Amy Schumer‘s definitely not a fan of Donald Trump. On Sunday night in Tampa, Florida, she referred to him as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster,” and that apparently didn’t sit well with some fans.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, roughly 200 people walked out of her show at the Amalie Arena, the site of the 2012 Republic National Convention, after Schumer started making comments about Trump. It’s hard to envision the Venn diagram of Trump supporters and Schumer fans, but there was at least person who could be included: Schumer brought him up on stage to explain why he’s voting for Trump. (He doesn’t trust Hillary Clinton.)
One person in attendance, Ashley Payne, posted a 15-minute clip of the segment.
After speaking with the supporter, Schumer said it’s been a “triggering” week, perhaps referencing all the allegations against Trump, and asked anyone who’s been sexually assaulted to stand up. She then spoke about gun control and last summer’s shooting during a screening of Trainwreck. Much of the criticism seemed to come from set getting too “political,” though Schumer was out getting people registered to vote before the show.
Very happy to hear that Trump supporters in Tampa walked out on “Amy Schumer”. They paid to hear comedy, not a political speech.

But, as Payne’s video relates, many people stayed and cheered.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Schumer is the first female comic to ever headline the Amalie Arena. She told Entertainment Weekly on Monday: “I want to thank the 8,400 people who stayed. We had a great time! We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition.”
