Samantha Bee of ‘Full Frontal’ is one of the most horrendous anti-Trump offenders on all of late night.
Her entire show is dedicated to spreading unbridled vitriol towards Trump, his administration, and his family.
And now her career is on the brink.
Samantha Bee made national headlines when she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt.”
Bee opened her show last Wednesday attacking Ivanka for posting a picture with her son while children of illegal immigrants were being separated from their parents by ICE:
“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second-most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week. You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another: Do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless cunt! He listens to you! Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to f–kin’ stop it.”
Bee’s remarks received massive backlash and even her peers were horrified by her use of the epithet.
TBS and Bee issued an apology, with Bee stating:
“A lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the president’s daughter last week. It is a word I have used on the show many times trying to reclaim it. This time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line. I regret it and I do apologize for that.”
However, Bee has not escaped consequence. Variety reported that following the controversial remarks, nearly two-thirds of ‘Full Frontal’s’ advertisers pulled their ads for this week’s episode.
Time-slots for national brands like Taco Bell, Apple, Haagen-Dazs, and Jim Beam were replaced by network promos for TBS and TNT.
Autotrader actually suspended its ad sponsorship with the show, with State Farm soon following suit as well.
Thank you to those who reached out regarding our sponsorship of Full Frontal. The comments expressed by Samantha Bee were offensive and unacceptable and do not reflect the views of our company. As a result, we have suspended our sponsorship of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

What’s interesting is a similar situation happened to both Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity after they received the ire of the Hollywood elites.
What’s the popular expression about karma again?
Bee ended up addressing the controversy during this week’s episode.

But Bee never apologized specifically to Ivanka Trump. She generalized her apology to women and men instead of the person she actually made the remark about.
Yet liberal celebrities and journalists still fawned over her apology.
Advertisers who continue to sponsor ‘Full Frontal’ should be ashamed.
However, TBS may be be forced to cancel Bee’s show regardless.
You can’t produce a show if you don’t have advertisers.
