Hundreds of people walked out of Amy Schumer's comedy show when it got political



Comedienne Amy Schumer faced boos and a mass exodus during her show in Tampa, Florida, over the weekend. 

An estimated 200 people left the show at the Amalie Arena because they didn't find the comedienne's jokes about Donald Trump very funny. 

The Tampa Bay Times reported that people began leaving when Schumer called Trump an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster."

The reactions from fans are somewhat surprising seeing as Schumer has been very vocal about the presidential election and was an early Hillary Clinton supporter.  

She's been particularly vocal about her position on gun control, calling for tougher regulations. In the back of her new book, she even tells readers how they can take action on the issue, according to CBS News

But, all that aside, much of the Tampa audience was offended and turned to social media to voice their disappointment. 

Thousands of fans, however, stayed and actually praised Schumer for getting political. 

 The people who ditched the show didn't seem to phase Schumer. She tweeted, "All love Tampa." 

In a statement to Vanity Fair, Schumer wrote: "I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night! I want to thank the 8400 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."
