Ambien Tells Roseanne Drug Has No Racist Side Effects

Ambien Tells Roseanne Drug Has No Racist Side Effects

An attempted apology and promise to leave Twitter, which she has failed to do, were not enough to save the show.

Barr was also dropped by her talent agency, ICM Partners, shortly after ABC's announcement.

Trump is implying that he is the victim of a liberal media double standard.

Barr's tweet about Jarrett was hardly the first controversial message that the comedian has shared online, on Twitter or otherwise. Barr tweeted: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". Her TV daughter Sara Gilbert - who said on Tuesday that Barr's comments were "abhorrent" - was a frequent target of posts by Barr's supporters, including one who called Gilbert a "backstabber". He added, "I condemn these statements vehemently" and that her thoughts do not reflect his own "inclusive" views.

She also followed up with a tweet on Wednesday morning saying that she didn't blame Ambien for the tweet but "blamed myself", in response to a Twitter user suggesting she had blamed the drug.

"I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense - the person who's walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or run across the street", she said.

When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over". "I do have difficulty sleeping and melatonin is very natural, it's one little pill you take a half hour before you go to sleep, it puts you to sleep real good".

The original tweets have since been deleted, and Roseanne later wrote that she apologized by saying that her joke was in "bad taste".

Oddly, she later deleted all of her references to the medication.

Pharmaceutical giant Sanofi, the maker of Ambien, hit back. Barr's explanation was deemed laughable.

She also retweeted a long post by Michael Fishman, who played her son, D.J. In his tweet, the actor bemoaned the impact of Barr's words on the cast and crew and said the show's story lines were often about inclusiveness. I will handle my sadness the way I want to.

Some of her replies to fans clearly expressed how she feels.
