Ann Coulter Booed During John Stossel Debate After Criticizing Libertarians, Gay Marriage (VIDEO)

Ann Coulter was booed by a crowd of students this week after she made comments criticizing libertarians and gay marriage.

Coulter appeared on Fox Business Network's "Stossel" on Thursday, during which she got into a heated debate with host John Stossel and a roomful of libertarian students.

The show was taped at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C.; around 1,400 students were reportedly in attendance.

The conversation took a bitter turn when Stossel -- an outspoken libertarian himself -- and Coulter began discussing the country's drug war and marijuana legalization. She said libertarians spent way too much time talking about drugs when they should be talking about government regulation and employment policy — and that they were just "sucking up to liberals."

"Libertarians and pot," said Coulter. "This is why people think libertarians are p-ssies." (Mediaite's Andrew Kirell, who was at the debate, wrote that though the word was bleeped out in the broadcast, Coulter definitely dished out that particular insult.)

Stossel went on to ask Coulter about gay marriage. “Why can’t gays get married?” he asked.

“Well, they can,” Coulter said. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.”

At this point, the room erupted in boos.
