ROSEANNE UNDER FIRE: Ambien representative responds to Barr’s claim that sleep drug contributed to ‘racist’ tweet

A representative for the drug Ambien issued a response on Wednesday to Roseanne Barr’s claim that she had taken the sleep medication prior to issuing an “offensive” tweet against former Obama administration insider Valerie Jarrett, which led to her show being canceled by the ABC network;

In a statement, a representative for the drug manufacturer said quote:

“People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi (the pharmaceutical company under which Ambien is sold) every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.”
