Roseanne Barr has had a change of heart about doing a tell-all television interview.

On Sunday, the comedian took to Twitter to tell fans she’d be sitting down this week for her first TV interview since ABC canceled Roseanne in May.

Now Barr says the interview isn’t happening.

“After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans,” she tweeted Monday night. “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.”

ABC fired Barr after she went on a tweetstorm and made a racist comment describing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is black, as an ape.

On June 21, the network announced plans to move forward with The Conners, a spinoff of the series, without Barr. The show will premiere in the fall.
