Leave it to the left to make an intolerant Nazi joke about a man that is suffering from a debilitating form of brain cancer.
This is exactly what happened on a recent episode of Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal.”
In the segment, Bee criticized a man for having a “Nazi” haircut.
As Bee and her correspondent Michael Rubens discussed people meeting at the Conservative Political Action Conference, her correspondent claimed that the event was full of Nazi-looking people.
“This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair,” he said.
However, one of the young men they insulted, Kyle Coddington, 20, isn’t sporting a “Nazi” haircut by choice, but because he has BRAIN CANCER.
You read that correctly, the Full Frontal cast bashed an individual who has brain cancer.

The show eventually apologized for their mistake.
We deeply apologize for offending @_that_kyle in our CPAC segment. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece.

They also donated $1,000 to Coddington’s GoFundMe account.
While Coddington was appreciate of the support, he slammed the show for their decision to mock someone based on the way they look.
“I want to make it clear that half-apologizing for offending someone is not apologizing for making baseless accusations against people because of the way they look,” he wrote. “This kind of behavior should be rejected by both sides of the aisle.”
