TBS Taking Heat for Broadcast Mocking Cancer Patient on Full Frontal With Samantha Bee


Comedian Samantha Bee is apologizing after mocking Kyle Coddingtons haircut calling it “Nazi hair” while attending CPAC. It turns out the young man she roasted suffers from glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. Bee thought he was making a political statement with his hair but, in actuality, it is falling out due to radiation treatment. Bee released an apology that many are blasting, calling it insincere. Coddingtons GoFundMe page has raised $82,000 in the last 12 hours.

The Samantha Bee show made a $1,000 donation to the GoFundMe Page for Kyle Coddington.

Calls for Boycott of the Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal and TBS on the Official Facebook Page for TBS

Done with TBS, Sammantha Bee (sic) is the last straw, all you guys have is reruns, movies I’ve seen three dozen times and whoever told you any of those new comedies were even remotely funny or entertaing (sic) lied to you, You guys had good run for a while.

— Eric Thompson to TBS Network

Could TBS or Samantha Bee please explain how a haircut is a Nazi identification? So if you have pride and like a short hair cut your a Nazi? You hide under the banner of humor, and live out stereotyping and labeling.. Discussing is the only non-Vulgar word I feel I can use here… Your attack on a young man battling cancer based on a hairstyle? Sick!
— Spencer Schirs to TBS Network

Only tbs could find something political and amusing about brain cancer. Such class.

— Gary T Hanson to TBS Network

I loved TBS, emphasis on the “…ed”. Samantha Bee….nope and nope. Insulting cancer patients with “nazi” haircuts. Sorry TBS, I’m tuning you out. Calling my cable provider to eliminate your channel from my package. Airing HATE filled shows is something we all can do without. My tv will NEVER be on your channel again, good riddance. Bye TBS.

Mr. Turner, I have been a fan of your networks for decades. Night Tracks changed my life. I saw Vampire Hunter D in ’91 at 2 in the morning. Awesome. I enjoy most of your programming. You have picked winners consistently for as long as I can remember. However, the decision to put Samantha Bee in a primetime slot to espouse her anti American, Nazi talk is overwhelming. My go to late night used to be Conan, but I’m not going to indulge your advertisers until you get rid of her. Maybe a spot on Global at 12 am would fit better? Montana boy out… Mike drop

— ‎Wade A. Jacobson to TBS Network

Since when is cancer a joke? Just remember TBS, by letting her continue you are endorsing her behavior as acceptable…

Samantha Bee sucks. I’ll watch TBS after she’s gone.

Fire Samantha Bee NOW!!!

— Jeremy Caddell to TBS Network

#firesamanthabee. She’s poor excuse for a comedian with hateful comments about a stage 4 cancer patient!

— Connie Schultejans‎ to TBS Network

Reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond over Samantha Bee

— Wil EC‎ to TBS Network

Samantha Bee couldn’t care less about that young man having stage 4 brain cancer. Fire that piece of trash, TBS!

— Craig Campbell‎ to TBS Network

I will NEVER watch TBS or TNT or any other station you are offiliated with until you get rid of that piece of trash called Samantha Bee! I take this very personally seeing is that my soon to be 13yr old son went through 4 long excruciating years of cancer treatment and is almost 5 years cancer free now thank GOD, so I know EXACTLY how this family feels. Samantha Bee is a loser and NOT funny at all and doesn’t deserve to keep her show after her dumb witch self shown her true colors. And when you have to make fun of someone who has cancer to get a laugh then your less than stellar career’s been over! #BoycottTBS #BoycottSamanthaBee #SmackALib

— Angela Christine Premo-Maynard‎ to TBS Network

Shut down Samantha Bee for he hateful comment on that young man’s hair cut with stage 4 cancer. Her apologies are not accepted. Boycott her show!

Darrell Marino‎ to TBS Network

I will be watching for a single day to note all of your advertisers so that I can encourage a boycotting of them as long as they are advertising on a station that encourages bigotry and hatred.
