Samantha Bee defends against any #MeToo backlash on Full Frontal

On last night’s episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bee opened her weekly TBS show by examining how there’s already a backlash against the #MeToo movement, or as Bee jokingly calls the backlash, the #YouTooLoud movement.

Tiffany Haddish loves Groupon so much, the online discount company decided to return the favor and make Haddish the company spokesperson! As the company explained yesterday: “Tiffany Haddish likes us. No, she really, really likes us. We were tickled when we heard her tell a story about taking certain A-listers on a Groupon swamp tour in New Orleans.
