Trump to Disney CEO after 'Roseanne' scrapped: Where is my apology?

  • Barr blames sleep aid Ambien for racist tweet

"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.

"I don't know anything about it. I am now leaving Twitter". "No one is defending her comments - they're inappropriate - but that's the point he was making". "I'm so sick over this - they will never have better character actors on their network", Barr wrote.

"In fact, I tweeted a lot because I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor that, because it's risky when you have that much money on a show", Tom said. But when she invoked the sleep aid, her critics pounced. If Ambien is taken on Memorial Day, racist side effects are amplified, for some reason. "If your racism lasts longer than four hours, please see a doctor".

That prompted a swift retort from drugmaker Sanofi, which said: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". "I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is".

"It can rarely be determined with certainty whether a particular instance of the abnormal behaviors listed above is drug induced, spontaneous in origin, or a result of an underlying psychiatric or physical disorder", the company says.

Barr detailed their conversation, claiming she thought Jarrett was white when she posted the remark.

The tweet was widely considered racist, since Jarrett is an African-American woman and Barr made a comparison to an ape.

Ambien maker: Racism not a known side effect of our drugs
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr . Please don't start all of that boycott abc stuff-I'm not a censor and they have the right to do what they wish.

Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation.

It's not immediately clear what statements Trump was referring to. Judging from the comments of voters, though, the show wasn't likely to win anyway.

She wrote: "I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be". What she did and what she said is totally wrong.

On Wednesday, she attributed her lack of judgment in the incident to her taking of sleeping pill Ambien.

The disgraced comedian took to Twitter once again Wednesday night, this time to put ABC on blast for canceling the series, therefore letting go of talented actors Metcalf and Goodman.

Late Tuesday and into Wednesday morning Barr called that message "unforgiveable". "I begged for people's jobs". "I'm just not married to one". Discredited conspiracy theories portraying Soros - who is Jewish and was 9 years old when World War II began - as a Nazi collaborator have become right-wing internet staples. And where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the president as a Nazi and even expanding Olbermann's role after that attack against the president's family?
