Comedy Central’s Samantha Bee is getting roasted on Twitter after she used her show to attack the digital media platform PragerU and claim that it’s “dangerous” “conservative propaganda.”
Bee made the claims in a Twitter thread promoting a segment from her Full Frontal with Samantha Bee show titled “Prager U Wants You! (To Become a Conservative)” where she wrote:
“Prager U is actually dangerous. They’re reaching a new, younger audience with bullsh*t conservative propaganda. They trick kids into thinking their videos are educational even though Prager U is as much of a real college as Monsters University.”
The tweet was blasted by thousands of Twitter users who pushed back against Bee and showed support for PragerU.
PragerU responded shortly after with a Joey and Chandler laughing GIF before encouraging people to join PragerU for free.
“Fortunately you aren’t tricking anyone into thinking you’re doing comedy,” tweeted talk show host Dave Rubin.
Political commentator Mark Dice tweeted: “You’ve tricked moronic cable viewers into thinking you’re actually a comedian.”
Author Christina Sommers, the director of IWF’s Center for Progress and Innovation Julie Gunlock, Blaze TV host Lauren Chen, and other Twitter users poked fun at Bee’s claim that PragerU is dangerous and shared their favorite “dangerous” videos from PragerU’s library.
Twitter users Rand Steward and Victor Rivas also pointed out that Bee’s attack on PragerU is likely to encourage more people to watch PragerU’s content and donate.
Despite getting ratioed and being mocked for her claims about PragerU, Bee continued attacking the platform in subsequent tweets.
