Ann Coulter is at it again. During her recent appearance on ‘The View,’ the conservative pundit, unsurprisingly, clashed with all of the ladies but specifically, she and host Raven Symone got into it big time over immigration and name calling– and it got way heated. Watch!
When Ann Coulter, 53, dropped by The View on Oct. 16 to promote her new book Adios America, it literally took less than one minute for the controversial commentator (who may or may not be made of snakes) to start sparring with the talk show’s panel of women. However, when Raven Symone, 29, asked the author why she insists on being so nasty, specifically about immigrants, well, shots were fired. Check out a clip to see the two women go the heck at it.
“I have a question for you,” Raven says, trying to get Ann’s attention. “My mom taught me when I was younger, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all,” Raven says with a fire in her voice that shows, already, she is pissed. Immediately, the crowd erupted into cheers, but Raven pressed on.
“Why do you think that it’s important to mudsling and have these words that obviously touch the hearts and souls of so many people of America being said, when we’re taught something different as a child?” Raven prods Ann.
Now, you may recall that Raven got into a little hot water herself on the show’s Oct. 8 episode, when the subject of supposedly “ghetto names” were brought up and Raven said, “I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea.” It was cringe-worthy for sure, however, shortly after making the comments, Raven apologized, saying, “My comment was in poor taste. My lack of empathy towards name discrimination was uncalled for.”
Ann, though, decided to use Raven’s faux pas against her, contrasting it with her own beliefs on immigration. “Well I’m at least talking about policy, you have a problem with what peoples’ name should be!” Ann said. “Watermelondrea, I mean, you’ll insult people for their names, I’m talking about a government policy” she added as a closeup on Raven showed what could only be described as venomous hatred pumping through her veins.
Did Ann have a right to call Raven out? Whose opinions do you more closely agree with?
