Comedian Amy Schumer on Tuesday mocked the fans who walked out of her show in Tampa, Fla., last weekend.
“I’ve written an open letter to Tampa, and I’d like to read it tonight,” she said during her Tuesday show in New York City.
“Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now. How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?"
She promised that after the show, "I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy, both the rich, entitled people who are going to vote for him, and the very poor people who get tricked into it."
“And Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster,” Schumer said to audience laughter and applause, adding, "I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”
About 200 people walked out of Schumer's show on Sunday after the comedian mocked the Republican nominee and invited a Trump supporter on stage.
After Schumer began to get booed, she asked those who were unhappy with her show to leave and threatened to have them removed by security if they made any noise.
“Of course, we’re in Florida, you’re going to boo,” the comedian said during her show. “I know you’re here to laugh, but you choose how you’re going to live your life, and it’s just too important.”
