Roseanne's tweet leaves lost jobs in its wake

Sanofi released a statement on Twitter expressly pointing out that racism is not a known side-effect of taking Ambien.

"Wow! unreal", Barr wrote in response.

In a since-deleted overnight tweet, Barr blamed a dose of Ambien for the incendiary tweet in which she likened Valerie Jarrett, an African American former White House aide, to an ape.

Roseanne has not yet responded to Trump's comment regarding her firing from ABC, although she did retweet his statement.

An old picture of Roseanne Barr dressed as Adolf Hitler, wearing a swastika and pulling burnt cookies from an oven, splashed on the front of the New York Daily News Wednesday like a neon sign asking ABC executives: What were you thinking?

"I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please".

Barr's racist joke was slammed by co-stars such as Michael Fishman and Gilbert.

Barr went on to suggest that Soros meant to "overthrow [the] us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore USA law & favor "feelings" instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that 'racist.'" When a correspondent made a reference to Valerie Jarrett helping to "hide a lot" during the Obama administration, Barr chimed in with her fateful comment, which she subsequently blamed on the sleeping drug Ambien.

ABC News and ESPN are owned by the same parent company, Disney.

The President himself made it all about his reputation, too, tweeting: 'Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the frightful statements" that have been said about him on ABC.

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said.

Both Trump and Barr have been longtime supporters of each other.

On his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan shared a similar sentiment on Wednesday, saying Barr had recently confided in him that the show was putting her under major stress, saying, "I need to adjust my meds, I'm not thinking straight".

Speaking on an MSNBC town hall program that aired late Tuesday, Jarrett said that she was "fine" and that she was more "worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

The comic was initially contrite after ABC dropped the show, saying: 'I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet'.

"I said look, someone has got to tell her that Donald Trump doesn't carry his own phone".

"I think reining Roseanne in could be a little hard".
