“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” has issued an apology after the show made fun of Kyle Coddington, who is a cancer patient suffering from stage 4 brain cancer. In a segment of the show, Bee sent a reporter to the CPAC conference (an annual meeting of young conservatives) and pointed out what she termed “Nazi Hair.” The haircut to which Bee is referring is the same favored by white supremacist Richard Spencer and many of his followers. However, the late show host’s segment received an immediate backlash.
Outset, the Conservative website where Coddington is a contributor, ran a story on the incident that gained a lot of attention and stated that Coddington “recently completed his first round of chemotherapy and radiation.”
Ann Coulter also commented on the bad joke.
Bee later apologized and pulled the segment featuring Coddington from her show’s online clips.
