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.
People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.— Sanofi US (@SanofiUS) May 30, 2018

Because CLEARLY the impeccable Michelle Obama is wasting a second of her life on you. #ThankYouABC

lol wait wait wait... are y’all seriously trying to blame roseanne’s racism on Michelle Obama? let me be clearer: YOU’RE USING RACISM TO JUSTIFY YOUR RACISM.— Kelly Michael Gimm🎙 (@kellygimm) May 30, 2018
Michelle Obama must have stuffed that Ambien down her throat and handed her the phone too...— RuPaul Ryan (@itsrupaulryan) May 30, 2018
Sorry Don't Agree At All. U Don't Apologize Then Come Back Online 1 Hr Later And Start Justifying What You Said By Blaming Ambien, Michelle Obama, and The Big One, " it was ok for me to say that because I thought she was white.". This Is Not A Witch Hunt. Its About Human Decency.— Happy Walk Happy Dog (@HappyWalkHappyD) May 31, 2018
michelle obama roseanne BLAMING MICHELLE OBAMA ROSEANNE THATS TAKING YOUR HATRED TO ANOTHER LEVEL— MR. HERSHEY 2574 (@clay2574) May 30, 2018
But when you apologize, then blame it on Ambien, then get mad that others were offended by it, then blame Michelle Obama & then go back to retweeting the same crazy stuff that you blamed Ambien for then the 1st apology was probably not authentic. 🤷🏾♀️— Kbury (@nug1) May 30, 2018
