Unbelievable: Roseanne Barr Went On Another Tweet Storm Blaming Her Racism On Drugs And Lashing Out At Her Co-Stars

Her offensive tweet about Valerie Jarrett ended her career yesterday.

Published May 30, 2018

The arguably long overdue cancellation of Roseanne Barr's rebooted ABC sitcom has not deterred the actress from returning to the very means where her career took a tragic turn: Twitter.

In fact, she returned shortly after the announcement was made to apologize for her disgusting words in regards to Valerie Jarrett's appearance all while blaming them not on herself, but, rather, a drug.

According to Deadline, just prior to the announcement that her show was canceled and that she was dropped by her talent agency, Barr apologized to Jarrett for her despicable commentary in a now-deleted tweet.

  1. After going on a retweeting spree of what has now been confirmed to be incorrect information linked to a few public figures who have commented on her actions, Barr again tweeted another apology that has since been removed from her account.

    "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!!" she wrote, according to Deadline. "I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors wih lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet."

    It wasn't all apologies to go around for the star, however. CNN also reported that she lashed out at her co-stars Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert.

    In a tweet directed at Fishman that has since been deleted, she wrote, "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

    She then, however, went on to admit, once again, to her followers that while what she did was "unforgivable," she was actually under the influence of the sleeping pill Ambien when she posted the tweets that set the internet on fire.

    "I did something unforgivable so do not defend me," she wrote. "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."

    Needless to say, the majority of Twitter users — even Roseanne's Hollywood peers — seem to share the same sentiment regarding the notoriously problematic actress: good riddance. See how they reacted to the situation, especially her ridiculous excuse, below:
