Companies Suspend Ads From Samantha Bee's TV Show
The advertising decisions came after Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a vulgar name on Wednesday's edition of her TBS show.
At least two advertisers say they're suspending their ads from Samantha Bee's television show on TBS after she called Ivanka Trump a vulgar name.
During Wednesday's episode of "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee," the host lashed out at Trump for the timing of a picture she posted on Twitter. Trump posted a photo of her and her son amid news outlets reporting the government "lost" track of nearly 1,500 migrant children.
A day after the episode aired, both Autotrader and State Farm announced they were suspending sponsorship of Bee's show.
