Late night comedian Samantha Bee apologized Thursday for calling first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.”
Bee said on her TBS show Wednesday night that Ivanka Trump is a “feckless c**t” because she will not oppose her father’s immigration policies on migrant children. (RELATED: TBS’s Samantha Bee Calls Ivanka Trump ‘Feckless C**t’)

“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,” Bee said in a statement released through TBS. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called Bee’s comments “vile and vicious” in an earlier statement to The Wrap. (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Slams Samantha Bee For ‘Vile And Vicious’ Attack On Ivanka)
“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,” Sanders said.
