Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne: ‘Racism Is Not a Known Side Effect’

Roseanne‘ cast

Barr's tweet described Mrs Jarrett as the child of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes film.

In case you were living under a rock and paying no attention to media coverage yesterday (which would mean you weren't on LRM and that's just mean), the revival of Roseanne was canceled by ABC after strong outrage surmounted due to a racist tweet from the star and creator, Roseanne Barr.

On the other hand, this tweet came shortly after Barr retweeted a celebration of President Donald Trump's announcement he was pardoning Dinesh D'Souza because he was "treated very unfairly by our government!"

She claimed she was joking, but then she deleted the tweet and issued an apology to Jarrett and "all Americans". The 11-time Emmy nominee continued, "I've been up there 12 times already, and if I didn't get one by now, I'm not gonna get one". Trump said on Twitter.

"People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world", the drugmaker's social media account tweeted.

"Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me", she wrote in another post.

"The president pointed to the hypocrisy in the media saying the most awful things about this president and nobody addresses it", said Mrs Sanders.

Arnold also questioned whether Trump was really ever a fan of his former wife or just wanted to take credit for her ratings' success. "If only NBC had fired Trump when he started his racist birther movement in 2011, he wouldn't be in the White House today".

The president demanded penitence from Iger on Thursday, following through on an attack he lodged the previous day.




ABC and Disney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Barr has since blamed her behavior on the sleep aid Ambien. "I wish there was some creative way that she could have gone away - the character, to rehab - and they have such strong actors and they could have gone on and tell the important stories of middle America that need to be told, because nobody else is telling" them.

A spokeswoman for Sanofi, the pharmaceutical company that makes Ambien, said in response to Barr's tweets about taking the sedative: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

Jarrett was one of the targets of Barr's Twitter tirade early Tuesday morning.

On feeling it wouldn't last long: "I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was canceled".

In 1994, Barr said publicly that she had been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U".

On script paper, bringing back a sitcom about a struggling working-class family made sense in the Trump era.

I ask the same thing of the cast and production team behind the Roseanne reboot.
