Roseanne Barr continued her apologies Wednesday morning on Twitter, one day after ABC canceled her hit sitcom. 

The decision came after Barr tweeted that former Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American and was born in Iran, is like the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby."

Barr apologized for the racist comment and announced she was leaving Twitter, but she later returned with a new string of apologies and defenses, including blaming Ambien.

"guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me," Barr tweeted before later deleting it. "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-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please. ty."

On "America's Newsroom," Howard Kurtz lamented that some in the media are trying to link the controversy to President Trump, pointing out that he "had absolutely nothing to do with it."

In the sitcom's reboot, Barr - a big Trump supporter in real life - played "Roseanne Conner," who was vocal about her support of President Trump. The show's ratings success earned high praise from the president. 

"I think it reflects an irresistible urge when there's a big, negative cultural controversy for many in the mainstream media to turn it into a Trump negative controversy," he pointed out, adding that Barr has a long history of controversial political statements. 

The host of "Mediabuzz" said ABC took a "huge gamble" that Barr could temper her political statements and it "failed spectacularly."
