Roseanne Barr has a strong and very simple message for her critics, Fuck off!

The shamed comedian was fired from her hit ABC sit-com in May after making racist remarks about former Obama administrator Valerie Jarrett – whom she attempted to apologise to during an interview with Sean Hannity today.

However, the 65-year-old actress faced even more criticism for making a joke about Jarretts haircut in the interview.

Roseanne had a response for anyone who took exception to her apology though.

They hate jokes. They should fuck off, she told TMZ.

Speaking directly to Jarrett in the interview, which aired on Barr said: If shes watching, Im so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist.

Because it wasnt. It was political. Im sorry for the misunderstanding that caused, my ill-worded tweet. And, you know, Im sorry that you feel harmed and hurt. I never meant that. And for that I apologise.

I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything about an entire race of people, which I think 30 years of my work can attest to.

She added: Plus, Id tell her shes got to get a new haircut. Seriously.

Jarrett has largely avoided commenting on the controversy, stating on a recent appearance on The View how this isnt what keeps me up at night.

Asked to comment on the video posted by Barr where she yells, I thought that bitch was white, Jarret simply responded: Roseanne who?

ABC cancelled the Roseanne reboot in May following the tweet, with the network now planning a spin-off revolved around the supporting characters provisionally titled The Connors.
