The network had previously asked her to tone down her controversial statements on social media.
She later tweeted that people should not defend her. "Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste". Barr later wrote that "i blamed myself. not ambien".
United States comedian Roseanne Barr said she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled" and blamed sleep aid Ambien for her tweet that compared a black former Obama administration official to an ape, a racist remark that sparked a wave of outrage. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment said in a statement on Tuesday.
She explained: "hey guys, don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but. losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more". Not surprised and I wouldn't doubt it being very true, ' another tweet said.

Barr said it was the result of "ambien tweeting", a reference to the common sleep aid medication. We're so sorry they were swept up in all of this and we give thanks for their remarkable talents, wish them well, and hope to find another way to work together down the road.
Barr, however, also went after the Roseanne co-stars who had voiced their "disappointment", including Michael Fishman, who plays her son D.J. Connor. "I went too far and do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible". They included one post that juxtaposed an image of Jarrett with an image of a "Planet of the Apes" actor - a comparison that led to her firing.
But Barr fired back: 'I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME. I made a mistake. "And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, "But I have taken a step back".
