200 Walkout of Amy Schumer Comedy Show in Tampa
Written by Joshua Silver
Warning: political talk ahead!!! With that out of the way, let’s talk about comedy and politics.
While performing in Tampa Florida Amy Schumer got on the topic of Donald Trump. Apparently, some members of the audience could only take so much of the comedian’s jokes. Once Schumer had enough she called for security to remove people and invited people to leave. At that point people left the venue without incident.
While I am a firm believer that life is too serious and you have to have a sense of humor, I have to wonder why firm Trump supporters would attend an Amy Schumer show? It isn’t like any anti-Trump thing she may say should come as a surprise: she is vocal Clinton supporter.
Some of the people that walked out of the show went to Twitter to complain. One of the people posted “If you were half the woman you portray, you’d give me a refund of my $100 after political ploy tonight! You’re a disgraceful!”. This Twitter user MAY have a little bit of a point, as Schumer wasn’t really cracking jokes, she was politicking.
While having a sense of humor about politics is a good thing the only question I have is when will Schumer get to the Hillary jokes?
