The maker of Ambien defended the popular sleep drug in a tweet referencing Roseanne Barr's offensive tweets. The 65-year-old actress blamed Ambien for her bizarre tweet rant that prompted Disney to cancel her show on Tuesday.
"Guys I did something unforgiveable [sic] so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting - it was memorial day too - i went 2 far & do not want it defended," Roseanne tweeted on Wednesday.

Sanofi, the maker of Ambien, tweeted:
“People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi 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.”
In one of her tweets, Roseanne said Disney president Bob Iger called her to tell her she crossed the line before he announced the show's cancellation on Tuesday.
Roseanne previously admitted she suffered from mental disorders including multiple personalities.
