Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter has shot down rumors that she is dating Good Times actor Jimmie Walker.

The political commentator responded to‘s story about the allegations in a tweet on Wednesday saying the two are just the ‘best of friends.’ ‘Best of friends, love him, no romance,’ the 55-year-old tweeted. The claims were originally made by a source close to Walker, executive producer and developer of Good Times, Norman Lear. Lear, 94, had said the unlikely pair were an item during a recent interview for Entertainment Weekly with Black-ish creator Kanya Barris.

Barris, 42, had been picking Lear’s brain about his experiences in television when the conversation veered toward the ‘phenomenon’ that was Walker’s character, J.J., on Good Times, which aired on CBS. ‘I knew that the role could make him a star,’ Lear said of Walker’s character, who was known for his signature exclamation – ‘Dy-no-mite!'” Then he dropped the real bombshell. The two have been seen together in public in recent years, though Coulter insists they are just friends.
