BREAKING: Samantha Bee apologizes! – [UPDATE: TBS ISSUES STATEMENT]

Well that was quick. Samantha Bee just tweeted an apology on Twitter over calling Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless c***’ last night on her show:

Wow. Did Glenn Beck get to her? Or did TBS?

This came right after the White House’s Sarah Sanders issued this scathing response to Bee’s vicious language:

“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling. 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.”

CNN’s John King also called Bee’s comments ‘reprehensible’ and called on CNN and TBS to speak out against this:



I’ve also heard rumors that some of her sponsors started pulling out, but I’ve seen no evidence of that yet.

Dana Loesch responded to her apology this way:

I think she’s exactly right. While I do think most people will find out about this, it’s only fair that she apologize on air for the attack.

UPDATE: Apparently Bee did lose a sponsor:

UPDATE: Now TBS has released a statement:

As an aside, for people comparing this to the Roseanne debacle, Sean Davis makes a good point:
