Amy Schumer is addressing the show attendees she angered after speaking out against Donald Trump during her Tampa, Florida performance on Sunday.
The comedian read out an open letter out to her fans at her show in New York City on Tuesday night that garnered a slightly better reaction. “I’ve written an open letter to Tampa and I’d like to read it tonight,” she began the letter. “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?”
The Madison Square Garden audience laughed as she continued to poke fun at her Florida show audience that couldn’t handle Schumer’s political 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!”
She continued, “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 the show, Schumer took aim at her Florida audience on Instagram. “@rachelfeinstein_ @marknormand and I are putting on a squeaky clean show #msg #tampaapologytour,” she captioned a pre-show photo.
