‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ Apologizes For Mocking Man With Cancer

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” has issued an apology after mocking a man named Kyle Coddington, who has cancer, during a segment on Wednesday night’s show. 

In the now-removed segment, “Full Frontal” correspondent Michael Rubens goes to CPAC to find out if “conservatism is still a thing.” At one point, Coddington, a contributor for Outset magazine, appears on-screen as the narrator jokes, “This year, the bow ties were gone and replaced by Nazi hair.” 

“We deeply apologize for offending @_that_kyle,” the show tweeted, noting they were unaware of Coddington’s illness and have removed him from the piece. The clip no longer appears on the “Full Frontal” Facebook and YouTube pages (though Outset has a copy of it).

Outset also called out the show and called the segment a “sick attempt at a joke.” 

Coddington had his own thoughts on the segment:
