An upcoming conservative conference denied press credentials to Samantha Bee’s television program just a few days after Bee made crude remarks about President Trump’s daughter.

The Centennial Institute announced in a press release Saturday that it rejected a request by the TBS show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” for press credentials for the Western Conservative Summit scheduled next week in Denver, Colorado.

Bee’s program is well known for sending camera crews to conservative events in efforts to create comedic bits after interviewing unsuspecting attendees.

“In 2016, Samantha Bee’s production team came to the Western Conservative Summit. They did not provide fair coverage,” said Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute and chairman of the Western Conservative Summit.

Hunt went on to say, “Instead, they bullied and harassed our attendees. Conservatives are tired of being mistreated by the liberal media. Shows like ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ are not intent on reporting but bullying and shaming conservatives. Her request for media credentials to the Western Conservative Summit has been denied.”

The denial of press credentials comes on the heels of Bee’s on-air use of a vulgar term to describe President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump. (RELATED: TBS’s Samantha Bee Calls Ivanka Trump ‘Feckless C**t’)

Bee later apologized for the remark after several of the show’s sponsors suspended their ads on the same day she was set to be honored by the Television Academy with other shows relating to social change. (RELATED: Sam Bee Apologizes For Vulgar Remark About Ivanka Trump)
