Executive Producer Miles Kahn of Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” TBS show urged viewers to tune in just before Bee’s profane, sexist slur of Ivanka Trump Wednesday night. Then, after her vulgar slur sparked outrage, he gloated over the publicity it was generating.
Kahn isn’t just the show’s executive producer – he’s also the director and writer – so, he knew what was coming when, at 10:32 PM ET, he tweeted an urgent call-out to fans, giving them about five minutes to tune in before Bee’s vulgar, on-air attack:“Hey! Watch @FullFrontalSamB NOW!”
Then, 13 minutes after the episode ended, he celebrated the attention Bee’s vulgarity was drawing on Twitter, snarking, “So, ‘feckless c**t’ seems to be trending,” followed by “So. Anything in the news?”
