A funny thing happened at the Amy Schumer show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida this past weekend — not funny ha-ha like Schumer’s jokes, but an interesting what is happening? kind of funny. When the comedian started talking about current events, such as stricter gun laws and the presidential election, a loud chorus of boos broke out. And when she called Donald Trump, among other things, an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster,” about 200 people stood up and walked out, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

But would it surprise you that the one person completely unfazed by such an act is Schumer herself?

“I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night!” Schumer told EW. “I want to thank the 8,400 people who stayed. We had a great time! We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition.”
