There is a huge backlash against Samantha Bee after she used vulgar language to describe Ivanka Trump.
Bee apologized via Twitter saying, “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. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
The backlash is so immense, TBS had to issue an apology as well.
TBS apology stated, Bee “has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump,” and that “those words should not have been aired.”
This morning President Trump tweeted to defend his daughter. He tweeted, "Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show? A total double standard but that's O.K., we are Winning, and will be doing so for a long time to come!"
However, Bee is celebrated by Hollywood. She received a special honor from the Television Academy on Thursday for “advancing social change” for her work on the show.
