On Saturday night, conservative columnist and diehard Donald Trump booster Ann Coulter attended a Comedy Central roast, and things went about as well as you might expect. Coulter was there as one of the assigned roasters for Rob Lowe, joining a gallery of comedians and Hollywood celebrities ready to poke fun at the 52-year-old actor. However, the event’s meanest, most brutal one-liners were directed not at the subject, but at fellow roaster Coulter.
“Ann is one of the most repugnant, hateful, hatchet-face bitches alive,” standup comic Jimmy Carr asserted. “It’s not too late to change, Ann. You could kill yourself!”
“The only person you will ever make happy is the Mexican who digs your grave,” comedian Nikki Glaser said.
“If you are here, Ann, who is scaring the crows away from our crops?” Pete Davidson, a comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member, asked. Davidson also called Coulter a “racist cunt” during the taping.
“I do want to say as a feminist that I can’t support everything that’s been said tonight,” singer-songwriter Jewel said. “But as someone who hates Ann Coulter, I’m delighted.”
A spokeswoman for SNL told The Daily Beast that Davidson is “declining all press requests” at the time. "Everybody has such thin skin," Coulter emailed The Daily Beast, reacting to the jabs. "Bless their hearts, they were trying to be funny."
Coulter does not appear to have a deep or public connection to Lowe, leaving many critics and observers wondering what she was doing on Comedy Central’s roster of roasters. The two of them have, however, tweeted about each other in late 2013.
The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe is set to air on Labor Day.
