200 fans walk out of comedy show after Amy Schumer disses Trump
Around 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer’s comedy show in Tampa after the comedian mocked Donald Trump during her performance.
TAMPA, FLORIDA — Comedian Amy Schumer successfully angered more than 200 people, after she mocked Donald Trump at her Tampa comedy show.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Schumer’s performance at the Amalie Arena on Sunday started out with her standard lineup of raunchy sex stories about herself.
But talk turned political when the comic pulled the Trump card, referencing the Republican candidate’s recent remark about grabbing women’s privates.
She invited a Trump supporter on stage to defend his choice. The man explained that he was voting Trump because didn’t trust Hillary. That didn’t sit well with Schumer, and the man was promptly dismissed.
A number of audience members booed, and around 200 walked out as Schumer referred to Donald as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster” who “wanted to finger his daughter.”
She directed security to chuck out any hecklers and proceeded to fangirl over Hillary to the rest of the 8,400 people in the audience.
A bunch of netizens took to social media to give Schumer flak about mocking Trump, but the comedian seemed unfazed. She’s performing at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, according to the New York Times, where she may or may not dole out more anti-Trump Schumerisms.
