"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me," Barr wrote, after retweeted many fans who had been defending her. "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweetin."
"It was Memorial Day too," she added. "I went too far and 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."
After tweeting that her sleep aide medication contributed to her racist remark, Sanofi -- the pharmaceutical company behind Ambien -- released their own statement on Twitter.
"People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world," reads the statement. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication."

In between her new posts, Barr retweeted a flurry of comments that ran the gamut condemning her, to celebrating her downfall, to full-on supporting her.
Barr finally addressed her conflicting bevy of back-and-forth apologies, remarks and retweets, telling critics that, if they don't like what she has to say, they don't have to read her posts.
"I'm sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers. so, go away if u don't like it. I will handle my sadness the way I want to. I'm tired of being attacked & belittled more than other comedians who have said worse," Barr wrote, without specifying which comedians she was referring to.
"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj," Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet, referring to Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran. The comment sparked an immediate backlash and lead to ABC nixing the show's upcoming second revival season, which had already been picked up for 13 episodes and was set to begin production in August.
