TBS, Under Pressure From One of Its Stars, Apologizes for Controversial Video

Jul 26, 2016  •  Post A Comment

TBS issued an apology this morning for a video that sparked a backlash — including a scolding from one of the cable channel’s own stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Samantha Bee, whose TBS show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” is the only late-night talk show hosted by a woman, told TBS in a tweet to “delete your account” after the network posted a video likening Hillary Clinton’s laugh to that of wild hyenas.

Bee quickly deleted her tweet, indicating she had second thoughts about it. But TBS issued an apology this morning, saying in a statement: “This post was obviously a poor attempt at humor and has been taken down. Moving forward we’ll leave political satire to professionals like Samantha Bee.”

The 24-second video posted by TBS was reportedly titled “Hillary Clinton’s Call of the Wild,” and interspersed a laughing Clinton with footage of a pack of wild hyenas making cackling sounds, THR notes.
