(Daily Caller) — A number of companies that once ran commercials during Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” have begun to pull out after she made a controversial joke aimed at Ivanka Trump.
Both Autotrader and State Farm severed ties with the network in the wake of outcries after Bee referred to President Donald Trump’s daughter as a “feckless c***” during the hostess’s Wednesday night broadcast.
“Thank you to those who reached out regarding our sponsorship of ‘Full Frontal,’” Autotrader said in a statement from its official Twitter account Thursday. “The comments expressed by Samantha Bee were offensive and unacceptable and do not reflect the views of our company. As a result, we have suspended our sponsorship of ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.’”
State Farm soon followed suit, telling TheWrap it had asked TBS “to suspend our advertising.”
