Cast of 'Roseanne' Might Star in a New Series Without Roseanne Barr

"I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please".

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

This last tweet she noticed seems to suggest that the Obama couple may have something to do with the cancelation of Roseanne because she mocked their Netflix deal before.

Barr has since stated that she would be addressing the entire controversy on Joe Rogan's podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience", this upcoming Friday. She reposted a tweet by Sara Gilbert, the actress who played her daughter, Darlene, on the show and served as executive producer. "If you suddenly wake up and you're at a Klan rally, contact your doctor immediately - unless he's black, because then you'll probably just call him a monkey".

Barr wrote back, "Wow! unreal".

The narrator says, "Until you know how Ambien will affect you, you shouldn't drive in urban areas, operate heavy machinery, or visit a Starbucks". "It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

A pharmaceutical company took aim at Roseanne Barr after the star of ABC's now-canceled television show "Roseanne" blamed a racist tweet on the sleep medication Ambien.

Of course, Golden State rediscovered its form, flying past the Rockets for a 115-86 blowout victory to even the series at 3-3. I also expect CP3 to play, as he's too much of a competitor to sit out a game seven with a finals berth on the line.

Fool me once, shame on you.

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand, '" Arnold told The Hollywood Reporter. She wrote of Sykes, "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show".

Arnold said that Barr's support for President Donald Trump and her belief in conspiracy theories ― such as "Pizzagate", a debunked theory about child sex rings associated with pizza parlors, and claims that Obama was not born in the United States ― were indications to him that something would go seriously wrong.

Barr first blamed the medication on the tweet that caused a firestorm in a few tweets on Tuesday: "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".

What ABC may miss out on most in Roseanne'sabsence though, are advertising dollars.

Barr had earlier apologized to members of the cast and crew, but the tweet was deleted.

"I have only taken Ambien once ... but I don't remember one of the side-effects being racism", CNN's John Berman tweeted.
