The much-hyped Roseanne sitcom reboot came crashing down earlier this week. All it took was one racist tweet from the official Roseanne Barr Twitter account to convince the executives at ABC-TV to cancel the high-rated show. Roseanne was quick to blame the sleep drug Ambien for her tweet. The Internet is having fun and joking about the whole situation. But one of the best bits we’ve seen is about a new sleep aid for racists called Roseambian. Enjoy!
Roseambian: The New Sleep Aid For Racists
Inspired by the Roseanne Barr Twitter debacle, Alex Kirry from KSL NewsRadio’s Nightside Project and The Jay Mac Show created the Roseambian comedy bit. You can listen to the Roseambian bit in this episode of The Nightside Project.
Roseanne claimed she was on Ambien when she sent out her racist tweets. Since her comment, a new sleep aid was developed called Roseambian. #Roseambian — Allowing you to have an excuse for going on racist rants. Side effects may include loss of your weird sitcom reboot and dry mouth. Ask your doctor if Roseambian is right for you.

In a racist reference to Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama White House aide, the infamous racist Roseanne Barr tweet said “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”. Twitter users were quick to screenshot the since-deleted tweet.

Roseanne Barr was quick to blame the sleep medication Ambien on the offensive tweet.
