She’s not ready to make nice.
On Sunday, roughly 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer‘s show at Tampa’s Amalie Arena, after the comedian started doing some material about “orange monster” Donald Trump, sexual assault, and gun control.
She’d hinted on Instagram that her Tuesday night show at Madison Square Garden would be a “Tampa apology tour,” and indeed, she read a letter to the people of Tampa saying she was sorry but also not sorry:
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?
After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy—both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people who’ve been tricked into it!
And Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexually assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexually assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!
There were also trigger warnings.

It’s not clear if doing a human pyramid with Madonna was part of the apology tour.
