Advertisers start pulling out of Samantha Bee’s show Full Frontal

Advertisers start pulling out of Samantha Bee's show Full Frontal

Samantha Bee has come under extreme criticism after she made a vile remark on her show ‘Full Frontal’  attacking Ivanka for not stopping her father’s immigration policies.

“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 c**t!”

Now as a result of the backlash advertisers have started pulling out of her show ‘Full Frontal.”

A car trading website became the first company to pull its advertisements from TBS’s “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” after host Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t” on Wednesday night.

In a statement, Autotrader wrote: “Thank you to those who reached out regarding our sponsorship of Full Frontal. 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.”

This was followed by State Farm, which announced in a statement to TheWrap Thursday it had “asked TBS to suspend our advertising in the program, and are reviewing any future placements,” adding that it would “review” the show “to ensure alignment to our programming guidelines”

But not all advertisers on Bee’s show decided to leave yet.

Discover said in a statement on Twitter Thursday that “As a national brand, our ads run on national broadcast, cable, digital, social, outdoor media, and just about everywhere in-between, Our media buys consistently change and reflect the diverse content and audiences we serve. Editorial direction and content are created by the individual program.”
