Ann Coulter blames Comedy Central for making her look unfunny: ‘You can do a lot in film editing’
Conservative author Ann Coulter argued on Tuesday that Comedy Central altered her comedy set at a roast of Rob Lowe to make it look much worse, the Huffington Post reported.
“I know I got laughs when I was there,” Coulter told TMZ Live hosts Harvey Levin and Charles Latibeaudiere.
“I watched some of it — particularly when you were up there,” Latibeaudiere replied. “There were very few laughs. Are you saying there were more laughs and that they cut those out?”
“I suspect as much,” she said. “They didn’t seem to be wanting to do me any favors, and you can do a lot in film editing. I wish they had just run the whole roast straight without their editing.”
Coulter was heckled throughout her appearance at the event, and was also roasted by many of the guests as well as musical guest Jewel, who said, “As a feminist that I can’t support everything that’s been said tonight. But as someone who hates Ann Coulter, I’m delighted.”
But Coulter insisted that the network was behind her dismal showing.
“It’s very easy to cut jokes or laughs out, you can make anyone look like they’re playing to a dead audience,” she said.
She also confirmed that she rejected the event writers’ material for jokes she wrote with friends.
“They were too blue and too mean,” she said of the original material.
