Roseanne Apologizes and Blames Ambien for Actions

Roseanne apologizes to Valerie Jarrett, while blaming Ambien for causing her to call her an "ape."

Comedian Roseanne Barr recently tweeted that Obama advisor Valerie Jarret, who is black, resembles the offspring of “muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes,” Slate reports. Roseanne Barr then announced she was leaving Twitter, but she was back on it less than 12 hours later.

Roseanne tweeted again, “ABC has canceled my sitcom and I have nothing to lose.” That, however, was only the beginning of the tweet storm, when she began retweeting her supporters’ posts, then critics’ commentary, then fans’ tweets again.

In her maniac Twitter relaunch, Barr finally apologized to Valerie Jarrett:

As reported by Slate, “after having spent a few hours retweeting people who defended her, Barr repeatedly asked her fans not to defend her, while suggesting her racist tweet was caused by Ambien.

hey guys, don’t defend me, it’s sweet of you 2 try, but…losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more.”

“guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. 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. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.ty”

Ambien has since responded brilliantly with this tweet:
