Comedian Booed Off Stage For Criticizing Trump

Wanda Sykes Booed
American actors and comedians better accept the fact that Donald Trump will the 42nd President of the United States or else they will face the prospect of losing any future projects.

This is what unpopular comedian Wanda Sykes learned after she publicly criticize Trump on stage. The crowd immediately reacted by strongly resisting her views with raucous boos. Unprepared for the feedback, Sykes reportedly flipped off and told the audience, "f— all y'all."

During the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser at Boston’s TD Garden arena, Sykes blasted the newly elected president for being a racist, sexist, and a homophobe.

"I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president," said Sykes, according to the Boston Herald. "He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one."

The crowd didn’t react well to Sykes' comments as they booed her set, to which Sykes responded, "F– you, motherf–ers. F– all y'all. F– all y’all." Many outlets reported that Sykes flipped off the audience, although that is not clear in the video.

"The evidence is there," she added. "How can you say he is not racist? ‘Grab them by the p–y’? How can you say he’s not sexist? How can you say he’s not racist? How can you say he’s not homophobic?"

Last month, comedian Amy Schumer made a joke about Trump during her show in Tampa, Florida, which prompted around 200 people to walk out. The Tampa Bay Times claimed Schumer was met with loud booing about halfway through the show when her jokes switched from raunchy subject matter to more topical fare, including gun control and the presidential election.
