He said: "I was a tough week for the line".
Comedian Samantha Bee landed in hot water after calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c**t" on her TV show, Full Frontal.
You know, Ivanka, that's a lovely 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 cunt! "Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f-ing stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes", Bee said in her monologue. Her network TBS also said it was "our mistake too" in allowing the language on Bee's show on Wednesday.
TBS is happy that Bee apologised for the comment and gave no further information on whether there would be consequences. During her acceptance speech, however, Bee appeared to do the opposite - she instead defended her vulgar insults of the president and his family.
His comments came days after Walt Disney Co's ABC network canceled the popular US television comedy "Roseanne" after its star Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist remark comparing a former top Obama administration official to an ape.
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr.
His remarks capped a week when a debate over the language used by two television stars became an unexpected proxy for the country's political divide, with Bee's liberal-leaning audience on one side, and fans of the sitcom Roseanne and its Trump-supporting star on the other.
On Thursday afternoon, amid the backlash, Bee apologized. Sometimes I should probably have a filter.
Controversial media figures on the left and right took some serious heat this week, but only one deserved to lose their job.
