Roseanne Barr blames the sleeping pill Ambien for her racist tweet

When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over". In her apology, Barr admitted she "did something unforgivable" and "made a mistake". The maker of Ambien, Sanofi, issued a statement on Wednesday morning saying racism was not a side effect of the sleep aid. She had posted on Twitter that if the Islamist political movement "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj", referring to Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to onetime President Barack Obama.

Since the fallen sitcom star's rant, in which she also called investor George Soros a Nazi sympathizer and erroneously said Chelsea Clinton was married to his nephew, Barr has apologized several times.

"Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me", she wrote in another post.

In another seemingly deleted tweet, Barr asked her fans not to boycott ABC, writing, "I'm not a censor and they have the right to do what they wish". However, even if another network would be interested in picking up Roseanne, it doesn't seem likely that the entire cast would be on board to return. That's partly why Barr attacked her. Barr frequently uses her Twitter account to deride Democrats.

"It's a joke", she wrote in response to a CNN reporter.

But cancelling "Roseanne" is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said.

Oh honey. You can't blame years of insanity on one pill. "I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting".

Barr got what she deserved, said Shonda Rhimes, creator of hit ABC shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal".

"He wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", Jarrett said in an interview on MSNBC.

ICM dropped Barr within hours of the cancellation, saying in a statement that the agency was "greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable" tweet.

The executive producer of "Roseanne", which came back this spring after being gone for two decades and instantly became television's second most popular comedy, said he supported ABC's decision. Hulu said episodes of the new show would no longer be available on its streaming service.
