Here Are The Now-Deleted Tweets From Roseanne Barr Post-Cancellation: I Was ‘Ambien Tweeting’

It didn’t take long for actress Roseanne Barr to ignore her declaration made hours earlier that she was swearing off Twitter and return to the social media platform.

In numerous now-deleted tweets posted late into Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, the former ABC star told her supporters they should not defend her tweet about former Obama White House advisor Valarie Jarrett, which many perceived as racist. Barr explained that she posted the regretful tweet about Jarrett while she was on Ambien. She also retweeted numerous tweets blasting ABC for their hypocrisy over her cancellation while ignoring over-the-top antics from left-wing employees.

“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. I will be on Joe Rogan’s podcast friday,” she announced in a now-deleted tweet.

Earlier in the day, President of ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey announced the cancellation of the show in a statement condemning Barr’s tweet. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said Dungey. Barr, in a tweet she later deleted, said Jarrett is what happens when the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes” have a baby.

In another tweet, Barr personally apologized to Jarrett. “@ValerieJarrett I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!” she wrote.

Barr followed up by saying that while she regretted the tweet, she regrets being labeled a “racist” even more.

“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me,” she posted in another now-deleted tweet. “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.”

Barr also called off any boycott against ABC. This tweet has since been deleted, too.

The most bizarre posts came in the form of retweets, which included Barr posting two doctored images, one which included ABC’s “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg in a t-shirt depicting the assassination of President Donald Trump:

Other retweets suggesting Barr’s tweet about Jarrett was not racial, blasted political correctness, and slammed ABC for their hypocrisy in canceling her show while supporting leftist employees who have said outlandish things, such as “The View’s” Joy Behar bashing Christians as mentally ill:

Barr also bashed a costar for throwing her “under the bus.”

Something tells us Barr will continue to speak out on the matter.
