Turns out Roseanne Barr isn’t giving another TV interview after all

After hinting she would do an additional TV interview, Roseanne Barr has decided that might not be the best idea.

The former ABC star explained on Twitter on Monday evening why she will no longer speak on television in the wake of the network canceling the revival of her hit TV show, “Roseanne,” in May.

“After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews,” Barr wrote. “I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why!”

Barr worries any interviews would be “too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans.”

Barr, 65, changed her mind after announcing Sunday that she would have an additional interview separate from the one she recently conducted with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

On May 25, Barr made racist remarks on Twitter about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, comparing her to the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.” ABC promptly canceled “Roseanne” and has since announced plans for a spinoff, “The Conners,” without Barr.

Barr has apologized for her remarks, but clearly isn’t going down without a fight, telling her fans to “sign up and get ready.”
