Coulter on Sunday published a tweet with a picture of herself mimicking Michelle Obama's #BringBackOurGirls photo but with her own hashtag iteration, #BringBackOurCountry. Coulter's attempt to hijack the hashtag completely backfired, as people subsequently tweeted the image with a photoshopped signs making fun of Coulter.

Since the first lady joined the social media campaign, conservatives have bashed #BringBackOurGirls and Twitter activism in general. Rush Limbaugh called use of the hashtag "phony" and "pathetic," and George Will called the campaign an "exercise in self-esteem."
