“Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee apologized for a segment on her TBS show Wednesday night that made fun of a man’s haircut.

In the segment about this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Bee mocked an attendee saying his haircut resembled a Nazi.

“This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair,” the video narrates while focusing in on 20-year-old student Kyle Coddington.

It turns out, Coddington has a partially-shaved head because he is battling brain cancer.

“When @iamsambee makes fun of your brother for having ‘Nazi hair,'” Coddington’s sister tweeted at the comedian. “He actually has stage 4 brain cancer, but whatever floats your boat.”
