Despite this, the sincerity of Roseanne's apology has since been widely questioned, after she re-tweeted a series of supportive messages.

Nevertheless, Ambien became a trending topic on Wednesday. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication", it tweeted.
