TBS also issued an apology shortly after the Bee’s tweet: “Samantha Bee has taken the appropriate action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night. These words should not have been broadcast. It was our mistake, and we regret it.”
Ivanka Trump was criticized by various celebrities this week for a snap she shared her hugging her son in the midst of the reports of the Office of Refugee Resettlement lost track of 1,500 migrant children, in the last three months of 2017.
“Ivanka Trump, who works in the White House, chose after the second most aware of the tweet that we have seen this week,” Bee said, to quote Roseanne Barr racist tweet as the first.

I am very curious to see how CNN covers the Samantha Bee notes from last night. CNN and TBS are both owned by Turner Broadcasting

“He listens to you! On something tight and low-cut and telling your father to f-ing stop. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes,” she concludes.
The clip of Bee’s monologue was uploaded to her YouTube channel where the words “c—” and “f—” were not censored.

Bee’s show, “Full Frontal,” airs weekly on Wednesday’s on TBS, an asset of Turner Broadcasting System, which also owns CNN, TNT and HLN.
Bee is due to receive a special honor from the Television Academy on Thursday for “the promotion of social change” for her work on the show.
The host’s comments were criticized by the users of social media, with some calling for her show to be cancelled.
“If this statement was addressed to a child of a former president, Samantha Bee would be out of a job,” one social media user wrote.
“Roseanne deserved to get fired for her comment. Samantha Bee named Ivanka is a ‘c—‘ on air and Keith Olbermann routinely calls the President a ‘motherf—er.’ Do you think will be fired? Maybe see why so many Americans think that the media has a double standard of the liberals,” another tweeted.
Dan Gainor, the vice president of business and culture for the Media Research Center, told Fox News that the media was not on the Bee’s “hateful comments.”
“Immediately after the media in the right way criticized Roseanne Barr for a racist statement, Samantha Bee tries to outdo her by calling Ivanka Trump the ‘C’ word. Imagine if a conservative did this to Chelsea Clinton or the Obama daughters. We would never hear the end of it” Gainor told Fox News.
“The current media are freaking out about an incorrect [Chairman] Trump tweet to say ABC never apologized for Brian Ross is incompetent reporting or the stock market,” he said. “They are not cover by Samantha Bee. They would rather protect a discredited journalist the address of the nonsensical and hateful comments that come from one of their favorite TV people. ABC set in the media-approved standard this week for misconduct. When someone does something this disgusting, their show is cancelled.”
