Ambien Drug Maker to Roseanne: 'Racism Not a Known Side Effect'

Posted June 07, 2018

Tom Arnold, actor and ex-husband of Roseanne Barr, speaks to CNN's Anderson Cooper about her racist tweet that led to her sitcom's cancellation on ABC.

Actor Josh Gad made a reference to Barr's later tweet, in which she said that Ambien sleeping pills had been to blame for her initial tweet about Ms Jarrett. They do it because we have a white trash racist president.

"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the frightful statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump wrote. ABC said, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values and we have made a decision to cancel her show".

The tweet in question referred to Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".

Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation.

Barr also tweeted at former fellow cast member Michael Fishman, who played her son on the show: "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

"I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was cancelled", he said on Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360.

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama.

In addition to the Gold Star families event, the White House is set to hold a Ramadan dinner this week. Reporters turned to look at the spot he indicated, but there was no sign of the first lady .

McCain also strongly criticized Barr for "dragging" Goldberg into her defense of her racist tweet. "I begged 4 ppls jobs", she wrote.

Barr's Twitter hiatus was short-lived, however, as the star has once-again taken to the social media site to fire off a flurry of tweets.

As for how he's doing, Goodman said: "Everything's fine". ABC canceled the show hours later on Tuesday.

- Will President Trump comment at all?

In a statement, Werner said: "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by these abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

The actress was able to find plenty of sympathizers though because she noted multiple retweets of people supporting her through this PR crisis.

However, as Barr's Right-wing supporters began complaining about "the liberal media" taking her down for being an ardent Donald Trump supporter, the comedian ditched her promise to leave Twitter and instead began re-sharing conspiracy theories about her ouster.
