Samantha Bee loses sponsors over Ivanka Trump ‘feckless c–t’ comment

Autotrader has decided to suspend its sponsorship of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” after the host called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” on the show Wednesday night.

“Thank you to those who reached out regarding our sponsorship of Full Frontal,” the company said on Twitter Thursday. “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.”

But not every advertiser on Bee’s show decided to leave.

“As a national brand, our ads run on national broadcast, cable, digital, social, outdoor media, and just about everywhere in-between,” Discover said in a statement on Twitter Thursday. “Our media buys consistently change and reflect the diverse content and audiences we serve. Editorial direction and content are created by the individual program.”

Bee made her divisive remarks about Ivanka Trump during her opening monologue Wednesday, as part of her criticism of the first daughter for not doing more about the president’s immigration policies. “Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c—t!” Bee said.

“He listens to you. Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f—ing stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes,” she continued.

The comedian faced backlash for the comment, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the statement was “vile and vicious.”

“The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling,” Sanders told TheWrap on Thursday. “Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.”

Bee apologized on Thursday, saying that using the c-word was “inappropriate and inexcusable.”

“I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night,” she said in a statement. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
