Actress Barr feels like ‘hate magnet’

In a tearful interview, Roseanne Barr said she has made herself a ‘‘hate magnet’’ in the fallout over her racist tweet.

Barr recorded a podcast interview with her longtime friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who on Sunday published an edited transcript and recording of the conversation. In the interview, Barr claims she “never would have wittingly called any black person a monkey.”

Barr, whose show Roseanne has been canceled, said she knows she’s done wrong, “but they don’t ever stop. They don’t accept my apology, or explanation.’’ She has blamed the sleep drug Ambien for the tweet about Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett.
