TBS scrubs entire episode of 'Full Frontal with Samantha Bee' from all platforms after uproar

TBS has removed Samantha Bee's entire offensive "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee's" episode, which featured comments by the host who called Ivanka Trump a "feckless c**t," according to The Wrap.

What's a brief history?

During the Wednesday airing of Bee's show, she called Ivanka Trump a "feckless c**t."

She also suggested that President Donald Trump's daughter use her feminine charms and sexuality to sway her father's policies.

On Thursday, Bee apologized for the comment, saying, "I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers to using an expletive on my show to describe her last night."

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

TBS also apologized, saying, "Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night. Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it."

On Thursday night, however, Bee seemed to at least slightly distance herself from the previous day's apology.

In an award acceptance speech, Bee said that Americans would be better served to ponder the plight of illegal immigrants' treatment rather than focusing on "one bad word."

What's happening now?

According to the outlet, TBS pulled Wednesday's entire episode from its homepage as well as the show's YouTube channel.

The episode is also no longer available to stream on Amazon Prime, Vudu, or iTunes.

A representative for TBS also said that the episode "will not be returning online in either an edited or unedited capacity," according to the outlet.
