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.

Republican Marsha Blackburn shuts down applause as 9/11 bill vote unfolds in the Senate
The funding for 9/11 first responders has officially passed the Senate after public outcry and significant lobbying by firefighters, police and others who worked after the Twin Tower attacks. But it was the emotional testimony from comedian Jon Stewart that drew much-needed publicity to the cause.
But as the bill was coming up for a vote, with the assurance it would pass, the gallery erupted with applause, with some senators joining in. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) shut it down quickly.
"Expression of approval is not permitted in the gallery," Blackburn shouted, while banging her gavel. She proceeded to bang her gavel at least 25 times more and repeated again that any expression of approval was not permitted.
GUILTY: Jury rules Michael Flynn’s former business partner is guilty of lobbying for Turkey
Michael Flynn's former business partner Bijan Kian was found guilty by a jury for illegally lobbying for a foreign country.
The information was uncovered as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and as the Justice Department's crackdown on illegal foreign lobbying, CNN explained.
Flynn has had a difficult go in his court case, but information Flynn gave was helpful, according to the DOJ.
Kian is an Iranian-American businessman who was charged with conspiring to hide his lobbying work for Turkey without registering as a foreign agent for the Turkish government.
