Roseanne Barr has confirmed she's cancelled her tell-all TV interview and will instead record her own thoughts on her YouTube channel.
In May, Barr's revived sitcom was axed following online outrage over an offensive tweet that attacked former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The 65-year-old actress had initially planned to appear on TV to discuss the cancellation of her show and the subsequent fallout, but she has now described the prospect of a TV interview as ''too stressful''.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: ''After a lot of thought, I decided that I won't be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans. 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 recently announced plans to make a spin-off series of the sitcom without the involvement of Roseanne.
The American network said that the 10-episode series, which has the working title The Conners, will include John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky) and Michael Fishman (D.J.).
In the new series the Connors "are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before."
According to ABC executive producer, Tom Werner, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new outing.
''Tom Werner and Roseanne Barr have reached an agreement that will allow Werner Entertainment to produce a spin-off of the Roseanne series for ABC without Barr's further creative or financial participation,'' the statement said.
It is unclear how Barr's character will be written out of the show but the network said it will be "a sudden turn of events".
