The comedian/movie star/social media lightning rod called the Republican nominee an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster," and the Trump supporters so vehemently against political correctness just found it to be "too much."
The Times explains:
She made it clear she doesn’t understand how people can support Trump. At one point she asked for a Trump supporter — preferably one with sleeves, she she told security personnel — to join her up on stage to explain their enthusiasm for Trump. One fellow did, but he said he was voted for Trump mainly because doesn’t trust Clinton. When some audience members booed, the actor and comedian invited them to leave and also asked security to remove anyone booing.
"I don't want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics," former audience member Bryon Nfinger told the paper.
"It's a bit much," his wife, Chrissy Nfinger, added.
People took to Twitter to explain their shock that a comedian was talking about politics.
Hey @amyschumer leave the political stuff out of your comedy shows. We came to laugh not talk politics. We can turn On CNN and NBC for that😊— Luisa Metallo (@LuiGucci) October 17, 2016
At another point in her act, she started talking about sexual assault, which meant a lot to survivors, which many Trump-loving lightweights just couldn't handle.
At @amyschumer's show tonight, she asked the sexually assaulted to stand up together. It was the least alone I've ever felt. Thank you.— Renee (@reneekristine) October 17, 2016
Amy Schumer asked all sexual assault survivors to stand up in audience and people left. Powerful moment & DISGUSTED at the walkouts. pic.twitter.com/Alkl92X2Us— Marshal Knight (@Marshal_Knight) October 17, 2016
Other audience members tweeted their support for a comedian doing what a comedian does.
To all those people who left during the @amyschumer show thank you! If you can't stand to hear other people's opinions we don't want you 😁— Sam Savage (@sammylove0708) October 17, 2016
Looks like these Trump supporters so triggered by opposing views need a safe space.
