Roseanne Barr has moved from Ambien to her costars in targeted Tweets after show cancellation
Roseanne Barr is now targeting her costars.
It’s admittedly hard to keep up with Barr’s dizzying response to her self-made catastrophe Tuesday, when she fired off a racist tweet aimed at Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett and subsequently saw ABC cancel her top-rated reboot.
After her tweet, Barr swore off Twitter (again), then returned with a series of apologies: to Jarrett, her fans and the people who work for her. She said she does “not want” her tweet “defended-it was egregious Indefensible.” At one point, the comedian blamed “Ambien tweeting.”
“It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too,” she said.
Yet in the middle of the night on Wednesday she began lashing out at her costars who publicly spoke out against the tweet that ultimately cost them all their jobs.

Take Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Conner on the show. Fishman released a lengthy statement Tuesday saying Roseanne’s “cast, crew, writers and production staff strived for inclusiveness.” He added: “The words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved.”
Barr hit back: “i created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME. You throw me under the bus. nice!”
