Other comedians, such Kathy Griffin, have stepped forward to defend Bee, though the late-night host did offer an apology on the comment that was approved by her show's producers, lawyers, and network censors. As previously reported, Bee came under fire for criticizing Ivanka Trump, and saying, "Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c**t", on her TBS series Full Frontal.

"I'm going to tell you something about Sam Bee, because I've known her for a very long time". The implication or - er - joke was that the president's daughter didn't care about the Mexican children being separated from their parents at the US border.

Ivanka Trump being called the c-word is not something that Samantha Bee should have apologized for, Jon Stewart says.
