Ambien Maker: Racism Not A Side Effect, Despite What Roseanne Says

The hosts of ABC's The View trashed Roseanne Barr after their network cancelled her show following her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

Roseanne wrote, "It was 2 in the morning and i was ambien tweeting - it was memorial day".

Tweeters have also been chiming in about the side effects of Ambien, causing the drug's name to trend on the social media site.

Parsons shared the fan-made poster on Instagram to share his support for Metcalf, who also plays his own on-screen mother, Mary Cooper, on Big Bang.

Despite Barr's announcement that she was leaving Twitter after the incident, the sitcom star returned to retweet and respond to messages.

According to Deadline, ABC has additionally halted its campaign to promote Roseanne for the Emmys, and all promotional materials for the show have been yanked from websites belonging to it and Disney, one of Hulu's owners.

President Donald Trump weighed in on the Roseanne Barr controversy with a complaint Wednesday that he never got an apology from ABC with an apology for the 'for the disgusting statements made and said about me on ABC'.

But also today was a big target for me. "I was trying to hold on to my position, but I died in the final 10km". Tomorrow is the only day that I know the final climb but I expect a breakaway to finally succeed".

Not only did Reid make multiple hateful comments about gay people and Muslims over a sustained period, she then lied about it and said she was hacked - an excuse no-one believed and which technical experts ruled out as very unlikely. She was still replying to fans' tweets as of Wednesday morning. "I blame myself, not Ambien", she tweeted.

Despite walking back her racist tweet, Barr, 65, retweeted comments such as: "I look like a monkey. Why?"

"I want to mention Bob Iger, who is the CEO of Disney, called me before the announcement", Jarrett, 61, said.

In addition to the cancellation of her rebooted show, reruns of the original program, which ran for much of the 1990s, were pulled by Viacom.

"Wow! unreal", Barr wrote in response.

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

But cancelling "Roseanne" is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. Barr regularly attacks liberals on Twitter and peddles fringe conspiracy theories.
