In a report about the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Samantha bee mocked an attendee by saying his haircut resembled that of a Nazi.

However what she didn’t know was that this “Nazi” was actually a man with stage 4 brain cancer.

Bee apologized on Twitter and made a $1,000 donation to a GoFundMe page to help with Coddington’s treatment expenses.

@meg_kelly16 We deeply apologize for offending you and @_that_kyle. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece

This man with stage 4 brain cancer appeared on Fox News to defend himself and express his issues with Samantha Bees comments.

“It’s kind of a half-apology I would say. The effects of this go much further than just me and an illness itself. It’s just inconsiderate and unprofessional to lump together people with a certain hairstyle for the way they look,” said the man.

He said he’s relying on his faith and trying to stay positive as he awaits a second round of chemotherapy later this month.

“I pray every day that God gives me peace about my diagnosis and He does, so I don’t worry about it. … Stay positive, fight, never give up. That’s the worst thing you can do, ” he said.

The victim of her slur, Kyle Coddington even wrote an article about the issue
