Everyone is talking about the Rob Lowe Roast and notably, how bad Ann Coulter bombed. Rob Lowe’s Comedy Central Roast finally aired Monday night. But audiences saw that not only was it Coulter that got roasted, she humiliated herself onstage as well.
She opened her speech by saying “I want to welcome everybody to the Ann Coulter Roast with Rob Lowe”. Unfortunately, for her, that remained the only funny part of her speech. Coulter whipped out her latest book about Donald Trump shamelessly and the audience immediately booed. She then tried to crack a joke at David Spade’s expense, making a pun out of his name, and the audience moaned in disappointment. Although Lowe is known to publicly support Republicans, even her anti-Hillary Clinton jokes didn’t make a splash. Lowe gave her a standing ovation which seemed to be completely out of pity and no one else participated. At one point she tried to attack SNL’s Pete Davidson, but even that ended badly as his heckling of her was better and drew more laughs from the crowd.
Here are responses on twitter:
The best response came from singer Jewel, who slammed Coulter saying: “I do want to say as a feminist that I can’t support everything that’s been said tonight. But as someone who hates Ann Coulter, I’m delighted.”
