the controversy in a June interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast.

“I don’t want to run off and blather on with excuses, but I apologize to anyone who … felt offended and who thought that I meant something that I, in fact, did not mean,” she said. “It was my own ignorance, and there’s no excuse for that ignorance.”

“I definitely feel remorse,” she added tearfully.
