Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne: ‘Racism Is Not a Known Side Effect’

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne: ‘Racism Is Not a Known Side Effect’

Tom Arnold has mixed emotions about his ex-wife, Roseanne Barr, and the revival of her hit ABC sitcom, Roseanne, being canceled - but he says he knew the implosion was inevitable.

ABC cancelled Roseanne despite its sky-high ratings after its star launched a racist attack on a former government official.

In one tweet she calls her own words indefensible and blames Ambien for the initial tweet. One is the standards people have for today's celebrities: "A celebrity like Roseanne, you might think her career's over - but look at the time we live in", Smith said, pointing to Mel Gibson's successful showbiz rehabilitation years after his anti-Semitic rant.

Sanofi, the company which makes the hypnotic sleep aid, wasn't impressed.

Working-level parties from both North Korea and the United States are in the island state, looking into venues and logistics. President Donald Trump will not be calling all the shots when he and Kim hold their on-again , off-again summit in June.

Sanofi, the maker of Ambien, responded with a statement full of shade: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

"It's a joke", she wrote in response to a CNN reporter. Jarrett, who is black, was born in Iran to American parents. She revealed that, after seeing Barr's tweets, she'd called her manager to quit Roseanne, which was exactly when she discovered that the series had already been canceled by the network. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, Barr revealed that the positive feedback she was getting from people who still support her was making her feel emboldened to combat ABC in some way.

The tweet came after a profuse series of apologies from Barr for the tweet early Monday which referred to the former adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett as a "child" of the "Muslim Brotherhood" and "Planet of the Apes".

Babchenko told the news conference he had previously fled Russian Federation after receiving death threats. The SBU said it had received information about the plot and had managed to prevent it.

"As you know, [he] has been extremely focused... on with the upcoming summit", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters "And the President is focused on North Korea... trade deals... rebuilding our military, the economy". "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". One executive producer on the show said they felt "gut-punched" when they learned the news.

John Goodman isn't paying attention to the Roseanne Barr controversy - and he couldn't care less about ABC's decision to pull the plug on "Roseanne" and its Emmy campaign.

"It's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do", Arnold said. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please". While they will all be paid for another season either way, there are reports that ABC may create a show around the cast members that are left.
