"You don't have to look in the faces of those you're attacking", she said. And she seemed to be blaming her behavior on Ambien.

She tweeted on Tuesday after she lost her show and talent agent, and earned widespread scorn, that she wasn't looking for sympathy. All told, she posted more than 100 times.

Jarrett, a former senior advisor to President Obama, called the insult a "teaching moment", telling MSNBC during its "Everyday Racism in America" town hall, "I'm fine".

ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr's sitcom, "Roseanne", on Tuesday after Barr tweeted a racist comment that compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least".

Ambien is a popular sleep aid that is used to treat people with sleep disorders.

"I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien", Barr said in a now deleted tweet that she sent about 2 a.m. on Wednesday.

Oddly, she later deleted all of her references to the medication.

Sanofi-Aventis tells people to stop taking Ambien if they find themselves performing complex behaviors - like making phone calls or driving a auto - without being fully awake. Barr's explanation was deemed laughable.

Other side effects include confusion, disorientation and aggression.

When the Twitter user pointed to her previous tweets-and the headlines they inspired-she wrote, "i blamed myself. stop lying". I will handle my sadness the way I want to. Several networks said it was removing reruns of her show.

Her Twitter account had a manic feel throughout the morning.

Others inevitably brought President Trump into the conversation.

But then she turned to a surprising target - her "Roseanne" team.

The host quipped that ABC needs "Roseanne" for its high ratings. She also pushed the debunked conspiracy theory that businessman and philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, conspired with the Nazis. Gilbert had called Barr's initial comments "abhorrent", saying they "do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".

Roseanne Barr participates in the "Roseanne" panel during a press tour in Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 8, 2018.

- Will President Trump comment at all?
