Roseanne Barr Blames Michelle Obama For The Cancellation Of Her ABC Show!

Roseanne Barr Blames Michelle Obama For The Cancellation Of Her ABC Show!

"While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication", the company tweeted, echoing a sentiment that many on social media had shared after Barr claimed the sleep aid was behind her offensive words.

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand, '" Arnold told The Hollywood Reporter. Jarrett, who is African-American and was born in Shiraz, Iran, is neither Muslim nor a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump's tweet Wednesday was meant to point out media bias against him. But on Wednesday Barr made the mistake of taking to Twitter again to lash out at ABC and her co-stars.

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", Barr tweeted Wednesday, attempting to defend herself against an onslaught of criticism. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. Barr was his headache then; he recalled having to go to her home where she was holed up with Tom Arnold for a few weeks and refusing to work in 1994, and coax her out.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday made the Roseanne Barr controversy about himself when he criticized Disney CEO Bob Iger for apologizing to Valerie Jarrett for the comedian's racist tweets that led to the cancellation of the hit ABC sitcom "Roseanne".

Barr, 65, later apologised and deleted the tweet but ABC said that her comment about President Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, who is black, was "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

Trump and Barr have been supporters of each other for years.

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".

So, you know, she just had a racist moment. "I think that is why I am so glad to be here this evening talking with all of you".

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

The show scored huge ratings and had been renewed for an 11th season following largely positive reviews - including from the president.
