Here Are All the Emails the FCC Received from People Complaining About Samantha Bee’s On-Air Profanity.

Last month, Mother Jones published a story titled, “Here Are All the Emails the FCC Received From People Complaining About ‘Roseanne’ Being Canceled.”

A reporter at Mother Jones filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to see the number of complaints filed about ABC’s decision to fire Roseanne Barr for a disparaging tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The responsive documents produce by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) totaled 14 pages, but a closer inspection revealed that nine of those complaints were actually about remarks made by another female television star, Samantha Bee.

In late May, Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless [expletive]” on her TBS show, “Full Frontal.” She later apologized and TBS said it would add more oversight to the comedian’s show.

Similarly to Mother Jones, NTK Network filed a FOIA to determine the scope of the American people’s outrage over Bee’s remarks. Whereas only three of the 14 FCC complaints compiled by Mother Jones actually addressed the remarks Barr made, NTK Network’s request for complaints about Bee returned 306 responses.

Take a look at each of them below (Warning: this document contains offensive language):
