Sanofi responds to Roseanne Barr's alibi: Ambien doesn't make you racist

Roseanne Barr took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to suggest that the racist tweet she sent about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, which prompted ABC to cancel her sitcom, was the result of taking the prescription drug Ambien.

Both posts, which Barr later deleted, were part of her response to the backlash over her since-scrubbed tweet calling Valerie Jarrett, a top aide in the Obama administration, the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & 'Planet of the Apes'".

One person who claims he saw Roseanne Barr's Twitter scandal coming is her ex-husband, Tom Arnold.

In a flurry of tweets Barr variously said she had thought Jarrett was Saudi, Persian, or Jewish.

She continued: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?" But her show drew praise from President Donald Trump, who attributed its popularity in part to his supporters.

She explained: "hey guys, don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but. losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more".

JOHN Goodman isn't paying attention to the Roseanne Barr controversy - and he couldn't care less about ABC's decision to pull the plug on Roseanne and its Emmy campaign.

They say ABC's issue is that the characters in Roseanne were created by Barr and Matt Williams, and if the sitcom carried on without her she would still rake it in.

The tweets were branded "racist" and "abhorrent", with ABC Entertainment swiftly axing the reboot of Roseanne.

Barr sounds like she would support such a development.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on Twitter as well, urging users to show Barr compassion, adding that "attacking a woman who is obviously not well does no good for anyone".

The 59-year-old comedian also spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, and implied that Barr wanted her series to be cancelled. After Sara and Michael slammed her social media activity, she tweeted that they had thrown her "under the bus".
