Amy Schumer reads apology letter to Tampa Trump supporters


Comedian, writer, and actress Amy Schumer read an apology letter to the Donald Trump supporters who walked out on her during a recent show in Tampa, Florida.

During her gig Sunday in Tampa, Schumer brought a man voting for Trump up on stage. “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****ng trouble we can’t get out of,” she asked.

Some in the audience started booing and she told security to kick out anyone making noise during the rest of her set adding, “Of course, we’re in Florida, you’re going to boo. I know you’re here to laugh, but you choose how you’re going to live your life, and it’s just too important.”

During her show Tuesday night at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Schumer read out loud a “sorry but not sorry” letter she wrote to the people offended by her comments:

“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? 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 Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster… I shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!”


Amy Schumer has been an open supporter of Trump’s democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
