Roseanne Barr: "I'm Not a Racist, Just an Idiot"

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

The Trump tweet continued, "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the disgusting statements made and said about me on ABC. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please. ty".

Roseanne Barr's racist tweet and the swift axing of her rebooted show put hundreds of people out of work, with some wondering whether they would be paid, most knowing they wouldn't be, and few with any legal recourse.

'The same ABC who hired her after years of her posting other tweets saying Hillary was running a child sex abuse ring out of a pizza restaurant in DC, that the Clintons had murdered people, and anyone who criticized Benjamin Netanyahu was a Nazi, ' Moore wrote. Sanofi, the company that makes Ambien, issued a statement that said: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". The comic actress later apologized, blaming the 2 a.m. tweet on the sleep aid Ambien. While asking not to be defended, she retweeted comments from supporters that attacked ABC and complained that conservatives are treated more harshly than liberals for their behavior.

When quizzed about the messages on Twitter, he said: "I don't know anything about it". Jarrett herself said she hoped it could become a "teaching moment" for America.

Despite the significant viewership ratings Barr was bringing in, ABC chose to terminate her show's revival in light of the ludicrous, racist statements she made yesterday on Twitter.

Trump targeted Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC's parent Walt Disney Co., on Twitter Thursday. John McCain (R-Ariz.), also took President Donald Trump and his administration to task.

Ironically, Barr and Trump are quite similar-except Barr has some talent and skill.

Netflix weighed in on the "Roseanne" racism scandal on Twitter, suggesting that viewers should ditch ABC and watch its shows instead.

In an interview with CNN, Arnold said: "I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor that, because it's risky when you have that much (advertising) money on a show", Arnold said.

"It has been 24 years, so I don't know that I know who Roseanne is", he says. The latter tweet is referring to the fact that the Obamas may have had something to do with the cancellation of the show because Roseanne once mocked their Netflix deal.

'Roseanne, the viscous slur at me you retweeted yesterday - if I had the time I'd sue you and drain you of every dime you have.
