Comedian Samantha Bee sparked backlash a week ago when she called President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, a "feckless c***" on her show "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee." She finally addressed the controversy on a Wednesday night (June 6) episode of her show. Most details from this article come from reports by Deadline and the New York Times.

Samantha Bee released an apology to Ivanka shortly after the comments

Samantha Bee's comment was made in response to Ivanka posting a picture of herself with her child amid news of the inhumane and cruel immigration policies that Trump's administration has been doling out. People criticized Ivanka's post as tone-deaf.

The name calling received immediate backlash, especially from supporters of the POTUS and the Trump family. The White House's Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, called Samantha Bee's choice of words "vile and vicious." President Trump himself used Twitter, in his usual fashion, to criticize Bee and call for the cancellation of her show. Many conservatives reflected his opinion, as Bee's comments were made in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne," [VIDEO]which was canceled after the star of that show, Roseanne Barr, made a racist comment on Twitter.

Bee's vulgar comment was made during a segment about the White House's latest immigration policies [VIDEO]and its related scandals.

News of the federal government losing track of 1,500 immigrant children who were placed in temporary homes, with some added claims of the children ending up in human trafficking rings, has caused outrage around the world. The White House also announced a new policy, essentially a threat against undocumented immigrants, that threatens arrest and the separation of children from their parents when they arrive at the border of the United States. President Trump drew further backlash when he tried to blame Democrats for the cruel policy, though it was actually passed by his administration.

Bee began Wednesday night's episode with an apology

Wednesday night's episode of "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" was its first episode since the comment was made. "The Daily Show" alumni said that she often used the vulgar word on her show in an attempt to reclaim it, but digressed, "This time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line, I regret it, and I do apologize for that." Bee was mostly regretful that her choice of words took attention away from the real issue at hand; the immigration policy that is hurting innocent children and their families.

"Maybe we should all worry a little bit more about the niceness of our actions," Bee added to her opening monologue.
