Jon Stewart defends Samantha Bee

Bee, who spent more than a decade working as Stewart's Daily Show correspondent, apologized last week for her on-air slur against Ivanka Trump and Full Frontal advertisers State Farm and Autotrader suspended their sponsorship of the weekly show. While many on the right called for Bee's apology with Donald Trump even calling for "low talent Samantha Bee's [removal] for the awful language used on her low ratings show", several people on the left made a decision to side with her.

Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the terrible language used on her low ratings show? "They don't give a shit about the word 'c--,'" the Daily Beast quoted Stewart saying, alluding to the Trump administration.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the disgusting language used on her low ratings show?" he tweeted Friday morning.

"I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night", she said in a statement at the time.

The app even made it to number 3 in the finance category of the App Store before Apple pulled it down. Crypto wallets are also now officially legal, settling a gray area that has existed for months.

Ivanka Trump being called the c-word is not something that Samantha Bee should have apologized for, Jon Stewart says.

During an onstage Q&A at Clusterfest comedy festival over the weekend, the former Daily Show host was asked for his opinion on Bee's remark and subsequent apology to the First Daughter.

Stewart does have a point in regards to Trump's and his followers' response to Bee's usage of the word "cunt". Bee used the phrase in question during a segment urging the president's daughter to "do something" about her father's immigration policy that had resulted in the government separating some children living in the country illegally from their parents. "And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don't be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them". "That is probably-[Donald Trump] says that instead of 'Please, ' I'm guessing".

CNN has contacted a representative of Stewart for comment.
