Roseanne Barr Apologizes To 'Roseanne' Cast And Crew, Blames Ambien

"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologise for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC".

"There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing".

Barr replied, saying, "Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me!" She has since blamed the racist tweet on the side effects of sleep aid Ambien, although she later deleted the tweets referencing the drug.

"The person who is walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse, or run across the street, or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk, as we call it", she continued. I BLAME MYSELF OK? it's just an explanation not an excuse, Ok, bully?

Barr took to Twitter overnight to apologize again and say that she sent out her racist tweet after taking a sedative.

Meanwhile, Barr insisted she is not racist.

The comedian on Wednesday retweeted a post from one of her supporters named Josh Cornett, who claimed former first lady Michelle Obama had a hand in pushing ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey to scrap "Roseanne".

Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment, said: 'Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values and we have made a decision to cancel her show'. She was still replying to fans' tweets as of Wednesday morning. "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the disgusting statements made and said about me on ABC".

"A lot of people there are just middle class Americans making a living and now they're out of work, especially at a time when we're ramping up into production for the fall season", Rebecca Sun of the industry trade publication The Hollywood Reporter said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Daily Wire contributor Michael Knowles said while Barr's tweet was in poor taste, "the popular furor to fire her is mostly performed and motivated by the Left's hysterical contempt for anyone even vaguely supportive of President Trump". She reposted a tweet by Sara Gilbert, the actress who played her daughter, Darlene, on the show and served as executive producer.

As for Barr's affinity for Donald Trump, Arnold admited he doesn't understand it.

Jarrett addressed the controversy during an MSNBC town hall on racism that had already been scheduled Tuesday night.

"Tone does start at the top, and we like to look up to our president and feel as though he reflects the values of our country", Jarrett said. "And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen, if you saw how her tweets escalated this weekend".
