She didn't mince words. 

Amy Schumer’s Florida fans weren’t too happy with the comedian’s takedown of Donald Trump on Sunday night. 

According to the Tampa Bay Times, an estimated 200 people walked out of Schumer’s Tampa show when she took down the Republican presidential nominee, calling him an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” 

“You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my p***y,” the comedian said via the Times, before inviting a fan up onstage to talk about why he supported the GOP candidate. 

At this point, fans began to boo and walk out of the arena, according to the Times. Some tweeted their displeasure at the comedian for making the night too political, while others said they were embarrassed about the walkout:

The comedian also spoke about the sexual assault allegations against Trump and called the GOP candidate’s response to his multiple allegations “really triggering.” (Schumer recently revealed that she had a non-consensual sexual experience as a teen.)

She asked audience members who were victims of sexual assault to stand up, which again drew mixed reactions from the crowd: 

Schumer has made no secret of her support for Hillary Clinton over the past few months and even registered people to vote before her Sunday show.

Sounds like those unhappy fans should’ve done their research before attending Schumer’s show.


Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
