Ambien Hits Back at Roseanne: "Racism Is Not a Known Side Effect"

Roseanne may have been canceled, but its fallen star doesn't plan on going anywhere.

Trump might have been referring to anti-Trump comments by Keith Olbermann, who recently returned to Disney-owned ESPN; late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmels mocking of Melania Trumps accent; or The Views Joy Behar calling Vice President Mike Pence mentally ill because of his faith.

"Wow! unreal", Barr tweeted back. Prior to its cancelation yesterday, Roseanne was ABC's best-performing series.

"So this is what I'm going to say, Roseanne - just because you were caught with your trousers down, don't try to drag other people down with you", Goldberg said on ABC's "The View", calling the doctored photo "horrific".

Barr also addressed Wanda Sykes - who was a consulting producer on the show - who tweeted that she was quitting Roseanne before ABC chose to cancel the series.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol and Virginia State Police will have more troopers on the roads for the holiday. Gas prices are rising, but not enough to keep New Mexicans from hitting the road this holiday weekend.

Unlike a few of their co-stars, Metcalf (Jackie Harris) and Goodman (Dan Conner) have remained silent on the show's cancellation following show creator and star Roseanne Barr's racially insensitive tweet comparing former Barack Obama advisor Natalie Jarrett to an ape. "I also want to say that I liked Roseanne's show and I thought that it reflected a lot of people in middle America and I don't want network television to stay away from reflecting blue collar people in the middle of the country", she added. Then she posted retweets from followers who blamed the liberal entertainment industry. She wrote of Sykes, "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show". For one thing, Barr's comment about Jarrett was part of a long history of publicly making racist and anti-Semitic comments and spreading conspiracy theories.

She also linked former first daughter Chelsea Clinton to billionaire George Soros, who she falsely claimed was a Nazi collaborator. "That tweet came from you", said Whoopi.

"Roseanne" earned an estimated $45 million in advertising revenue for ABC through its nine episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media.

But cancelling "Roseanne" is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. Sheen, for one, saw an opportunity in Tuesday's events.

Barr retweeted that, too.
