ABC Apologized To Jarrett, But Not For 'HORRIBLE' Things About Me!

Roseanne Barr continued her apologies Wednesday morning on Twitter, one day after ABC canceled her hit sitcom.

Sanofi, the company that manufactures Ambien, responded on Twitter Wednesday that "racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

"ABC chose to cancel their highest-rated show, "Roseanne", following a tweet in which Roseanne compared an African-American woman, a former adviser to President Obama, to an ape, which did not sit well with ABC management or anyone with a brain, really", Kimmel explained.

'Wow! unreal, ' wrote Barr, who had confessed in earlier interviews to the hard job Gilbert had of trying to rein in her impulse to tweet offensive comments.

In another deleted tweet, Barr said of the incident that "it was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting".

Later, Barr denied that she was putting the blame on Ambien, saying it was "just an explanation not an excuse". Barr, who insisted she is "moving on", deleted that tweet, too. She wrote of Sykes, "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show". "Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, "the talk" as we call it".

"Hey guys, don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but... losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more", Barr wrote. "Maybe I just didn't get the call?" tweeted the President.

Soon after that, Barr's talent agency dropped her from its client list and Viacom announced rerun episodes of "Roseanne" will no longer be shown on that family of networks.

Discredited conspiracy theories portraying Soros - who is Jewish and was 9 years old when World War II began - as a Nazi collaborator have become right-wing internet staples. On Monday, Barr regurgitated a rumor that Clinton had married a nephew of Soros - a rumor that was popularized by actor and Trump supporter Scott Baio shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

More than 18 million people on average have watched the reboot of "Roseanne" this season, according to Nielsen Co.
