Some of the most well-known Hollywood stars are sounding off about the Samantha Bee’s comments calling White House advisor Ivanka Trump a “cunt.”
Prolific director Judd Apatow called the insult “right on target.”
“It’s weird that Trump calls nations shitholes and people animals and rapists and sons of bitches and one strong word – which is right on target- is found offensive,” Apatow said.

Left-wing Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore called Bee’s rant “brilliant.”
“Ha! The White House today, still not denouncing Roseanne’s racism, tries to confuse the issue by going after Samantha Bee’s brilliant rant against Ivanka last night. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/b5f-uu1h8_w SAM BEE: TRUTH-TELLER!”

Infamous male feminist Joss Whedon thinks Bee was being “too kind.”
Ivanka legitimized trump by being pretty & seeming sane, & libs created a (kinda sexist) Rapunzel narrative that she was ‘trapped’. She’s from a crime family, she married into a crime family, she’s a grown up. She will do as much damage as she can get away with. Sam was too kind.
Bee’s were met with extreme backlash from advertisers of her TBS late-night show to the White House.
State Farm and Autotrader suspended their advertiser sponsorship with Full Frontal. Bee issued an apology, which was applauded by TBS.
“Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night,” TBS said in a statement. “Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it.”
Below is a roundup of celebrity reaction to Bee’s comment.
Not quite as offensive as making it policy to separate children from their parents. Which I interpreted as your entire point. This world has gone mad. Everyone. Every single one. https://t.co/vKZgJByPF8
I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a cunt.
Cunts are powerful, beautiful, nurturing and honest.
That was the wrong word for Samantha Bee to have used . But mostly because ( to paraphrase the French ) Ivanka has neither the warmth nor the depth.
Re: the Samantha Bee kerfuffle. Remember when Michelle Obama said, “When they go low, we go high”? Remember how well that worked for her husband during his Presidency? Remember how well it worked in 2016?
Getting angry. Fighting back.
This Samantha Bee thing is about racists denying racism. They’re not out to get her, they’re out to inflict more violence on Black Americans by pretending to not understand the difference between a white woman insulting another white woman and blatant racism. I don’t buy it.
but when she said it she … i mean, you can’t expect a comedian to play by the same … look, if we were in the u.k. and somebody used that word, we wouldn’t even … yeah, i got nothin … https://t.co/uzuJNjxyTZ
I wish 1992 Roseanne Barr was on Twitter because she’s have her sister Samantha Bee’s back & be freaking hilarious about it!!!
We are all cunts today. ✊🏼
I hate that word, but Samantha Bee can use it however she wants. It’s not steeped in generations of racism and hate. It’s a vagina, for fuck’s sake.
Honestly I think Samantha Bee was being generous.
If you’re scolding someone for using salty language, it just shows that you know you’ve lost the argument
I’ve had 24 hrs to think about this Roseanne thing. She should have been fined $1,000,000 paid to a charity chosen by Valerie Jarrett. She apologized & a STIFF fine would have made amends & saved 100’s of jobs. A win win.This could work for others too. Right Samantha Bee?
