Roughly 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer's show in Tampa, Florida, on his October 16 show when she called Donald Trump an 'orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster', according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Accordingly, Schumer was met with loud booing in the middle of her show when her jokes suddenly switched from crude topics to more current matters. These include gun control and the upcoming presidential election.

During her show, the comic, booed by some in Tampa Bay crowd of about 10,000, at one point invited a self-identified Trump supporter onstage to explain why he supported the GOP candidate, according to New York Daily News

The audience member answered that he was voting for Trump mainly because he didn't trust his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

When booing flared up, the comedian requested anyone booing to leave with the help of security, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Schumer instructed security to escort out the 'boo-ers', and told some cynics to take a hike. Consequently, many were obliged.

"Of course, we're in Florida, you're going to boo," she said.

"I know you're here to laugh, but you choose how you're going to live your life, and it's just too important."

"Just so you know, from now on, if you yell out, you're gonna get thrown out," Schumer added.

Schumer, a sexual assault victim herself, as recounted in her book, "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo," asked victims of sexual assault to stand, which many did.

Accordingly, Trump has been facing sexual assault allegations from several accusers since a leaked "Access Hollywood" tape from 2005 showed him bragging about groping women because of his celebrity status. Trump has denied all allegations.

Audience members who were unhappy with the incident also vented their grievances on Twitter. They bashed and criticized Schumer, a comedian known for her staunch gun-control advocacy and Hillary Clinton support, for bringing politics into the equation.
