In a statement regarding her comments, Barr explained how she ended up tweeting about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and that she doesn't want people defending her.

On Wednesday, Barr said that it was tweeting under the influence of the prescription sleep aid Ambien that led her to post a racist remark.

Ambien's manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, lists warnings and precautions for the drug that include a section on "Abnormal Thinking and Behavioral Changes" - side effects that can include a lack of inhibition.

Barr is also not the first to use what has come to be known as the "Ambien defense". But, the comedian was back on Twitter nearly instantly, going on an hours-long nighttime jag that saw her re-tweeting conspiracy theories from alt-right figures and supporters lashing out at the uproar over Barr's original comment and claiming that her racist language was a result of too much Ambien. ABC cancelled the show within hours. It's unclear what "statements" Trump is referencing in the tweet, but it likely relates to ABC News' coverage of his presidency.

Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment, declared that Barr's statement was "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". Several networks said it was removing reruns of her show.

Barr faced repeated backlash in recent months for stoking conspiracy theories online.

In another tweet, Barr called billionaire Democratic donor and a Holocaust survivor George Soros "a Nazi" who "turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in concentration camps & stole their wealth".
