Roseanne Barr Controversy: Ambien Responds to Excuse for Racist Tweet

Adjust Comment Print

Sanofi, the company that manufactures Ambien, responded on Twitter Wednesday that "racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

Dictionary.com's Twitter account, an account that has always been known for their sly comebacks in the form of literal dictionary definitions, has contradicted Roseanne Barr's claims that "Ambien tweeting" led to her comparison of former Obama aide Valerie Jarrette to a Planet of the Apes character.

CNN's Brian Stelter reviewed how Barr has been "posting in a manic way" and noted her now-deleted tweet talking about how "unforgivable" her tweet was and how she "was ambien tweeting". She said of the Jarrett tweet, "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting". In a separate post she tweeted that "Joe Rogan is right about ambien" and says that in the past she's cracked eggs at the wall at 2am on ambien.

"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. Nice!" Sara tweeted that she was "disappointed" in her onscreen mom and blasted Roseanne's comments as "abhorrent". But he praised the swift move to cancel Barr's show: "They got the memo today - you're not empowered".

Oh honey. You can't blame years of insanity on one pill. "I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes".

Significant differences, however, remain - especially over the USA and North Korean definition of "complete denuclearization". The US and North Korea are seeking common ground on the steps it would take for Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear weapons.

He added that the Golden Knights have the "best fans and best arena in hockey, hands down-it's always insane here". Red Capitals sweaters speckled the steel gray crowd at T-Mobile Arena, but the night ultimately belonged to Vegas.

Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter on Tuesday just a few hours after announcing she was quitting the social media platform, and quickly took aim at two of her costars.

"I want to mention Bob Iger, who is the CEO of Disney, called me before the announcement", Jarrett, 61, said. Barr regularly attacks liberals on Twitter and peddles fringe conspiracy theories.

Jarrett, who was born in Iran to American parents and raised in the United States, had been the target of false allegations that she practiced Islam during her tenure in the Obama administration.

Trump reveled in the success of "Roseanne" after Barr's character in the show came out as a supporter of his presidency.

- Will President Trump comment at all?
