Roseanne Barr blames sleep aid for racist tweet after show cancelled

Barr tweeted on Tuesday night that fans should not defend her remark that former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes". Barr apologized and said she had been affected by the sleeping aid Ambien when she wrote the tweet.

Ambien's manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, lists warnings and precautions for the drug that include a section on "Abnormal Thinking and Behavioral Changes" - side effects that can include a lack of inhibition.

ABC has also made an effort to promote shows featuring people who are not neurotypical.

The pharmaceutical company behind Ambien is hitting back at Roseanne Barr for blaming a racist tweet on the prescription sedative.

After saying she thought it was "amazing" that ABC canceled her show, Whoopi addressed Roseanne directly. "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump tweeted. She also said she was leaving Twitter.

In her initial response to that tweet, Barr said, "Wow! unreal".

As previously reported, the star returned Tuesday evening for a round of tweeting in which she asked fans not to defend her or boycott ABC over the cancellation.

Barr initially tried to backtrack from the comments saying they were a joke, but appears to have changed her tone. Others believe that her personal comments on Twitter should not have impacted the sitcom.

She also retweeted a long post by Michael Fishman, who played her son, D.J. In his tweet, the actor bemoaned the impact of Barrs words on the cast and crew and said the shows story lines were often about inclusiveness.

Conservative activists regularly complain at Disney annual meetings about perceived liberal bias at the company's networks.

Barr has been tweeting for some 10 hours now and doesn't seem to show any sign of stopping.

She has a history of diving into political conspiracy theories on Twitter, and that's how she ended her Memorial Day weekend.

Before the controversial Jarret comment, Barr tweeted that Chelsea Clinton is married to billionaire philanthropist George Soros' nephew.
