On Wednesday, Bee again said she "crossed a line".
Even many who agree with Bee's politics condemned her use of the word, though some comedians came to her defense when they believed the backlash - particularly from the Trump administration - had gone overboard. "I was like, 'Look, man, one white woman calling another white woman a word is not the same as a white person calling a black person an ape".
After discussing her role as a comedian, Bee stated plan and simple, "I am, I'm really sorry that I said that word, but you know what?"
"Many men were also offended by my use of the word", she added, "I do not care about that". "I crossed the line, I regret it and I do apologize for that". The Time Warner-owned cable network filled the commercial breaks of her program largely with promos for other programs on TBS and TNT, such as "Drop The Mic", "Claws", and "Conan".
The apology echoed another that Bee made last week, a day after her comment caused a firestorm that led to advertisers dropping the program and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders labeling the host "vile and vicious".
To drive her point home, Bee finished her monologue and went directly into another segment about immigration, knowing that she would have a curious audience tuning in to see her reaction. President Trump also added to the chorus by tweeting, "Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the awful language used on her low ratings show?"

England series great opportunity to move on: Paine
Paine, alongside Langer at Lord's, explained: "The thing we've spoken about is the difference between abuse and banter". We're going to be speaking, trying to put pressure on teams as we usually do.
"I would do anything to help those kids", she explained.
Bee continued to explain that while she has tried "reclaim" the word many women have heard the word at the "worst moments of their lives".
"I hate that this distracted from more important issues. So to them, I am also sorry".
"And look, if you are anxious about the death of civility, don't sweat it", Bee said. Maybe we should worry a little about the niceness of our actions.
Bee had called Ivanka Trump a vulgar term in an attempt to encourage her to speak to her father about changing a policy where children of people entering the country illegally are being detained.
"Civility is just nice words", she said.
