On Thursday, May 31st, liberal comedian and late night talk show host Samantha Bee was under major fire for her vulgar remarks against First Daughter Ivanka Trump.

As reported earlier, Bee blasted Ivanka during Wednesday night’s episode of “Full Frontal,” calling Mrs. Trump a “feckless c***,” and additionally, suggested she “put on something tight and low cut” to confront her father about his immigration policies.

Bee was targeted by both sides of the political spectrum. Even Democrats felt her comments went too far; many pointed out the fact that Roseanne Barr was instantly fired for her vulgar remarks, but Bee still managed to keep her job.

Following the backlash, Bee issued an apology statement via social media Thursday afternoon.

“I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night,” Bee stated. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
