TBS comedian Samantha Bee has apologized for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***“ during a monologue last night condemning President Trump's immigration policy that separates child immigrants from their parents.

The backlash: Many felt the crude language went too far. TBS deleted the video clip, and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the comment “disgusting” in a statement, adding that ”the collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling.”

The apology:

What she said: Bee was mocking a tweet Ivanka Trump posted of her hugging her daughter. "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***!”

  • This came shortly after Roseanne Barr’s popular show was cancelled after her racist tweet. Many on Twitter noted the contrast of the White House harsh statement on Bee, but silence on Barr.

The pushback:

CNN’s John King called for an apology, saying of the Bee’s comment, "Let me just say, one parent to another – parent of a daughter –  no, no, no!"

Not everyone was offended by Bee's line:
