“I crossed the line. I regret it and I do apologize for it. The problem is, a lot of women have heard that word at the worst time in their lives, and don’t want it reclaimed. I don’t want to inflict more pain on them. I want this show to be challenging and to be honest,” she said on the show.

“I never intended it to hurt anyone except Ted Cruz,” she joked.

She also said she “didn’t care” that some men were offended and that she “hated that it distracted from more important issues.”

Samantha Bee is involved in some controversy after she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt” during a segment about immigration on last night’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

The White House responded today (May 31) with a statement.

“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,” she added.

Samantha Bee Slams Ivanka Trump, Uses Profane Statement That Sparks Controversy

Samantha Bee is under fire for a statement she made about Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second-most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Samantha said, referencing both Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet, as well as Ivanka‘s tweet spending time with one of her kids amid her immigration policy controversies. “You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another: Do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c*nt! He listens to you! Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to f*ckin’ stop it.”

Some public figures, like Megyn Kelly, were opposed.

“This is disgusting. How is this acceptable? And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne? You know the saying Love is Love? Well Hate is Hate,” Megyn posted.

Kathy Griffin, however, defended Samantha, writing, “Yes we can talk about it..but first let’s talk about this: 1. Ivanka is 36. Malia was 10 when she entered the White House, 2. Ivanka is a senior administration official.., 3. @iamsambee is a comic.”
