In a preview from Roseanne Barr's upcoming appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, the embattled actress spoke extensively about her use of the drug Ambien, which she claimed she had taken before writing a racist tweet about Barack Obama adviser, Valerie Jarrett.
"It is a weird drug," she said in People's Magazine.
In a since-deleted post this May, Barr wrote of Jarrett, who is black, "Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby = vj." She also retweeted a number of conspiracy theories.
After ABC dropped her revival of Roseanne, Bar chalked up her posts to Ambien. "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me," she said. "It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-I went 2 far and do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please."
