Roseanne Barr has cancelled a planned television interview, in favor of recording her own thoughts and explanations.
On Sunday, the actress announced she was set to do a TV interview “this week” and would share further details on Monday.
The news came as she thanked fans for their support following the controversy that has surrounded her since a racist tweet led to her firing and the cancellation of ABC's "Roseanne" reboot in May.
However, by Monday evening, Barr, 65, had backed out of the interview.
"After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans,” she explained on Twitter. “I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week -- the entire explanation of what happened & why!”
“I love you all -- sign up & get ready," she added.
The tweet was followed up by a 2015 clip from her web series,"Domestic Goddess: She’s So High."
