Drugmaker to Roseanne Barr: Racism Not Among Ambien’s Side Effects

GettyImages-57542990

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

Comedian Rosanne Barr doesn't have much to laugh about right now, especially considering ABC Network has just canceled the recent revival of her popular '90s sitcom.

According to a May 30 report by Pop Culture, Roseanne returned to social media to share some thoughts and opinions she had about her show being canceled by the network in the wake of her Twitter scandal. In one tweet, she admitted that her assumption was "ignorant of me for sure".

When one fan tweeted that Fox should pick up Roseanne, Barr spoke out.

Barr, 65, also issued a formal apology statement in which she expressed deep regret and apologized to Jarrett, ABC, and the cast and crew of her show.

She also followed up with a tweet on Wednesday morning saying that she didn't blame Ambien for the tweet but "blamed myself", in response to a Twitter user suggesting she had blamed the drug.

"I would hope that she has the character to feel bad for her colleagues... It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

PUBG Corp is suing Fortnite creator Epic Games over alleged copyright infringement
However, analysts suggest the popularity of PUBG has waned since January, while Fortnite continues to attract more players. A spokesperson for PUBG Corp said the company filed the suit in order to "protect its copyright".


Sara Gilbert, who played the role of Darlene on Roseanne, said that Barr's comments were "abhorrent" and that she was "disappointed" with Barr.

"I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me", Barr wrote.

The racist comment led to an immediate backlash Tuesday with Wanda Sykes, a producer on the recently revived "Roseanne" sitcom quitting.

On the Tuesday Fox News' segment, commentator Jessica Tarlov blasted Barr's derogatory tweets and said they're clearly "racist".

Barr seemed to liken the reaction from her co-stars and those a supporter called "her underlings" to the way President Donald Trump complains about members of his administration being "disloyal".

She reiterated this soon after when a follower criticized Gilbert, saying: 'She's distancing herself from me and my tweet-she has to'. "He said he had zero tolerance. and I appreciate that", she said.

"Wow! unreal", Barr tweeted back. She also apologized to everyone who had lost their jobs on the show due to her "stupid tweet".
