The right-leaning correspondent attempted to take a conservative stand with the help of a hashtag on Twitter. Little did she know she was setting herself up for mockery.
Ann Coulter has done quite well for herself as a conservative commentator around the many news networks in this country. But considering her latest social media blunder, she may want to stick to the news and lay off the social media quips.
Coulter became the target of some serious ridicule when she responded to a social media campaign headed by Michelle Obama with a picture of her holding a piece of paper that read #BringBackOurCountry. The original campaign called for the return of nearly 300 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls via the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, a prominent story that has received a great deal of media attention.
Coulter’s insensitive response caught the attention of some Twitter vigilantes and an image began circling of Ann Coulter with a blank piece of paper, urging people to mock the right-wing correspondent in the funniest way possible. And Twitter did not disappoint. In a few short minutes, a number of hilarious images were popping up of Coulter complimenting Michael Sam’s relationship or inviting the country to #BringBack3DDoritoes.
Because most people are so skilled at the art of meme-making nowadays, this image continued to circle around the Internet. Some images showed Coulter holding pictures of animals playing instruments (or worse) but many took the opportunity to make her say out of character things. Here are some of the other gems: #BringBackMySoul, Please Pay Attention to Me, #BringBackTraditionalWhiteAmerica, and even “I’m a miserable person who peddles hate to make money off dumb Republicans.” All right, that last one got a little dark.
But the mockery at Coulter’s expense seemed to mostly be lighthearted. The Twitter Universe merely seemed like they wanted to point out that not everything has to be a stand.
