Roseanne Barr 'Sick' Over Throwing out 'Greatest Actors in the World'

Barr blames sleep aid Ambien for racist tweet

The comment was later deleted and Barr released an apology on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to prevent ABC from cancelling the "Roseanne" show and prompting Barr's talent agency, ICM Partners, from dropping her as well.

ABC canceled the hit sitcom on Tuesday after the show's biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant.

The French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi was quick to push back - trolling Barr in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

Barr tried to do damage control by tweeting an apology where she admitted that the joke was in poor taste and possibly a side effect of sleeping pills. That led the drug maker Sanofi to say on social media that "racism is not a known side effect" of their product.

Barr, who had apologised for her comments, tried to further fix the damage on Wednesday, tweeting: "I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be".

Michael Rotondo, 30-Year-Old Evicted From Parents' Home, Finally Moves Out
Earlier this week, Rotondo called 911 after an unknown person reached him on his cellphone and called him a "loser". Rotondo argued that he had the right to stick around a while longer. "I love my parents immensely", he said.

President Trump again called on Bob Iger to apologize for its coverage of him, saying that he and ABC had "offended millions of people".

But after Barr's tweet that likened Jarrett, who is black, to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes", ABC canceled the show in a one-sentence statement from network entertainment president Channing Dungey.

Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation. "I begged 4 ppls jobs". "I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast Friday (sic)", Roseanne tweeted.

JOHN Goodman isn't paying attention to the Roseanne Barr controversy - and he couldn't care less about ABC's decision to pull the plug on Roseanne and its Emmy campaign.

Barr deleted her Twitter account soon after. When Sara Gilbert began rounding up the old "Roseanne" cast for a reunion in early 2017, ABC fought Netflix for the rights to show it.

Diplomacy heats up before Trump-Kim summit
The North Korean side is led by Kim Chang Son, who effectively serves as chief of staff to Kim Jong Un. A top North Korean official boarded a flight in Beijing on Wednesday bound for NY and talks with U.S.

"This is a person who, left to her own devices, is not totally in control", Harbert said.

Now, US president Donald Trump has weighed in on the matter and, well, it's possibly the most self-indulgent thing we have read in a long time.

As for whether Ambien could be to blame for Barr's actions, Dr. Nancy Collop, medical director of the Emory Sleep Center, wrote in an email, "I really don't think so".

The original Roseanne ran from 1988 to 1997, featuring a blue-collar family, the Conners, with overweight parents struggling to get by.

Barr detailed their conversation, claiming she thought Jarrett was white when she posted the remark.

AG Jeff Sessions 'worthless,' former Congressman Jason Chaffetz says
The president has told confidants he thought Holder always backed Obama and fought aggressively against congressional inquiries. Sessions reportedly offered to resign past year after a browbeating by the president, but that offer was refused .

However, he did reveal he's doing fine after the news of the cancellation.
