However, Bee will reportedly address the controversy on the next episode of the show, airing Wednesday evening, according to CNN.

"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", Bee's statement read. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. Bee has since issued an apology for her choice of words, while the Turner network has released a statement of its own, saying that such "vile words should not have been aired".

His comments came days after Walt Disney Co's ABC network canceled the popular USA television comedy "Roseanne" after its star Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist remark comparing a former top Obama administration official to an ape.

See you next Tuesday, Ivanka! While Bee's remark was completely inappropriate, her vulgarity pales in comparison to Barr's racism. She called the President's daughter as a "feckless c***" and what is more stunning is that the words are aired on TV without being censored.

"I'm going to tell you something about Sam Bee, because I've known her for a very long time". Despite that dire assessment of the political climate, however, Stewart says he's actually "incredibly optimistic" that the current state of affairs isn't a permanent climate that we'll all just have to sweat through forever. Bee talked about the remarks and the backlash at the Television Academy Honors awards.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the disgusting language used on her low ratings show", the United States' president asked in a new tweet.

Controversial media figures on the left and right took some serious heat this week, but only one deserved to lose their job.

The co-writer of the recent "Justice League" and director of "Avengers" fame is now the creator/executive producer of the ABC show "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D".
