Needless to say, we’ve reached a point in this “election” where the only way we can keep from completely losing our minds is through comedy. When something really sucks there is no better way to cope than with a good laugh.
That being said, there’s definitely a line and not everyone knows where to stop. One of our favorite comedic gals, Amy Schumer learned her lesson the hard way this weekend when her Trump-bashing took a turn for the worse.
Around 200 people left Amy Schumer’s standup show in Florida when she started slamming Donald Trump.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the comedian/movie star turned away hundreds of show attendees after “telling it like it is” about Donald Trump. Schumer called the Republican nominee an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster.” While this may be true, Trump supporters were not eager to hear what else Schumer had to say.
The Times explained:
She made it clear she doesn’t understand how people can support Trump. At one point, she asked for a Trump supporter — preferably one with sleeves, she told security personnel — to join her up on stage to explain their enthusiasm for Trump. One fellow did, but he said he was voting for Trump mainly because he doesn’t trust Clinton. When some audience members booed, the actor/comedian invited them to leave and also asked security to remove anyone booing.
Former audience member Bryon Nfinger also told the paper, “I don’t want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics.”
“It’s a bit much,” his wife, Chrissy Nfinger, added.
Some viewers shared their disapproval of Schumer’s political comedy via Twitter.
While other followers voiced their support for Schumer after she began talking about sexual assault, particularly the survivors.
Tbh, we can’t really blame Schumer for speaking her mind. That’s what she’s known for after all.
