Breaking: Samantha Bee just got dropped

By

It’s happening. The first advertisers has dropped Samantha Bee after she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—“. The advertiser, Autotrader, has dropped their sponsorship of Samantha Bee’s show.

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.

Autotrader just wrote:

The second, Orkin Pest Control. The company said they will let their last ad run the course.

Thanks for your concern. Our ad schedule isn’t specific to any show and is part of a national media buy. The schedule where one ad appeared on this show has run its course. – Orkin Pest Control

Conservatives are calling for more advertisers to drop Bee’s show. Here’s a list:

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… 1/2

Moments ago, Bee admitted she “crossed” the line, but is it enough?
