During last night’s episode of Full Frontal, Samantha Bee took shots at Harvey Weinstein and other “Hollywood creeps.” As you may have heard, Weinstein has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple women, with some allegations going as far back as the 90s.

Bee first took shots at Weinstein’s apology, during which he blamed growing up in a time when people didn’t really worry about sexual harassment. She said: “Oh, give me a break, White Cosby! Nobody asked for your all-about-mea culpa. Don’t blame the ’60s and ’70s for your sh—y decision making. It’s serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo.

After going after conservative pundits who “popped a few Tic Tacs and moved on the Weinstein scandal like a bitch,” she said this wasn’t a political issue.

She added: “Look, both parties have had their share of sexual harassers and predators. This is about men. The surprise of their creepiness seems to be a surprise to everyone — except women. That’s why the men on my staff have a strict code of conduct. Sexual harassment is rampant in every profession imaginable: medicine, finance, technology, academia, publishing, restaurants. We tried to find one place where women were safe, so we googled ‘sexual harassment Antarctica’ and we found this article from five f—king days ago. You can’t even go to the most remote part of the planet without some dude swinging his cold, shriveled d—k your way. No wonder Harvey Weinstein thinks the entertainment industry will support him.

She concluded the rant by targeting other creeps in Hollywood. She said: “We know who you are… Women talk to each other. And we talk to journalists. And we talk to lawyers. It’s 2017. We don’t have to put up with this s—t. We are coming for you.
