Roseanne Barr says she's an idiot not a racist, and blames Ambien for her racist tweets. Ambien manufacturer responds to the claim.
I have to say, I'm beyond disappointed. I've spent decades watching Roseanne, and was excited about the reboot. What's better, I thought they did a tremendous job on the first season of the reboot. But c'mon, Roseanne Barr!!! The tweet and the sentiment are not acceptable. She's blames being an idiot & the sleep aide, Ambien, to which they have responded.

It’s lunchtime. Time to pop three Ambien and hurl racial slurs at my salad.— Kashana (@kashanacauley) May 30, 2018
