Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for tweet; drug maker replies

Roseanne Barr Says She Was ‘Ambien Tweeting’ About Valerie JarrettMore

The show, while celebrated by critics and fans alike, was also met with controversy - largely over Barr's personal politics, including past media gaffes and her support of President Donald Trump, as well as the some of the season's politically topical storylines.

Kelly Norman Ellis says she is teaching her students about the painful, historical context.

Barr's Ambien explanation was part of an hours-long tweetstorm reacting to ABC's cancellation of her hit show "Roseanne".

ABC may have canceled "Roseanne", but Roseanne Barr isn't going down without a fight.

She also furiously called out fellow co-star Sara Gilbert, who played another one of her children, for expressing her disappointment.

ABC's reboot of "Roseanne" garnered an average of 18.1 million viewers, according to The Hill.

Barr has been a vocal fan of the president and told Good Morning America: "I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years".

- What will ABC schedule Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall in place of "Roseanne?".

They've responded to adversity at every turn in this series, and there's no reason to think they can't do so again in Game 7 . The Warriors are in a do-or-die battle to become the Western Conference Champions as they take on the Rockets in Houston .

Roseanne Barr has always been a controversial figure, and certainly, in the years since her ABC sitcom initially went off the air, her views have become increasingly freakish and extreme.

"The show is a product, and the show is called "Roseanne.' A central person who works for the show called 'Roseanne" is a woman named Roseanne Barr", said Amanda Lotz, a media studies professor at the University of MI.

Earlier that day, she also targeted Chelsea Clinton, tweeting, "Chelsea Soros Clinton", suggesting in another tweet that the former first daughter is in cahoots with liberal businessman George Soros because she married his nephew.

"I think it was a reasonable bet to take, and it worked until it didn't", Ancier said.

Barr's initial tweet came in response to another Twitter user, who accused Mrs Jarrett of helping to hide purported spying during the Obama administration. Goodman said "you've heard more than I have" when he was asked about talk that he would get his own show.

"You throw me under the bus".

Roseanne didn't take too kindly to that as she replied: 'i created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it.ME. The actress wrote insensitive and offensive comments about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett via her social media page and paid the ultimate price for her words.

In a tweet posted just after midnight ET, which has since been deleted, Barr wrote, "guys I did something unforgivable [sic] so do not defend me".
