Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for tweet; drug maker replies

Barr also seemed stunned by Gilbert's admonition, writing, "Wow! unreal." in response to Gilbert.

"While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication", tweeted the French pharmaceutical giant in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", Trump tweeted Wednesday.

"Her tweets kept coming Wednesday morning, touching on everything from religion ("I'm a Jew making fun of Hitler, bigot", she defensively responded to a user who shared a photo of her from 2009, when she was slammed for posing as Adolf Hitler for a satirical magazine) to backing off on fully blaming the Ambien that she said she had taken".

In one of her other deleted tweets, Barr said "I'm sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers.so, go away if u don't like it".

"One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me". Questionable actions date back to a cringe-worthy, crotch-grabbing rendition of the national anthem in 1990; a claim, later recanted, that she was an incest survivor; and the 2009 picture reprinted on the Daily News. All told, she posted more than 100 times. "It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

Was ABC's gamble worth the risk to its reputation?

It is true that Iger called Jarrett and told her about the decision to cancel "Roseanne" shortly before it was announced on Tuesday. "She's not going to go on TV and say these things".

And she said she thinks the reason ABC pulled the plug was a threatened boycott by advertisers. "They decided that their career ambitions, or desire to return to network television, or financial interests would best be served by looking the other way. It was only when Ms. Barr became an immediate liability that everyone involved finally looked at her racism and dealt with it directly". "Maybe I just didn't get the call?" Plus, what will fill the ABC show's slot this fall? "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME".

She later apologized for what she called a "joke". He was ABC's top programming executive during the first run of "Roseanne" in the 1990s.

Barr has since blamed her behavior on the sleep aid Ambien.

Barr's former co-star Michael Fishman, who played her son D.J. Conner, said he "condemned" Barr's tweet about Jarrett and said he was "devastated" by the show's cancellation. She has the temperament, and the tendency to go to dark places, that fuels many artists, he said.

The show then aired a fake trailer for a Roseanne spinoff centered on Dan (John Goodman). "She blows up her own life and that of all those around her". The latter statement was accompanied by an old tweet by Barr.
