State Farm becomes second sponsor to drop Samantha Bee over Ivanka Trumplur

State Farm insurance became the second company on Thursday to drop its sponsorship of comedian Samantha Bees TBS show Full Frontal following her vulgar slur directed at first daughter

We have asked TBS to suspend our advertising in the program and are reviewing any future placements. We constantly review programs to ensure alignment to our programming guidelines and brand values, State Farm said in a statementreported by The Wrap.

The companys decision comes just hours after the online car shopping site Autotraderannounced it had cut tieswith the show after Bee called Trump a feckless c—.

Bee apologized for the remark from the opening monologue of her show Wednesday, saying it was inappropriate and inexcusable. But the comedian had continued to facebacklash onlinefrom prominent media figures.

Other companies such as Discover credit cards held their sponsorship despite criticism from customers, noting on Twitter that editorial discretion and content are created by the individual program among its ad platforms.

Thank you for reaching out! As a national brand, our ads run on national broadcast, cable, digital, social, outdoor media, and just about everywhere in-between. Our media buys consistently change and reflect the diverse content and audiences we serve. Editorial direction… 1/2

…and content are created by the individual program. *Malina 2/2

The White Houseblasted Beeon Thursday following her insult directed at the presidents eldest daughter, saying Full Frontal is not fit for broadcast after the derogatory remark.

TBS indicated Thursday thatit would not punish Beeover the crude comment, saying Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and appropriate language she used.

Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it, TBS said.

The backlash came just days afterABC canceled its hit sitcom Roseanneamid outcry over a racist tweet its star Roseanne Barr sent taking aim at former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Barr also apologized for the comment and deleted the tweet.

Samantha Bee loses State Farm ads after Ivanka Trump slur

FBNs Trish Regan discusses Samantha Bees apology to Ivanka Trump.

At least two corporate sponsors including State Farm have suspended their advertising on TBSs Full Frontal with Samantha Bee after the television host and comedian directed a vulgar phrase at first daughter Ivanka Trump during a Wednesday broadcast.

We have asked TBS to suspend our advertising in the program and are reviewing any future placements, State Farm said in a statement first obtained by The Wrap. We constantly review programs to ensure alignment to our programming guidelines and brand values.

Autotrader said earlier Thursday that it had pulled its advertising from the program because of the content of Bees monologue.

The comments expressed by Samantha Bee were offensive and unacceptable and do not reflect the views of our company, the company wrote on its official Twitter account. As a result, we have suspended our sponsorship of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

At present, it is unclear if either company will permanently end advertising on the program.

Bees remark was made in response to a photo of Ivanka Trump hugging her son that was posted to the first daughters Twitter account. Trump critics had argued that the photo was insensitive given the administrations stance on illegal immigration and reports that authorities have been separating immigrant children from their parents in detention.

You know, Ivanka, thats a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dads immigration practices you feckless c—, Bee said during her weekly monologue.

Facing widespread criticism, Bee apologized to Trump for her use of the expletive, admitting that her languge was inappropriate and inexcusable.

I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it, Bee said.

TBS also apologized, calling Bees language vile and inappropriate.

Those words should not have been aired, TBS said. It was our mistake too, and we regret it.

Coke kingpin Douglas Spk busted for runng bestiality farm Washton ate

SEATTLE  A convicted e smuggler has been arrested for running what authorities say appears to be a bestiality farm inWashingtonstate in which visitors could engage in all sorts of twisted sex acts with animals.

Douglas Spinkwas arrested at his ramshackle, heavily wooded compound near the Canadian border along with a 51-year-old tourist fromGreat Britainwho is accused of having sex with three dogs.

Dozens of dogs, horses and pet mice were seized, along with what investigators described as thousands of images of bestiality and apparent child pornography. The mice were euthanized, saidWhatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo, whose office assisted federal agents in the case.

This stuff is just truly bizarre, he said. These were mice that had their tails cut off, they were smothered inVaselineand they had string tied around them.

It wasnt immediately clear whether other zoophilic tourists had been to Spinks farm, but Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan Roe said Friday, I expect there may have been other people visiting the property.

Spink has not been charged with any bestiality or child porn charges at this point, only with violating the terms of his supervised release.Stephen ClarkeofPeterborough, England, was arrested on state charges for allegedly abusing the dogs.

Spinks lawyer,Howard Phillips, insisted theres no evidence his client violated the terms of his release. Theres no hard evidence hes been engaging in bestiality at all, Phillips said.

Spink, who has a history of training and breeding dogs and horses, appeared inU.S. District CourtinSeattleon Friday and was ordered detained pending another hearing, set for April 30. He calls his operation Exitpoint Stallions Limitee and expounds at length on its Web site about his philosophy.

Are we unconventional in our approach to stallion care? Absolutely, he writes.

He later adds: We dont wall off sexual energy in our stallions as something dangerous or inappropriate, but rather channel that energy towards positive, safe, appropriate paths. Theres a proper time and place for it, and we work towards those sorts of skills rather than fighting un-winnable fights against deeply-rooted instincts.

Spink, 39, made a fortune inOregonbuying and selling small companies in the 1990s and was known as an adrenaline junkie, listing rockclimbing and base-jumping off cliffs, radio towers and bridges among his hobbies.

But by 2002 his wealth had evaporated. He filed for bankruptcy as creditors sought millions from him, and he began running e and marijuana across the border for a local drug kingpin.

Spink was arrested in 2005 after investigators pulled him over with a load of nearly 375 pounds (170 kilograms) of e, valued at $34 million. He was given a lenient, three-year sentence because of his extensive cooperation with investigators.

Since then, he has been on a five-year term of supervised release, during which time he must abide by all state, local and federal laws.

Under Washington law, its illegal to assist others in engaging in bestiality and breaking any state law would be a violation of Spinks release, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Authorities searched his farm Wednesday after prosecutors received a tip from a public defenders office inTennessee. The office reported that Spink had been calling them incessantly about a jailed defendant in a bestiality case in Tennessee.

That man,James Michael Tait, had previously admitted filming a man having sex with a horse in Washington state in 2005. The man Tait filmed died of internal injuries suffered during the incident. He received a minor sentence in the case because Washington had relatively weak bestiality laws at the time.

Its not immediately clear why Spink was calling Tennessee about the Tait case.

When agents searched Spinks home, they found a video of a man sexually abusing dogs and that man, Clarke, was still on the property, wearing the same clothes as in the video, Elfo said. He was charged with animal cruelty and made an initial appearance in Whatcom County Superior Court on Thursday.

Clarke was given a court-appointed defense lawyer for that appearance only and otherwise does not yet have an attorney.

Roe said Friday that Clarke had admitted his involvement to investigators.
