Amy Schumer faced a walkout by an estimated 200 of the approximately 8,600 to 10,000 audience members at her Tampa, Florida, concert Sunday night when part of her comedy set turned to political humor lambasting Donald Trump.
As the show progressed through topics from sex to dating, Schumer segued into a riff based on the recently unearthed 2005 recording of Republican presidential nominee Trump conversing with “Access Hollywood” correspondent Billy Bush about grabbing women inappropriately and nonconsensually, generally considered a form of sexual assault but which Trump downplayed as “locker room talk.”
“You know what I love?” Schumer asked. “A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my [expletive],” she said, paraphrasing Trump’s words.
Schumer eventually referred to Trump as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster”; Smith estimated that “about 200 people walked out” then. Several fans expressed their displeasure on social media, with one person under the handle MommaPayne posting a YouTube video showing Schumer being booed.
