Samantha Bee’s ‘Domestic Abuse’ Jab Is a Sucker Punch to Twitter Users

”This isn’t a very feminist take,“ said one Twitter user

Like many in Hollywood, Samantha Bee took to Twitter Thursday during the Senate Intelligence Committee’s hearing of former FBI Director James Comey… and now she’s the one under fire.

Responding to a Donald Trump, Jr. tweet questioning why Comey continued to take Trump’s phone calls if he told Attorney General Jeff Sessions he didn’t want to be left alone with the POTUS, the “Full Frontal” host wrote, “This is basically a domestic abuse case.”

And the fire Twitter firestorm began. Soon after Bee’s tweet was posted, Twitter users reacted. “As someone who has friends that have been victims of domestic abuse, you should be ashamed of yourself for drawing this correlation!” one user tweeted. Others chimed in, saying that it was offensive to use domestic abuse as a joke.

Others still came to Bee’s defense.

And others still just didn’t care.

As of the time this article was published, Bee hasn’t responded to the backlash.
