Conservative pundit Ann Coulter earned herself a bit of street cred on Friday, after she checked Raven-Symoné for dissing ethnic names.
During a segment on the 2016 presidential election, Symoné attempted to call Coulter out for her offensive comments about undocumented immigrants, and it completely backfired.
“I have a question,” Symoné said. “My mom taught me when I was young that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. And 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. Could you explain that to me and why you think your success is based off of that?”
If some of Symoné’s past comments are any indication, it doesn’t sound like she listened to her mother very much either. Still, that didn’t stop her from trying to come for Coulter, who wasted no time ethering Symoné for her ironic comments.
“I’m at least talking about policy. You have a position on what people’s names should be. Watermelondrea…you’ll insult people for their names. I’m talking about a government policy that affects all Americans and immigrants and the people living here and is harming our country. So you don’t follow it.”
Despite dealing Symoné a much-needed reality check, Coulter continues to remain quite terrible.
In addition to telling the View co-hosts how much she loves Donald Trump and continuing to spout her anti-immigrant rhetoric, when asked if she was a Native American, given her harsh views on immigration, Coulter said she was a “settler, not an immigrant.”
So…that’s what we’re calling it now? Ok, girl.
Listen, while folks are going crazy and laughing at Symoné’s smackdown, let’s not forget that Coulter has said some pretty heinous things Black folks, [email protected], and just about everyone who doesn’t subscribe to her narrow-minded views.
It says everything about how low Raven-Symoné has fallen in in our estimation that we’re celebrating her getting burned by Ann Coulter.

Why's everybody giving Ann Coulter props just because she took an easy shot that hit? She's STILL ANN COULTER?
