NEW YORK, May 13 (UPI) -- Ann Coulter came under fire on social media after she tweeted a version of #BringBackOurGirls with #BringBackOurCountry.

The conservative pundit decided to do her own version of first lady Michelle Obama's photo, which showed a forlorn Obama holding a sign saying #BringBackOurGirls. Obama's photo is part of a global Twitter campaign to bring attention to the 300 kidnapped girls in Nigeria, calling for the Nigerian government to rescue them from the terrorist group Boko Haram.


When Coulter did her impression of the picture with a sign that said #BringBackOurCountry, it was not received well by social media. Twitter users decided to photoshop the sign Coulter was holding to highlight the insensitivity of her actions.
