Barr blames Ambien for tweet; drug maker replies

Ted Nugent Joins Roseanne Flap: 'Lying Dishonest Soulless Freaks'

Ted Nugent Joins Roseanne Flap: 'Lying Dishonest Soulless Freaks'

The comic, who on Tuesday had vowed to leave Twitter following the backlash - only to return to the social media platform later that evening to blame her tweets on Ambien - also apologized Thursday to her young Roseanne co-star Jayden Rey.

In another tweet, Barr said she had previously had "odd ambien experiences on tweeting late at night like many other ppl do", including one instance where she had "cracked eggs on the wall at 2am" after taking the drug. Roneanne said a racist thing, the show is over, and it now feels like a better move for everyone to move on.

Roseanne Barr begged ABC to save her show from being canceled earlier this week after she posted racist remarks on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, and said she thought the former senior adviser in the Obama White House was white. However, she later fired back at Fishman and Gilbert, implying that they were ungrateful and said that they "threw her under the bus".

"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC to let me apologize and make amends", Barr wrote in the since-deleted post.

ABC Entertainment's president announced the network was pulling the plug after Barr tweeted that Jarrett, who now serves on several corporate boards and is a senior fellow at the University of Chicago Law School, is the product of the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes".

ABC and Disney had taken notable steps to be more inclusive in its entertainment, and Dungey is the first black to be entertainment president of a major broadcast network.

Barr sounds like she would support such a development.
