Samantha Bee Loses Two-Thirds Of Advertisers After Profane Ivanka Insult
Comedienne Samantha Bee has reportedly lost more than two-thirds of her advertisers since she called first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.”
Last week, Bee said on her TBS show “Full Frontal” that Ivanka Trump is a “feckless cunt” for not opposing her father’s policies on immigration and migrant children. (RELATED: TBS’s Samantha Bee Calls Ivanka Trump ‘Feckless C**t’)
Bee apologized for the comments on her show Wednesday night but did not offer a direct apology to Ivanka Trump and seemed to blame the media for focusing so much on her “potty-mouth.” (RELATED: Samantha Bee Scapegoats Media In On-Air Apology: ‘Sorry For Breaking America’)
According to Newsbusters, there were only six national advertisement spots on Wednesday night’s show, compared to 19 spots on the show last week (June 30).
This week’s show was mostly filled with advertisements for other TBS and TNT shows. The remaining six national advertisers included Playstation 4, Cascade, and upcoming movies like “Oceans 8” and the new “Jurassic World.”
Orkin, Snickers, Jim Beam, and other companies that advertised on the show last week were conspicuously absent this time around.
