Watch Samantha Bee's Stinging Response to the Orlando Shooting

Watch Samantha Bee's Stinging Response to the Orlando Shooting

Less than 48 hours after the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., Samantha Bee decided to use her next show as an outlet to express her rage — an anomaly for late-night television hosts responding to tragedies.

"After a massacre, the standard operating procedure is that you stand on stage and deliver some well-meaning words about how we will get through this together, how love conquers hate," Bee said in her seven minute monologe adding, "And that is great! That is beautiful. But you know what? F*ck it. I am too angry for that. Love does not win until we start loving each other enough to fix our f*cking problems."

The talk-show host also confronted critics who may argue she wants to take guns away after watching her show. "Yes. The ones that mow down a room full of people in seconds? Yes, I do want to take those guns away."
