When Does Samantha Bee Lose Her TV Show? [VIDEO]

If the last few days have set the rules on how you can get a TV show canceled, then Samantha Bee should be losing her TV show any minute now. Annnnnyyy minute now.

What? Are you telling me that *gasp* THERE’S A DOUBLE STANDARD??

What Roseanne Barr said was vile and awful – and don’t forget that amidst her ugly comments regarding Valerie Jarrett, she was also trolling Chelsea Clinton. Samantha Bee went straight up vulgar and gross on Ivanka Trump regarding the cute picture she posted of herself and her son that drove the left batty. And Samantha Bee scripted it and said it on camera.

“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second-most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee 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 cunt!”

The remark drew loud cheers and applause.

The show thought enough of Bee’s Ivanka rant to post it as its own stand-alone video on the “Full Frontal” YouTube channel.

Bee added in her advice to Ivanka Trump that she should “put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to fucking stop it.”

(NOTE: Since this post was published, the show’s YouTube Channel has removed both videos that showed this clip. This is the CNN coverage that shows the clip, with appropriate bleeping.)

Is this the new standard in addressing presidential daughters? If Roseanne had skipped Valerie Jarrett and said this about Chelsea Clinton (instead of her crazy “you’re married to a Soros” rant), she would have still been fired. Because this is just grotesque.

But Samantha Bee, who is known to be an awful person (forget the bad comedian part), will probably just skip away from this one.

The problem is, people noticed the glaring double standard.

Even Dictionary.com noticed.

So far, this is TBS Network’s response:

We all know TBS, Turner Broadcasting, and Time Warner will do absolutely nothing unless it hurts the bottom line, so apparently it’s fair game for Samantha Bee to call Ivanka Trump a vile word because she knows her audience approves.

I’m being perfectly consistent here. ABC had every right to fire Roseanne Barr (though they knew they bought a bag of crazy and gave her a primetime show, so their Captain Renault-like protestations are laughable). TBS can keep Samantha Bee if they like, knowing that they have now condoned the use of this kind of language and therefore give up any moral authority to police anyone else’s speech. These are private companies that can do what they like when it comes to promoting or condemning the speech that their employees use.

What they cannot keep doing is expecting the public at large to not notice the flaming hypocrisy, or continue giving them a pass just because of who they like or dislike.

The pressure is on.

Perhaps this is why?

Free speech is not free from consequences. Remember that the First Amendment only protects you from government coming after you for speech.

Will people accept the apology?

This bears remembering – Samantha Bee’s show is a scripted show. It’s not off-the-cuff stand up. This vicious language was written down on paper, filmed, and broadcasted on TBS, and no one said BEFORE this that “huh, maybe this might backfire”?

Here is TBS Network’s official response, which is essentially “her fault, our bad”:

The apology needs to be as widely broadcasted as the slur. It’s then up to viewers and sponsors to decide what Full Frontal With Samantha Bee‘s future looks like.

    The c-word is the most reviled word in American English. In contrast, certain social groups have free license to use the n-word. There is no socially acceptable context for the c-word.

  • SFC D says:

    Samantha Bee is exactly the type of feckless C**T that I would not want my daughter to look up to. Sam can always serve as a shining example of “what not to do”.

  • Bob Brady says:

    The only award Samantha Bee should received is a bar of Ivory Soap in her mouth.

  • Scott says:

    Yeah, if anyone on the right had said the same about Chelsea Clinton, or either of the JEF’s daughters, and (rightfully so), the media would have come unglued… but I guess rude, vulgar, crass and inappropriate “humor”/comments are just to be expected from the left. It’s only shocking / wrong if it comes from someone on, or perceived to be on the right…

    David Lentz says: “The c-word is the most reviled word in American English.”

    Undoubtedly it is a word that has always been beyond acceptable, especially in mixed settings, but it is now, increasingly, a favourite word of the left and openly used, even by women, to revile others with whom they do not agree. Presenters/would-be comedians on an Australian Broadcasting Corporation [national, government funded] TV station recently demonstrated their lack of imagination and puerile vocabulary by using the C-word. Of course they may do so with impunity as the Australian ABC is completely left-leaning from top to bottom though, as a taxpayer funded entity with a billion dollar budget, it is meant to be neutral.

    Of one thing I am certain – and the attacks on this mother and child demonstrate it well – hate is the primary ‘essence’ or ingredient of Social Justice Warriors the world over, closely followed by hypocrisy and an inability to think logically.

    Heck, it will be *more* widely broadcast – because the media will play it up as “see, nothing to this, she apologized, move along now.” Unlike most corrections, this will get more play than the original crap did on the LSM channels.
