Samantha Bee may have apologized to Ivanka Trump after calling her a 'feckless c**t' but a number of celebrities have since come out in support of the comedian and some have even agreed with her controversial comments.
Bee apologized to Ivanka and her viewers on Thursday for using the obscenity to describe the president's daughter on her TBS show Full Frontal the previous night.
The comedian used the slur towards the end of a segment about President Trump's immigration policies as she urged Ivanka to speak to her father about systems that separate children from their parents.
Several celebrities have come out in support of Samantha Bee even since she apologized for calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c**t' on her Full Frontal show on Wednesday night
'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***,' she said after showing a photo of Ivanka and her toddler son Theodore.
The incident quickly thrust Bee into the middle of the nation's political divide with the White House slamming the comments as 'vile and vicious'.
But a handful of celebrities backed Bee with fellow comedian Kathy Griffin being among the first.
'Please do not be hard on @iamsambee for apologizing. While I was hoping she wouldn't, I know first hand what it's like being put through the Trump wood chipper..what she's going through right now is crazy. All for a bleeped word. Comics held to higher standards than the president,' Griffin tweeted.
Actress Sally Field also weighed in and even had a go at Ivanka herself, saying: 'I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a c**t.
