Late night talk show host Samantha Bee found herself offering a quick apology after coming under fire for ridiculing a CPAC attendee for having a “Nazi” haircut, after learning he was actually a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy patient.
We deeply apologize for offending @_that_kyle in our CPAC segment. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece.

The remark, which can be seen here, was included in a video segment comparing current attendees at the conservative conference to past attendees.
“This time the bow ties were gone…replaced by Nazi hair.”
Kyle Coddington, a contributor to Outset magazine, was later identified as currently undergoing chemotherapy. Outset blasted Bee on social media, saying they were “appalled” by her “grotesque mocking” and stood behind their contributor.
Bee’s program “Full Frontal” edited Coddington out of the segment.
