Ann Coulter Considered ‘Toxic’ After Comment on Radiation

Liberal radio and television host Ed Schultz called lawyer and conservative political commentator Ann Coulter "toxic" after her comments on the health effects of radiation. Coulter caused a huge controversy after writing an article regarding the nuclear crisis in Japan that included the statement "at some level - much higher that the minimums set by the U. S. government - radiation is good for you". Schultz said the comment would be laughed at if it weren't in regards to such a serious incident.

Shultz admitted that her claim was plausible, but went on to quote a number of different research studies that claimed more research needed to be done in the area before a definite conclusion on the topic could be made. He also cited the nuclear bombings in Nagasaki and Hiroshima in 1945 as proof that radiation can in fact kill people.

Other people also made foot-in-mouth comments about the nuclear crisis in Japan. Kudlow apologized after his statement that he was grateful the human toll in Japan was larger than the economic toll.

Gilbert Gottfried, a comedian, was fired after making a mockery of the Japanese people, saying they were advanced because the beach came to them instead of them going to the beach. Rapper 50 Cent posted a comment on Twitter that said, "Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing. Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoes from LA, Hawaii and Japan".
