Barr herself helped kickstart this, suggesting that the only reason ABC canned Roseanne was due to an Ambien-aided slip-up when she made a racist comment about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Trump, playing the victim, had expressed anger Wednesday, saying he deserved an apology like Valerie Jarrett got from Iger after Roseanne Brr's racist tweet. While everyone from Tom Arnold to President Trump has sounded off with their opinion on the cancellation and Barr's comment, some of the people involved with the show are choosing to stay quiet.
"People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world", the drugmaker's social media account tweeted.
Jarrett spoke about the tweets directed at her by Roseanne Barr during an appearance on an MSNBC town hall on Tuesday.
"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said.
Abandoning her contrite apologetic position from Tuesday, Barr sensationally revealed the positive feedback she's getting from some users makes her feel bold enough to challenge the ABC.

Drug company says Ambien 'does not cause racism' after Roseanne Barr tweet
Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC. O'Donnell did, writing, "her racist comment was childish and beneath her best self", on Twitter on Tuesday.
That led to the response on Twitter by the drug maker Sanofi. He scoffed & said: "what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.' I begged 4 my crews jobs". The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of ABC and this station.
The ABC network pulled the plug on the revived show yesterday, just hours after Barr's tweet.
Barr, who has apologized several times, has insisted that she didn't know Jarrett was black when she fired off a tweet with a "Planet of the Apes" insult.
Not one to shy away from the Twitterverse, US President Donald Trump even jumped in on the conversation by criticizing Disney CEO Bob Iger, who supported ABC's decision to cut ties with the 2018 revival of the late 1980s-90s sitcom, "Roseanne". You throw me under the bus.
"It's not that I disrespect you guys, I just - I would rather say nothing than to cause more trouble", Goodman said in a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight via paparazzi firm The Mega Agency.
Following the initial fallout of her racist tweet, Roseanne co-stars Sara Gilbert, who played Darlene and heralded the new iteration of the show to the air, and Michael Fishman, who played DJ, denounced Barr's actions.
