Ambien Fires Back at Roseanne Barr: Racism Is Not a Known Side Effect!

We think it's fair to say that Roseanne Barr's career is in tatters. And her latest tweet storm has only made things worse. The actress had already placed herself on an embargo from social media after the racist comments that got her ABC comedy canceled. But she returned to social media to open up about what happened before the tweet that got her show canceled. Her first tweet read: “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.” Instead of taking aim at a person, she went after Ambien, reiterating that “Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I’ve done weird stuff while on ambien — cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc.” Related: Roseanne Canceled at ABC! She subsequently retweeted a variety of different things, with some being for her show being canceled and others being against it. But Sanofi, the pharmaceutical company that produces the drug has hit up Twitter with a statement that certainly makes things worse for Roseanne. "People of all races, religions, and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world," the Tweet reads. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication." Related: Roseanne Showrunner Breaks Silence on Show's Cancellation Roseanne shocked the world early on Tuesday morning when she compared Barack Obama's former adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs," Barr said upon realizing the true extent of her comments when ABC canceled the show. "I also sincerely apologize to the audience that has embraced my work for decades. I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me." This latest outburst, and blaming Ambien is a bit bizarre when you consider the fact that she tried to backtrack on what she said earlier. What do you think about all of this? Hit the comments below.

13 TV Characters Who Would Help Bury a Body

Characters don't have to be on a crime show to prove their ability to take care of certain tasks. Burying a body isn't for the weak which is something that all these TV characters have in common. Although that doesn't mean these characters are bad, in fact, this means they are resourceful and intelligent. If you needed help in the middle of the night these are the people to call, just expect to form a real bond with them afterward. There is just something about committing a crime together that kickstarts a beautiful friendship. Below is a slideshow that explores some of the best characters for the body burying job. 1. John Murphy - The 100 Murphy may have changed during the six year time jump before the newest season of The 100, but something tells me that he still has muscle memory when it comes to certain skills. He could definitely help you out, in a non-criminal way of course. 2. Dory Sief - Search Party Burying a body isn't anything new for Dory, in fact she has experience with two people now. If you are looking for a partner in crime with a moral compass, Dory should be your top choice. 3. Xander McClure - Siren Xander ended up having to lie about his father's death during the first season of Siren, so you could say that he knows what he is like. Just make sure it is an accident and that it involves the supernatural, Xander is all about that. 4. Michael - The Good Place You could count on Michael to think of a good plan to get you out of this sticky situation, the only issue is how would you know that he wasn't the one to set this all up in the first place? That is the true bad place. 5. Blaine DeBeers - iZombie Blaine has the reputation to assist with burying a body, it is probably easier to let him do all the work. Make sure though that you don't end up owing him because he might collect it in the worst way possible. 6. Caroline Forbes - The Originals Caroline has had her far share of messy clean ups, and she will make sure there is no evidence left behind. The perfect part about asking her though is the conversation that you could have with her as she helps. If you need a sounding board Caroline is your best bet. View Slideshow

Roseanne: Canceled by ABC! Stars, Celebrities React!

ABC swung the ax on Roseanne Tuesday afternoon following series star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet which was aimed at Barack Obama's former adviser. The cast, crew, and celebrity world have shared their thoughts on the whole situation, and well, we'll let you be the judge of the reactions. Scroll down. 1. Emma Kenney Series star Emma Kenney said, "As I called my manager to quit working on Roseanne, I was told it was cancelled. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes , Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. Bullies will NEVER win." 2. Michael Fishman "Today is one of the hardest in my life," series star Michael Fishman wrote in a note posted to Twitter. "I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes." 3. Sara Gilbert "Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show," said series star Sara Gilbert. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least." 4. Bruce Helford “On behalf of all the writers and producers, we worked incredibly hard to create an amazing show,” Helford says in a statement released through his agent. “I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is.” 5. Shonda Rhimes "The terrible part is all of the talented innocent people who worked on that show now suffer because of this," Rhimes began in her Twitter statement." "#notjustice But honestly she got what she deserved. As I tell my 4 year old, one makes a choice with one’s actions. Roseanne made a choice. A racist one. ABC made a choice. A human one." 6. Misha Collins "Roseanne was making boatloads of $ for @DisneyABCTV," said the Supernatural star. "For them to cancel it because of Roseanne’s racist, xenophobic rants on twitter shows a great deal of corporate responsibility & just how powerful the public’s outrage can be! Keep raising your voices!" View Slideshow

Valerie Jarrett Reacts to Roseanne Barr’s Racist Tweet: What Did She Say?

