about a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August.
She later tweeted out that she was “sorry” for her comment, but did not apologize for her words.
Coulter told the Washington Post that she had made the racist remark after reading an article about the white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville.
Coulter’s post on her website on Monday also said that she regretted using the term “n*****r”.
Coulter was born in New York City and moved to New York in the early 1980s.
She said she grew up in a family of “white trash” in suburban Philadelphia and said she has “never been one to apologise for what I think”.
She told the Post that her father is “the best example I’ve ever had”.
She said that although she was once “bored and lonely” at home, she found a “great community of people” in New Jersey.
“I’m the most optimistic person I know,” Coulter said.
“When I was in high school, I was so angry and frustrated and I was always getting into fights with other kids.
I thought I was a bad person.”
Coulter, who has been the president of the American Conservative Union since 2013, has also appeared on the Fox News Channel.
She has defended President Donald J. Trump on the campaign trail.
The American conservative group is one of several groups that has been accused of using racial slurs and bigotry against African- Americans, Latinos and women.
Earlier this month, the American Family Association, a conservative organization that has promoted the debunked theory that homosexuality is a choice and encourages members to “expose” people to AIDS, published an article claiming that “black men” are “slaving for women”.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organisation, also released an investigation into The AmericanConservative and found that it promotes white supremacist ideology.
The SPLC found that The American conservatives promotes “hate speech and racism”.
A spokeswoman for The American conservatism told the New York Times that Coulter “apologized for her tweet.”
“Ann Coulter was deeply sorry for her offensive tweet that was posted earlier today,” the spokeswoman said.
