"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" apologized after learning a person the late-night show mocked for having "Nazi hair" in fact had brain cancer. 

The left-leaning raw comedy show ran a segment Wednesday on the Conservative Political Action Conference and poked fun at attendees. Those mocked included Kyle Coddington.

But the joke drew the ire from several, including family members of Coddington and resulted in tweets such as this.

 

Full Frontal's Twitter account issued an apology while the show pulled the segment. The show also donated $1,000 to Coddington's GoFundMe campaign.

 

Bee also issued an apology from her Twitter account.
