The Controversial Roseanne Barr Tweet

In a recent step of controversy the Roseanne reboot was cancelled due to a racist tweet send by the actor Roseanne Barr on Twitter.

She responded to a comment about Valerie Jarrett saying this in one of her tweets, ” Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=CJ.” Now no matter what political subject it is, when you compare a African American to an “ape,” you are just plainly racist.

Now Roseanne, went on to issue this apology.

Here’s where things get a bit confusing. She went on to blame Ambien, a medication she was taking at the time for insomnia. My question is, if it was causing you to throw eggs at the wall? Why take it in the first place? Why would you risk your follower base, whether you are truly racist or not?

No medication, is known to make you say or do racist things. But medications have been known to let people’s tongue slip. Comment your opinion down below.
