Amy Schumer Mocks Tampa Crowd: Read Her Open Letter!

Okay, we admit it: we were wrong about Amy Schumer.

Earlier this week, the comedian put on a show in Tampa, stopping at one point to invite a Donald Trump supporter on stage.

Schumer wanted to hear some kind of reasonable and rational basis for why anyone would actually vote Donald Trump for President.

So she asked a man for his opinion… she listed while he basically said he was voting against Hillary Clinton more than for Donald Trump… and then she thanked him and asked him to sit back down.

And then Schumer laid into Trump, referring to him as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”

But this was said to an audience in Florida, a state Trump might actually win. (Although a collection of polls currently has Clinton winning Florida by 3.6 points at the moment.)

As a result, many attendees were turned off by Schumer’s Trump slamming

They booed and they actually got up to walk out.

See for yourself:

So… how were we wrong about Schumer?

She issued a brief response to these displeased fans yesterday, telling Entertainment Weekly:

“I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night!

“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.”

We took these words as meaning that Schumer did not give a you-know-what about those who left her set early.

But we were mistaken. She clearly has a few f-cks to give about them.

During her stand-up show in New York City last night, Schumer read an open letter to critics in Tampa (and around the country, really).

It started as follows:

“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?”

As the audience began laughing, Schumer continued:

“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 then Schumer concluded:

“And Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that.

“I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!”

Prior to this show, Schumer had taken to to Instagram, claiming that she would put on a “squeaky clean” performance in the aftermath of Florida’s performance.

She included the hashtag “#tampaapologytour” with this message.

Maybe Schumer has a different definition of “apology” than most people.

Or maybe she was preparing folks for the hilarious open letter to come.

In the video above, Schumer asks the Donald Trump supporter the following question:

“Do you get worried at all with how impulsive he is, that he gets so fired up from Saturday Night Live doing a skit on him? Do you worry he’ll be impulsive and get us in a lot of f-cking trouble we can’t get out of?”

This led her down the aforementioned, unpopular path.

But it seems like a fair question to pose, does it not?

Amy Schumer Slams Trump Supporters, Gets Heckled in Tampa

Amy Schumer and Donald Trump are too very divisive figures.

But while the former is a comedian who occasionally rubs people the wrong way with her political material, the other is an unhinged Cheeto-man who wants the nuke codes so that he can tease Putin with a guessing game next time they Skype.

Needless to say, they don’t represent the same level of threat to our way of life, which may be why Schumer felt compelled to go in on Trump during a recent standup performance in Tampa:

Now, you’ve ever studied an electoral map, you know that Florida is a true toss-up state, with a population divided between staunchly conservative bath salt addicts and more left-leaning bath salt addicts.

(And there’s the occasional flakka aficionado, who we assume will be voting for Gary Johnson.)

Anyway, it’s a risky state in which to voice a political opinion, but that didn’t stop Schumer from engaging with Trump supporters during her gig last night.

As you can see in the clip above, it went about as well as expected, which is to say, very, very poorly.

Schumer invited a Trump supporter on stage last night to ask what it is the guy sees in the Donald.

When the guy asnwered that he’s not voting for Trump but “voting against Hillary,” an annoyed Schumer dismissed him.

“I just wanted to know why one guy, who doesn’t seem like a psychopath, would want to vote for that orange, sexual-assaulting, fake college starting…” Schumer said.

Her comments were met with a chorus of mixed boos and applause.

There’s a pause in the recording, during which time things presumably took a turn for the worse, and Schumer can be heard telling the crowd:

“From now on, if you yell out, you’re gonna get thrown out. Everybody point to the people booing.”

Given the level of violence at recent Trump rallies, it’s actually surprising things didn’t get even uglier.

Depending on what part of the country you live in, it can be easy to forget the nation is still this divided with regard to who it wants calling the shots at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Even so, we’re a bit surprised this all went down at an Amy Schumer show.

Was a local radio station giving away free passes or something?

Did some Tampa residents really think that at the end of a week in which Trump was accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen women, Shumer was gonna take the stage and be like, “Ya know, I’m still undecided…”

We’re guessing a lot of season ticket holders for that venue were in the house last night.
