White supremacists have reacted with shock and disbelief as news resurfaced that conservative commentator Ann Coulter is dating Jimmie “J.J.” Walker.
The news was leaked by legendary TV producer Norman Lear, who made Walker a star on the hit ‘70s show “Good Times.”
“I love [Walker]; he’s a wonderful guy, but I’ll tell you something about him that’ll astound you: He dates Ann Coulter,” said Lear in an interview with “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris in Entertainment Weekly.
However, Coulter, who is infamous for making racist comments about Muslims and immigrants, denied the rumors in a Twitter post. Coulter and Walker have frequently been photographed at Hollywood events and both share conservative views.

Posters on the white supremacist hub Stormfront also refused to believe that Coulter, an icon in white supremacist circles, was a willing participant in a relationship with a black man.
“I refuse to believe she went into this willingly,” said a poster called Trumprocks16. “Maybe he’s blackmailing her or using drugs or voodoo. A lot of the blacks know that stuff.”
