Samantha Bee struggling to regain advertisers (13 sponsors dropped her)

A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May.

The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media.

"You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6 episode, but the damage was done as her advertisers dropped her.

Samantha Bee's "Full Frontal" lost 13 advertisers after her Ivanka Trump remarks. (Turner)

Before the vulgar remark, Bee's TBS show had 19 advertisers but when she apologized on the June 6 episode, she was down to a mere six and has been unable to gain them back weeks later, a new Newsbusters report shows.

Who are the 13 that dropped her? Good for them.

Who are the 6 who stayed? Bad for them.

Hope your show crashes, Samantha. No, I don’t mean that in a nice way, either.

From website: these peeps stayed:

Bee had just six non-Turner-owned advertiser spots. Advertisers included Playstation 4, Consumer Cellular, and Wendy’s.

Samatha B** should be relegated to the dustbin of history. The ‘comedians’ who only work from hatred of Trump, are boring. These ‘entertainers’ need to take a page from Michael Jordan ‘ Republicans buy shoes, too’.

Kinda proves the point that the ‘conservative’ (or at least not SJW PC compliant) that get cancelled has nothing what-so-ever to do with ad revenue or viewer numbers.

Online car marketplace Autotrader called Bee’s comments ‘unacceptable’ as it announced it was withdrawing AutoTrader from advertising on her show. “Thank you to those who reached out regarding AutoTrader’s sponsorship. 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 AutoTrader’s sponsorship of Samantha Bee’s show,” an AutoTrader Twitter statement read.

AutoTrader was followed by State Farm Insurance’s ad withdrawal based on Bee’s not reflecting their values. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5795027/Trump-wants-Samantha-Bee-FIRED-called-Ivanka-feckless-c-national-television.html#ixzz5HBrmFCt6

Her ratings have tanked the past year so advertisers may decide their product promotion money is better spent elsewhere.
No money, the network will drop her.

She may be gone within the year.

Good info Liz. I was looking for such a resource. Hopefully others will join me in sending a short e mail to their corporate web site encouraging them to stay the course.

Prediction: She learns nothing from this, keeps complaining and talking about “free speech”.
