TV star, Rosanne Barr took to twitter Tuesday to compare former President Barack Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarret to an ape. This has resulted in her ABC show “Rosanne” being canceled.
Since yesterday’s incident Rosanne took to twitter to claim that her commentary was a result of her use of Ambien, a prescription sleeping medication. The series of tweets has since been deleted.
Representatives from Ambien have come forward to reject Rosanne’s claims, stating that “racism is not a known side effect of Ambien.”
Far right conservatives have taken to twitter to defend Rosanne. However the reality of the situation is there is no excuse for this behavior and it is completely socially unacceptable, hence her show being canceled.
