Roseanne Barr blames Ambien: ‘I’m not a racist, just an idiot’

Roseanne Barr and John Goodman in a promo

Actor John Goodman opened up about the cancellation of "Roseanne" - by saying he'd like to stay silent.

"People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world".

ABC chose to cancel "Rosanne" on Tuesday and then suspended its "For Your Consideration" Emmy campaign the following day.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump's tweet Wednesday was meant to point out media bias against him.

"Roseanne has said herself that she does not want what she says to overshadow the show in any way, and I do hope that she will continue to be thoughtful about what she shares on social media going forward", ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in the same article.

She tweeted, "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".

And after blaming the sleep medication for the Twitter rant, Barr also turned to a surprising target - her "Roseanne" team.

Not one to shy away from the Twitterverse, US President Donald Trump even jumped in on the conversation by criticizing Disney CEO Bob Iger, who supported ABC's decision to cut ties with the 2018 revival of the late 1980s-90s sitcom, "Roseanne".

Barr, 65, later apologised and deleted the tweet but ABC said that her comment about President Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, who is black, was "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC".

It advises potential users to talk to their doctors about Ambien, as calls to the police to warn them about "that man who's just standing there alone" may increase during use.

Both Trump and Barr have been longtime supporters of each other. In a response to a comment about Jarrett, Barr had said: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

She urged people not to defend her and said of her Jarrett tweet that she was "ambien tweeting" at 2 a.m.

On Comedy Central, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah joked, "If you listen to their ads, there is a subtle warning about just [racism]". "You throw me under the bus. nice!" the comedian tweeted.

What ABC may miss out on most in Roseanne'sabsence though, are advertising dollars.
