Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for 'tasteless tweet'

20 ratings | 3105 views
Hours after her ABC sitcom was put on the chopping block, Roseanne Barr returned from her short-lived Twitter hiatus to issue a direct apology to Valerie Jarrett for a racist tweet the comedian claims was Ambien-induced. She also feigned ignorance about Jarrett’s ethnicity, blasted some of her co-stars, expressed remorse for President Trump, continue to spin debunked conspiracies and doled out insults during the screed, which lasted for about eight hours.

Not defending her... but I have Ambien moments. It is not a truth serum. But will make you say / email / tweet crazy stuff

Yeah right she's just rude

Guys chill. lol the tweet was bad but I've seen worse. An apology was enough but to cancel her show? That's overreacting. I bet many of you think controversial things but wouldn't say it. It's a common mistake. We all say dumb things.

I don't understand how comparing somebody to an ape is racist towards black people. Do black people really think that they look like apes?

It's a legitimate question.

In the America of Free Speach 1st Amendment, who really gives a hoot!!! She has the right to FREE SPEECH and WE have the right to hear it and evaluate it! Disney decided for Free Speech advocates that we should not hear or evaluate another person's opinion cuz they don't agree with it! This is just an excuse to silence the RInGHT point of view! OMG, wake up sheeple, stop following the legt rhetoric and thing for yourself! Go Roseanne! Go Kanye! Go Free Speech! Go FREE OPINION!

Free speech is great and so are results of that free speech, revealing yourself to be a complete piece of human garbage like Barr and getting your stupid racist ass fired.

It’s not racist. I cant really tell what race she is. She looks white to me but hey.. I’ve heard way worse in the past year from comedians that still have their jobs and somehow the view is still on air. They went after that show bc it was a right wing conservative family. Just like last man standing. This double standard crap is sick.

Ms Calling you stupid doesn't quite do you justice. If you were just stupid, you would be five times as smart as as you clearly are. You had better tell her and her parents that she' snot black, you stupid, lazy kunt.
Ms Flores (1 month ago)
Rod Nelson 1 use google, 2 I could care less if you think I’m racist. You sound like a 9yr old trying to cuss (you would say “neither is Trump” not either) and no genius she’s not black. Assuming her race and automatically correlating that term to blacks only makes you racist. Since I’ve hit a soft spot in your feelings, I’m going to let your smart self know I don’t engage in mindless banter on social media. So hopefully you can utilize your “intelligence” and find the answers your looking for. ✌️

Wrong side mom Sure, you're not a racist. And either is Trump. Bullshit. She IS black, you ignorant phucking bitch. So what liberal actor on a sitcom has said worse? Let's see a quote, you lying moron.

Boaz V (1 month ago)
Let me start by saying I am not a trump supporter, I think hes the worst. But when so many people, including me, refer to trump as an "orangutan" or an "orange buffon" how is that different from this? Is it me or is there a double standard here?
Rod Nelson (1 month ago)
Do you have a sitcom? Do you really think that saying a black person looks like an ape isn't a racist? Because if not, you're clearly a lying fucking moron who does like Trump.
L6rd 6f Cr6ws (1 month ago)
White supremacist garbage have traditionally thought themselves more evolved than blacks and therefore they have used the comparison. Comparing Trump to an orangutan is not racist because there is no historical context of white people being compared to apes.

Well Valerie Jarrett looks white, people just cry about everything and let's be honest here America, they have been looking for a reason to fire her since her pro Trump show started.. I don't think she is racist, I think the dumb liberals today think everything is racist..
Rod Nelson (1 month ago)
Mr Poop Right, saying a black person looks like an ape isn't racist. You phucking moron.
L6rd 6f Cr6ws (1 month ago)

Venomous Well, my pastor's youngest son doesn't qualify as average. You just can't walk up to Yale and try to get in because you like it's prestigious record turning out great educated enrollees. It's not that easy. So for a black person to graduate from Yale, that tells you that this black person is anything but average.

Mr Popeye freedom of speech means the government can't jail you for most but not all speech. It has never meant others are forced to give you a platform to speak from. Is rosanne is jail right now for her comments? If not then this has nothing to do with free speech. And you're calling me the dumbass? Take a civics class

Nope, no rehabilitation of this disgusting monster. Blaming Ambien for the last four years of racism is the kind of thing she's not rich and white enough to get away with
MrMJmusicLover (1 month ago)
Venomous Because it's not the meaning behind it, it's the word used to describe black people as low class and uneducated.
Venomous (1 month ago)
MrMJmusicLover Then why does she get fired for it? Should've been commended then.
MrMJmusicLover (1 month ago)
Venomous But an ape is extremely intelligent and has the strength of 10 men at once, so it's more of a compliment than an insult.

the Tweet was not nice obviously either she's impaired or it's her beliefs. the gal she tweeted about is in politics so I'm sure worse has probably been said about her. How about everybody get some thick skin and just keep moving forward. She's a trump supporter worse has been said about Trump even before with a pornstar came out. I like I like the show along with many millions of others perhaps it will come back on another Network.

cn 250 except potus.. drunky the clown.
rita pita (1 month ago)
cn 250 amen I'm shocked that her show was cancelled over it. Maybe another network will pick it up. After all freedom of speech but yes we do have consequences I just don't see that her views would impact the network. Especially since others on her show are staunch Democrats and don't share her views little bit.
