Cable TV host Samantha Bee apologized via twitter on Thursday after her TBS show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” ridiculed a stage-4 cancer patient as having ‘nazi hair’.
Her program, like many other liberal shows, sent reporters to this year’s CPAC convention in Maryland to mock guests and speakers alike. During one particular segment, the show's correspondent commented on how many of those in attendance sported a particular haircut, often referred to as an ‘undercut’.
“This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair," the correspondent said as the camera flashed from person to person with the popular style.
One such person was a teenager named Kyle Coddington, who, according to his sister, wears his hair like that because he is battling stage-4 brain cancer.
She went to twitter to express her disgust.
Indeed, a GoFundMe page has existed since late 2016 on behalf of Coddington and his related illness.
"It seems that I have stage 4 glioblastoma. It's a very aggressive type of brain cancer. Currently, there is no cure, but there is a chance. The doctor said it all depends on how hard we go after it, and how my body responds to the treatment. I fully believe that God is still in the miracle-making business as well!" Kyle writes on the page.
Samantha Bee apologized to the teenager and his family on twitter.
We deeply apologize for offending @_that_kyle in our CPAC segment. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece.— Full Frontal (@FullFrontalSamB) March 9, 2017
This should be a lesson to most liberal commentators, who seem more interested in trafficking in nastiness these days than actually making a coherent point. Calling a stage-4 cancer patient, a teenager no less, a 'nazi' should force some of these 'comedians' to stop looking at people's haircuts and start looking in the mirror.