Valerie Jarrett is the person at the center of Roseanne Barr's racist tweets which led to the show's cancellation, and despite the controversy, she is hopeful that people take it as a teaching moment. “I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment. I’m fine,” Jarrett said at the top of the clip from MSNBC’s Everyday Racism in America. “I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense," she continued. "The person who’s walking down a street, minding their own business, and they see somebody cling to their purse or want to cross the street." "Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, ‘the talk,’ as we call it.” Related: Roseanne Canceled at ABC! Barr took to Twitter early Tuesday morning with two tweets that took aim at the former adviser of Barack Obama. “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr shared with her shocked followers. “ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.” Realizing the joke had not gone down well, she attempted to apologize. "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans," she began in her apology. "I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste." But the damage was already done, and ABC canceled the series. Related: Roseanne Showrunner Breaks Silence on Show Cancellation “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said ABC President, Channing Dungey in a statement on Tuesday afternoon, officially pulling the plug on the most watched show on TV. The show was removed from ABC's website and press site in a flash, while Viacom networks pulled reruns and Hulu nixed old episodes from the streaming platform. Barr's agency even dropped her as a client. Somewhere, Roseanne is probably thinking about a tell-all book titled "How to Blow Up Your Career In One Tweet." For what it's worth, Roseanne attempted to apologize for getting the show canceled with a late-night tweet on Tuesday night. Related: Roseanne Barr Breaks Silence: Don't Feel Sorry for Me! “Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet," she said. Watch the full video of Jarrett's reaction below.

Roseanne Barr Opens Up About Show Cancellation: Don’t Feel Sorry for Me!

Roseanne will not be returning to ABC for Season 11 after all, and fans can thank series star Roseanne Barr for that. ABC swung the ax on the popular comedy series Tuesday afternoon in the aftermath of a scandal which found Barr tweeting racist comments about Barack Obama's former advisor, Valerie Jarrett. “Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet," she revealed on Twitter, before confirming the destination fans can hear more about the story. "I will be on Joe Rogan’s podcast friday.” But that was not the only statement Barr released. She released a lengthier one through Buzzfeed that certainly made it sound like she was remorseful for her deplorable actions. "I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter," this newer statement says. Related: Roseanne Canceled at ABC "Above all, I ant to apologize to the cast and crew of the Roseanne show," she continues. "I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values - I love all people and am very sorry." "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs," the actress revealed. "I also sincerely apologize to the audience that has embraced my work for decades. I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me." It's odd that Barr has released two statements, but maybe she felt like the first one did not reveal the true extent of how sorry she is for what is going to become one of the biggest twists on the small screen in recent memory. Related: Roseanne Star Emma Kenney Reacts to Show's Cancellation The bad thing about all of this is that Barr proceeded to retweet hateful messages about ABC president, Channing Dungey, and tweets that called Sara Gilbert a "backstabber." The whole thing started when Roseanne took aim at Jarrett with a comment that compared her to an ape, among other things. “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr said on Twitter early Tuesday morning. “ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.” But the joke went down a storm for all the wrong reasons, and Roseanne apologized just hours later.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 Episode 7 Review: After

Gilead will never cease to amaze me. At a time I thought the actions of one handmaid in such a public and revered setting would garner the wrath of the Republic as a whole, instead, we saw life anew for some at the colonies and other surprises on The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 7. Even the death of Commander Pryce didn't mean the end of life as June knew it at the Waterford's. This installment was full of surprising moments allowed the first glimmer of hope for the women of Gilead. It's not much, mind you, but Ofglen's bravery seems to have given the others who reside there at all levels a bit more of the same. With the arrival of someone like Commander Cushing who was willing to get answers without considering the ramifications of his actions, others had to think on his behalf. Related: The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 6 Review: First Blood Killing the family of a rebel handmaid and making an example out of them (and from the looks of those hanging in their yards, many, many others) was pushing the envelope a little too far for the comfort of other families who may not wish to imagine they, too, might have a rebel in their midst. Serena Joy knew she had one and still wasn't about to let a man like Cushing get his hands on her. Their circle of friends before Gilead was interconnected, and Serena Joy knew of the man and thought ill of him, to put it bluntly. Serena Joy: Praise be. You're alright. June: Yes, I'm fine. Serena Joy: Guardians shooting Marthas in the street, and it's supposed to make us feel safer. It's asinine. Permalink: Guardians shooting Marthas in the street, and it's supposed to make us feel safer. It's... Added: May 29, 2018 Fred's absence from the house was giving Serena Joy a sense of purpose again and a feeling of independence she hadn't had most likely since Gilead became a place, a place she unwittingly helped create. I've been trying to think it through, how Serena Joy got suckered into becoming a stand-by-your-man woman when she was once so competent and independent, and I don't think it was in the original charter of Gilead. It couldn't have been. Related: The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Seeds Living with my aunt (not an Aunt), a woman of the '60s and the original feminist movement, she's appalled that we are just now coming to terms with the #MeToo movement. She can't help but wonder what everyone thought they were doing years ago if not giving women voices to stop what we're only now beginning to say out loud. It's almost as if we live in an alternate universe. For years, we let fear keep us in harm's way being oppressed by men in myriad forms for fear we'd be oppressed or physically harmed. The women of Gilead are in the same boat but treading a lot more water. Serena Joy didn't realize just how much water she was treading u..

Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 1 Review: A Rock, A River, A Tree

"It'll be a slaughter they never come back from." That was the promise Charley Bordelon made on the Queen Sugar season 2 finale, and it appears she's keeping that promise on Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 1. Charley's playing a long game here. She's looking several steps ahead and honing her strategy, and best of all, keeping it quiet. The only other person that knows of her plans is Ralph Angel. Sam Landry, he opened the door to his house and let me come right in. So now, with my 1%, I'm going to make myself just as comfortable as can be. Open access to all of his corporate records, financials. I'm going to dig up every square inch of dirt and take down every shareholder on that board. I'll burn the entire Landry family to the god damned ground, and when I own Landry Enterprises, we'll finally bring power to the people, Ra, where it belongs. Charley Permalink: Sam Landry, he opened the door to his house and let me come right in. So now, with my 1%, I'm... Added: May 29, 2018 I know that this will probably take all season and that there will be obstacles along the way, but if Charley can really take down the entire Landry empire, it will be worth the wait. Sam Landry is such a blatantly racist, power hungry, crook, and Jacob is nothing more than a privileged sleaze. It's easy to root for Charley to take them down. RELATED: 17 TV Women Proving Motherhood is Sexy as Hell-o!! But Charley had other important things on her plate. It appears she's hired a private investigator to track down the police officer who stuck a gun in her son's mouth. I was so proud of Charley for keeping her cool as she noticed Officer Orson at the basketball game. I can only imagine how much self-control it took to smile and make small talk with a man I'm sure she'd like to eviscerate with her bare hands. The most powerful enemy is the one you never see coming. For Officer Orson, that's Charley Bordelon. Queen Sugar Season 3 Trailer: The Bordelons Are Back The saddest and most hopeful part of that short interaction was the meeting between Blue and Orson's grandson. Children aren't born to hate. That boy didn't see Blue's skin color, all he saw was a cool shirt. The world would be a much better place if that never changed. Nova had new challenges to handle as she was offered a six-figure book deal and a global tour. Most people would jump at such a chance, but not Nova. Her grassroots work means so much to her. It gives her the opportunity to look people in the eye and either listen to them or challenge their beliefs. I thought Charley's advice made a lot of sense in this Queen Sugar quote: Don't lead with the fear of what might be. Lead with the strength of who you are. Charley Permalink: Don't lead with the fear of what might be. Lead with the strength of who you are. Added: May 29, 2018 This deal might take Nova away from L..

Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 1 Review: The Killing

I can't say I'm surprised. Baz's fate was revealed on Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 1. Even without the events of last season, Scott Speedman's addition to Grey's Anatomy was a bit of a giveaway. Now the question of who was responsible for his death is up in the air. I was sure that Lucy was behind it considering how quick she was to remove all the cash hidden in the walls of Baz's house at the end of Animal Kingdom Season 2 Episode 13. But after watching Smurf's interaction with the gang leader, there is a strong possibility that Smurf was the one behind the dirty deed. If that's true, Smurf will have proven herself to be one of the best actresses on earth. She put on a good show after Pearce told her the news about Baz. The immediate look of shock, the tears, the shaking. I was convinced her reaction was genuine. Related: Animal Kingdom Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Betrayal And why wouldn't it be? Although she and Baz had a major conflict, Baz was still her son and losing any child is devastating. At least that's what she wanted everyone to believe. Pearce didn't seem too convinced, though, and he's going to keep pushing Smurf until he gets what he wants. It's hard to believe that Smurf could be that cold, but it's clear that she's only out for herself. All she cares about is her money. She didn't even ask anyone about Lena. How crazy is that? But if she were the one who ordered Baz killed, Lena wouldn't have even entered into her thoughts anyway. Smurf took Pearce's offer to heart, and the idea that she might actually turn against her boys is real. She's not going to be getting out of prison anytime soon, no matter what she does, so why not make everyone else suffer, too? Pope, Deran, and Craig were genuinely upset about Baz. They may have had their differences with him, but he was still their brother. Related: Get True Crime Files by ID via Prime Video Channels for Over 1,000 Real-life Mystery & Suspense Shows! I loved that none of them were afraid to show their emotions, and them coming together on the patio was quite touching. Even more touching was how Pope dealt with Lena. He could barely contain himself as he told her that her dad might never be coming back. It was too hard for him to tell his little niece the truth, but when she found out anyway when J couldn't stay in the truck like Pope asked, she handled the news like a trooper. Lena has been through so much; it's not surprising she's as indifferent as she is to all the havoc around her. That little girl is going to need some serious therapy when she grows up. Pope may think he's protecting her by keeping her with the family, but the best thing for her may be that she goes to foster care. He's going to be too involved in finding Baz's killer, and as much as I love Pope, he's not fully capable of taking c..
