Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for tweet; drug maker replies

But the comedian was back on the platform soon after, posting: "I'm exhausted of being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse".

"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me", she wrote.

She cited "ambien tweeting" as an excuse, but added: "i went 2 far & do not want it defended - it was egregious Indefensible".

The drug maker Sanofi took to social media to say that "while all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

She zig-zagged between apologizing for her remarks and retweeting memes that made her apology sound insincere.

In a post re-tweeted by Barr, Hopkins said: "I have found the more I am fired, the busier I become".

On Thursday, he targeted the executive again on Twitter: "Iger, where is my call of apology?" Tweeted Trump: "Maybe I just didn't get the call".

"Roseanne" was an instant hit when it returned this spring after a two-decade hiatus.

The White House has accused the entertainment industry of "hypocrisy" over its condemnation of Roseanne Barr following a racist tweet. And then they both agreed that they didn't want Mike Pence to become president.

(When the show first aired, he called to congratulate Barr on its high ratings.) He did issue one tweet that addressed the matter at an oblique angle."Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that 'ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr.

Representatives for Disney and ABC News did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

But Sanofi, the company that makes Ambien, was not having a bar of Barr's bullshit. She wrote that racist tweet that forced ABC to ax the show. "It represented the work of hundreds of talented people".

Emma Kenney is no longer a star on Roseanne, but the teen actress seems to have fond memories of her brief time on the ABC reboot. It's highly unlikely that a network would risk it, however, if Barr remains part of the show.In part that is because celebrities face greater consequences for behavior outside political norms than do politicians themselves, says Kathryn Cramer Brownell, an assistant professor of history at Purdue University and author of "Showbiz Politics: Hollywood in American Political Life". Barr also has a history of spreading freaky conspiracy theories.

Yet people have tried to defend Barr by putting ABC's cancellation in liberal-conservative terms. Clinton herself corrected Barr online.

That one tweet, however, has brought attention to Barr's other outrageous tweets, which have targeted former Obama official Susan Rice and George Soros.

Jarrett's name came up in response to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory.

The whole debacle arose on Monday when Barr proclaimed that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes" "had a baby", it would be Jarrett.

Three weeks earlier, "Roseanne" was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers. The streaming site has removed every episode of the Roseanne revival. "More Networks and "papers" should do the same with their Fake News!"

Rhimes was among those who took to Twitter to praise Dungey for taking what was seen as decisive action in canceling "Roseanne".

There was also CBS's firing of Charlie Sheen from "Two and a Half Men" during his freakish spate of behaviour.

In another tweet, Gilbert wrote that it is "incredibly sad and hard for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love - one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member". A way to keep the cast and crew together in some way?
