Roseanne Barr may have apologized for her disgusting tweet about Valerie Jarrett but it wasn’t enough to save her show. It was cancelled by ABC, Viacom has pulled Roseanne reruns, and Hulu and other networks joined the party. Throw in Roseanne’s talent agency, ICM Partners, which dropped her as a client and you’d assume that maybe, just maybe, she would step back from the public eye or, at the very least, Twitter. But no. Like President Donald Trump, she’s a glutton for punishment — and punishing — and continued to maintain a strong Twitter presence. Because what could go wrong?

Barr complained that she was tired of “being attacked and belittled” and blamed the sleep aid Ambien for her tweet that compared African-American and former Obama administration official Jarrett to an ape.

“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,” she wrote. “I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”


The makers of Ambien did, in fact, clap back with some fine shade:

Since Roseanne didn’t want to encounter any legal ramifications from her Ambien mention, she deleted the tweet, shocker, and replaced it with another.

She also said she was done with Twitter but then proceeded to retweet anyone and everyone who mentioned her name and what went down over the last couple of days.

Here’s the thing, though. It wasn’t just that one tweet that got her into trouble. Roseanne has been hate-tweeting for years and while she’s so hurt that she’s being labelled a racist, why would anyone think otherwise? Remember this gem, from 2013?

That tweet was no less abhorrent but, thankfully, it’s a different time. Gone are the days when talk like that would get swept under the rug. The swift and immediate action as a result of Roseanne’s tweet-happiness is proof of that.
