Some folks who went for the comedy, not the politics—which is often fair game in comedy, especially during an election year—didn't take too kindly to Amy Schumer's remarks about Donald Trump during a Sunday show at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. Per the Tampa Bay Times, Schumer started getting into gun control and Election 2016, calling Trump at one point an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster." She also said she didn't know how anyone could support Trump and told booing audience members they could leave if they wanted to.

And about 200 of them did. "I don't want to hear that," one man said. "We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics." His wife added: "It's a bit much." The Times notes that no one seemed to mind Schumer's most egregious offense of the night: mistakenly calling the Times the Tampa Bay Tribune while referencing the state's largest paper. Schumer tweeted out a Times review of her show Monday morning, commenting, "All love Tampa." (Schumer is the most dangerous star to search for online.)
