Samantha Bee usually does no wrong, but she really stepped in it this time!
On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, a segment ran making fun of CPAC attendees, including men with partially shaved heads, who were called out for having “Nazi hair.”
Well, one of the men with a partially shaved head, named Kyle, turned out to be a cancer patient, and his sister, Megan Coddington, immediately blasted the show and Samantha for their rudeness.

Samantha quickly apologized for the incident, and we’re sure she was positively mortified.
The video of the segment could originally be found on YouTube, but has since been removed. In it, correspondent Michael Rubens could be heard narrating over images of attendees with shaved heads, saying:
“This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair.”
Of course they didn’t know about Kyle’s condition, but we’re so glad Samantha and crew apologized.
We’d also like to send Kyle our best wishes as he undergoes treatment.
