"We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece," the show tweeted Thursday morning.

On Wednesday's Full Frontal, a segment on the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) labeled a variety of attendees with partially shaved heads as having "Nazi hair." One of the men depicted in the segment is undergoing treatment for brain cancer, and his sister called out Samantha Bee's show on Twitter.

"We deeply apologize for offending @_that_kyle in our CPAC segment," tweeted the Full Frontal account. "We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece."

The video of the CPAC segment has been taken down from YouTube. Correspondent Michael Rubens narrated that part of the segment, which featured images of attendees with shaved haircuts, and said, "This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair" and called the CPAC "decidedly Trump country."
