Roseanne Barr Blames Ambien and Memorial Day for Racist Tweet

Oh boy, here come the excuses. By now, you’ve heard ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr’s show, Roseanne, after Barr tweeted out pretty racist remarks about ex-Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett:

muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj


Supposedly, this was a joke, but it was only funny in Roseanne’s mind. That’s when everything hit the fan. Her show got canceled, her reruns were removed and her talent agency dropped her. And those were only the big repercussions.

What made Barr get so racist? Ambien.

She tweeted out:

guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. 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. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please. ty

The twittersphere jumped on her statement with variations of “Ambien doesn’t make you racist.”

Also, pretty sure Memorial Day doesn’t make you racist either. So, not sure what that has to do with anything.

She also tried to play it both ways, saying she wasn’t making excuses, but you know, Ambien dooooes make you do strange things.

I’ll save you some time on Google. Here’s Joe Rogan’s Ambien bit.

He says a friend woke up in the middle of the night to make turkey while on Ambien, then came to and thought someone had broke into his house to cook it.

He was making a turkey, went downstairs, preheated the oven, drove to the supermarket, bought a turkey, came home, stuffed it, made mashed potatoes and gravy, cooked it, ate it, went to sleep, got up and called the police. He goes someone broke into my house and made a turkey.

Stay tuned for more Roseanne Barr racist excuses when she hits up Rogan’s podcast on Friday.

An easy prediction: she’ll be unable to control herself and will barf up more racist s**t.
