That Was Quick: Netflix Drops The Axe On Michelle Wolf’s Show
Netflix has officially announced the cancellation of Michelle Wolf’s show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf,” on Friday afternoon.
Several specific episodes of Wolf’s show received tremendous backlash. In one episode in particular, she dedicated an entire segment as to why abortions were important to American society and celebrated them. In another episode, she compared the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, to herpes.
“Is your nickname herpes? Because you’re not necessarily the most dangerous person in the administration, but you’re very unpleasant, totally incurable and you always show up when we’re about to get f*cked,” Wolf said in an episode that premiered last month.

Wolf also unveiled a very controversial sketch that depicted ICE — with Wolf herself as Department of Homeland Security head Kirstjen Nielsen — as ISIS. Illegal immigrants were portrayed as happy families. The ICE agents, in contrast, were depicted as stupid thugs just looking for an excuse to attack someone.

Wolf and the Trump administration have been at odds since she went after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. (RELATED: MICHELLE WOLF ATTACKS SARAH SANDERS AGAIN, CALLS HER PERSONALITY ‘UGLY’)
