Roseanne Barr might be down, but she's not going out without a fight. Hours after her Roseanne reboot was canceled by ABC, the disgraced comedian blamed her show's termination on none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Despite announcing her departure from Twitter, Barr returned denouncing claims that she was a racist and reposting tweets in support of her.

One of her tweets came in the form of a conspiracy theory that accused the former First Lady of contacting ABC President Channing Dungey and urging Roseanne be canceled because of her racially insensitive comments about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Barr came under fire saying Jarret was the product of "Muslim Brotherhood" and "Planet of the Apes."

Michelle Obama isn't Roseanne Barr's only scapegoat, though. She attempted to blame her racist Twitter rant on the sleeping drug Ambien. Sanofi US, creator of Ambien, quickly took to Twitter shutting down Barr's attempt to blame her tweets about Jarrett on the sleep aid.
