The jokes were flying Wednesday after Roseanne Barr tweeted that she was on Ambien when she tweeted a racist message about former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, which ultimately cost Barr a sitcom. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't".
They go on. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". She even revealed whether or not she would want another network to pick up the series.
"You throw me under the bus. nice!" she said in a tweet directed at Fishman.
Viacom-owned TV Land, where Roseanne marathons were a weekend staple, Paramount Television and CMT, were joined by Hulu and digital giant Laff in pulling the shows from their catalogs.
In a tweet that appears to have been since deleted, Barr wrote, "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". She also compared the response to President Donald Trump's experiences. I feel so empowered by @IAmWandaSykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. Roseanne later blamed her racist tweet about Valerie on taking the sedative Ambien.
In other tweets, Barr said that she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse", and asked for people not to boycott ABC, saying the network has the right to "do what they wish". Through her selection of retweets, Barr implied that she was sacked over her support for President Trump.
More than 18 million people on average have watched the reboot of "Roseanne" this season, according to Nielsen Co.
"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump wrote.
Oh yeah, now Barr says she is being bullied.
Actor Don Cheadle called out the apparent racism in Barr's tweets.
