A comedy roast where the intended target was Rob Lowe turned into a feeding frenzy aimed at conservative commentator Ann Coulter. Mediaite reports that Coulter, who was there to help roast Lowe for a Comedy Central program, wound up as the focus of some of the night’s most stinging remarks.
The report lists a number of examples, a few of which follow:
Jeffrey Ross: “How do I roast someone from hell? Ann, you are the only woman ever to sexually harass Roger Ailes.”
Peyton Manning: “I’m not the only athlete up here. As you know earlier this year, Ann Coulter won the Kentucky Derby.”
Nikki Glaser: “The only person you will ever make happy is the Mexican who digs your grave.”
Jewel: “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.”
The special is scheduled to be televised on Comedy Central on Labor Day.
