In recent days, many have reacted with disgust and anger over a video showing white supremacists gathered and in a celebratory mood over Donald Trump's presidential win.

Ann Coulter inserted herself into the discussion on Monday night, tweeting, "Total # of deaths connected to American Nazi Party in last quarter century: ZERO; Total # of deaths connected to Al Sharpton: 9 I know of."

Droves have reacted to her words with disgust and anger as well.

Among them was Perez Hilton who wrote on Twitter, "Ann Coulter is now a Nazi sympathizer? Excuse me while I grab a bucket of water and hunt her down!"
