    A popular comedian and TV personality offered her apologies to Ivanka Trump for using an expletive while verbally attacking her.

    Samantha Bee, comedian and host of her own TV show, called Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, blasted Ivanka Trump during the show by calling her a "feckless c*nt" – a term that BBC described as "widely viewed as the most offensive epithet to call a woman."

    She reportedly made that statement while chastising Ivanka over migrant issues in the United States.

    Bee later apologized to Ivanka on Twitter for using an expletive, saying that she "crossed a line" and deeply regrets it.

    ​Some people blasted Bee on social media, comparing her outburst to the recent scandal involving Roseanne Barr.

    ​Others, however, defended Bee, claiming that she didn’t have to apologize at all.
