How TBS Plans to Prevent Further Problems With Samantha Bee

Jun 6, 2018  •  Post A Comment

After “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee stirred up a hornet’s nest by calling first daughter Ivanka Trump a “c–t,” TBS will be keeping a closer eye on the controversial late-night comedian, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.

“Following the backlash, network management will have more scrutiny over Bee’s show, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Hollywood Reporter,” THR reports. “The plan is for management to work with the show to prevent another incident that could potentially scare advertisers and draw condemnation from both sides of the political aisle. (TBS declined to comment on the record.)”

THR adds: “The network had previously given Bee essentially full creative license, with a source close to the company saying that management has supported her artistic vision of the show.”

Bee apologized after the incident and TBS sent out a strong statement criticizing her “vile and inappropriate language.”

  1. Yeah, RIGHT ! Do they REALLY think we’re gullible enough to accept this weak response?? EVERYBODY at the network knew what she was going to do before she kicked the hornets nest. From management, to legal, to camera people and producers. They pulled this stunt because nobody watches this trashy show. Even negative publicity, is good publicity if nobody knows who you are.

    • Poor fragile one can’t take the heat but gives it right out.

  2. Oh please…our pres has said worse. Go away snowflakes…

  3. Anyone else would be fired.

  4. For those who label those of us who were ticked off by Bee’s language as “snowflakes,” you’re using the term incorrectly. Snowflakes are those who feel the need for a safe space or a therapy dog or a coloring book to handle the realities of life, such as elections or microagressions, etc. I don’t need a safe space. I’m fine! I just don’t think it’s right to use such a vulgar term to describe someone who hasn’t done a damn thing to deserve it. You hate the prez; then hate the prez. But Ivanka is not the one deserving of the venom. The left has lost perspective.

  5. Do you mean, the left had a perspective in the recent past!)(&($(^%**$WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!
