Samantha Bee’s Advertiser Woes Continue
Samantha Bee, host of “Full Frontal” on TBS, has lost at least two-thirds of her advertisers since she dared to call first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt.”
Bee faced near-universal backlash after she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” for not opposing her father’s policies on illegal immigration and migrant children. (RELATED: TBS’s Samantha Bee Calls Ivanka Trump ‘Feckless C**t’)
Bee’s show had 19 advertiser spots on her show the night she lobbed the profane insult, but the following week she had lost more than two-thirds of those advertisers. (RELATED: Samantha Bee Loses Two-Thirds Of Advertisers After Profane Ivanka Insult)
According to Newsbusters, Bee’s show had not regained any advertisers in its second week since the controversy.
For her June 13 episode on Wednesday night, Bee had just six non-Turner-owned advertiser spots. Advertisers included Playstation 4, Consumer Cellular, and Wendy’s.
Sam Bee apologized for the incident on May 31, stating, “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.” (RELATED: Sam Bee Apologizes For Vulgar Remark About Ivanka Trump)
