Roseanne Barr writes 'I was Ambien tweeting,' fires back at castmates

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", Dungey said.

Valerie Jarrett, a onetime adviser to former President Barack Obama, wants to turn a racist tweet aimed at her by Roseanne Barr into "a teaching moment", she said. "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump tweeted.

"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", she wrote.

Jarrett, 61, said Bob Iger, chief executive of ABC's parent company, Disney, called her before the announcement was made to apologize.

Barr later said she was not putting blame on the sleep aid for her racist comment. Clinton responded to Barr, saying she is in no way related to the Soros family (she is married to Marc Mezvinsky), but when Barr apologized for the mistake she called Soros "a nazi".

A bigger cause for concern though for Disney is the growing sense of apathy and rejection of Star Wars properties in China . In the days ahead of release, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said a Lando movie is a possibility.

Barr, who last night retweeted people who were going after some of the View hosts, apologized but also said she was "Ambien tweeting" and continued to retweet people who were raising questions about Jarrett's background. In response to tweets calling out Gilbert and Emma Kenney, who plays Barrs granddaughter, Barr wrote, "i feel bad for POTUS-he goes thru this every single day".

Barr tweeted on Tuesday night that fans should not defend her remark that former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes".

After news of the cancellation spread, co stars like Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman took to Twitter to express their regret at what happened and to condemn their TV mom's statements to their followers. "She just crossed the line again".

She first targeted Fishman's lengthy statement that he shared hours after the show's cancellation. "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by those abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

"Her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show", she wrote.
