Less than a day after Samantha Bee called president Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—t,” during an episode of her TBS show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Wednesday, May 29, the Full Frontal host is saying she’s sorry.

The 48-year-old comedian took on Thursday, May 30 Twitter to issue an apology coming under fire following her words toward the 36-year-old.

The statement read,

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. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.

The vulgar slur came toward the end of the 48-year-old's late night show while she was discussing the U.S. president’s immigration policies.

Samantha previously called out Ivanka for posting a picture with her child after the reports that the Office of Refugee Resettlement has “lost track” of 1500 children due to her dad's policies.

At the time, Samantha noted that “tearing children away from their parents is so evil”. 

During her rant, Samantha said,

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—t! He listens to you! Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to f—ing stop it.

Following her comments, Sarah Sanders, the White House spokesperson, said in the statement to US Weekly,

The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling. 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.

White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham added,

The double standard is truly astounding. Time and again the Trump family and members of this Administration are subjected to false reporting, hateful rhetoric and outrageous lies all in the name of freedom of speech or comedy, yet the main stream media stays silent.

As previously reported, Ivanka received backlash after posting a picture holding her son Theodore, 2 on Sunday, May 27.

Halsey was one of those celebrities who express their feelings of disgust toward the fashion designer’s poor timing.
