Samantha Bee issued a half-hearted on-air apology for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t” this week — but it seems not all advertisers are buying it.
There were only six national advertisement spots on “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” on Wednesday night, compared to 19 spots on last week’s show, according to NewsBusters.
“TBS mostly filled the June 6 program, the first since the original remarks, with commercials promoting other TBS and TNT shows. There were only six national spots,” NewsBusters reported. “They included: Playstation 4, Cascade, upcoming movies like Oceans 8 and the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Also, the EPIX TV show Deep State and AMC’s Dietland.”
Two major advertisers, State Farm and Autotrader, announced they would no longer be advertising on Bee’s show,. However, other companies quietly failed to return this week as well, including Taco Bell, Snickers, and Discover.
Bee’s attack on Ivanka Trump centered around an innocent photo that the first daughter posted of her holding her 2-year-old son.
"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,” Bee said on her TV show.

It seems the disgusting attack has come at a high price for Bee.
