Roseanne Barr has blamed sleeping pills for a tweet that led to the cancellation of her hit show, but the drug company says "racism is not a known side effect".
Discussing Barr's recent remarks - and the media scrutiny surrounding them - he said, "I don't know anything about it".
On the end of the series: "It had to happen".
On feeling it wouldn't last long: "I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was canceled". A little controversy improves ratings, but supporting your star when she makes blatantly racist comments is just bad press. In any other industry, if you go to bat for your friend and join hands with them in a business deal only for them to screw you over that is your loss.
In the aftermath of the Valerie Jarretttweet, the backlash against Roseanne Barr has been swift. "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs", she said.
Barr has posted more than a hundred tweets since "Roseanne" was canceled, and many of them are defiant. She got bronchitis, she was overworked, I think she was stressing the f-k out.
Roseanne Barr hasn't finished pleading her case after a controversial week.

If you're hoping for a "Roseanne" spin-off following the show's cancellation, all bets are off for now. Some members of the cast may still receive compensation for the 2018-2019 primetime season, despite the fact that there's no script in the works and no episodes have been filmed. Fans of the original series may recall that young DJ struggled with kissing a black classmate on the original Roseanne series in the 1990s.
