“Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting — it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t… but don’t defend it please,”
– Roseanne, blaming her racist tweets, which got her show cancelled, on the drug Ambien.
What was the maker of Ambien’s response?:
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.

The best comment on the twitter thread from Sanofi’s Roseanne rebuttle has to be “I’m snot crying right now!”. We agree, the response from the makers of Ambien had us in laughing tears.
