Well, this might make things a bit awkward around the water cooler for a day or two.
Samantha Bee ended up locking horns with TBS, the network that broadcasts her show, over a tweet from their official account that compared Hillary Clinton‘s laugh to that of a hyena.
The Full Frontal host has been passionate in her political takedowns since the launch of her show, and her recent episodes have been all about the coverage of the Republican National convention last week. This week marks the start of a very contentious Democratic National Convention, and TBS network tweeted out a video from The Heckler on Monday night that was captioned “Move over Donkey! There’s a new mascot in town…#ImWithHyena.”
The video is called “Hillary Clinton’s Call of the Wild,” and it juxtaposes Clinton’s laugh with the calls from a pack of wild hyenas. Bee apparently did not appreciate this, and she took a leaf out of Clinton’s book when she gave her network a little bit of advice:
Both Bee and the network have deleted their respective tweets, and the controversial video is no longer available on The Heckler, a property of TBS.
