Conservative pundit Ann Coulter shut Raven-Symoné down when challenged on her lack of respect towards immigrants responding, “I mean, you’ll insult people for their names. I’m talking about a government policy.”
Coulter, appearing on Friday’s episode of the “The View”, engaged in a lively discussion with the panel about immigration. Raven asked Coulter, “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 in America being said when we were taught something different as a child? Can you explain that to me and can you explain why your success is based off of that?”
Coulter responded, “Well, I’m at least talking about policy. You have a position on what people’s names should be, Watermelondrea. I mean, 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 it’s harming our country.”
Raven did not respond for the rest of the segment.
Coulter was referring to Raven-Symoné’s recent remark about how she wouldn’t hire someone with a “ghetto name” like “Watermelondrea.”
Social media was quick to jump on the testy exchange:
Ann Coulter telling Raven-Symone she’s wrong is like Al-Queda telling ISIS “Whoa, too far bro.”

Congrats to Raven for proving that being a tap dancing new nigga won’t end white supremacy, though. Salute.
