The cancer survivor at the center of a late-night comedian's joke about Nazi-style haircuts at the Conservative Political Action Conference is handling the fallout with style. In a segment about the Conservative Political Action Conference, Kyle Coddington was picked out due to his haircut. The piece was narrated by Full Frontal
producer Mike Rubens. He referred to Coddington's haircut as "Nazi hair."
The day after the piece went out, TBS issued a statement saying they had only learned of Coddington's fight against cancer after the segment aired.
In an appearance on Fox and Friends on March 10, Coddington said that he was "thankful" for Bee's donation of $1,000 to his Go Fund Me page. Though he was unimpressed with Bee's apology saying, "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."
He spoke about his prognosis as he battles stage 4 glioblastoma, "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."
Following his appearance on Fox News, Coddington's Go Fund Me page has raised nearly $80,000.
