A political comedy show, Full Frontal, hosted by Samantha Bee, mocked conservative cancer survivor Kyle Coddington, who had a partially shaved head due to brain cancer.
Samantha Bee showed a video on her show of Coddington from C-PAC and then Richard Spencer, a corresponded on the show, said Coddington had “Nazi hair”
“Please delete this episode. I look like a balding potato,” Coddington said in a tweet to Bee. In a followup post he said “Also, it’s not a Nazi haircut. Richard Spencer’s is, but mine’s from cancer.”
Thursday, it was reported by the Daily Mail that Samantha Bee was forced to apologize to Coddington by TBS.
Bee would issue an apology on her twitter and then the comedic segment was removed from YouTube and TBS’s website.
‘We deeply apologize for offending you and @_that_kyle. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece.
