TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Amy Schumer’s rant against Donald Trump apparently turned off some fans at her show in Tampa, Florida.

The comedian slammed the Republican presidential nominee and brought a fan who supported him onstage to question him about his decision. She responded to people booing in the audience by telling them to leave if they didn’t like her opinions. When some continued to boo, Schumer asked security to escort them out.

Schumer went on to discuss her strong support for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and for gun control.

A reporter for the Tampa Bay Times who attended the show counted roughly about 200 people walking out over the comments.

According to tampabay.com, “About 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer’s comedy show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Sunday when she mocked Donald Trump as, among other things, an ‘orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster.'”

Schumer responded to the controversy on Twitter on Monday with a note , “All love Tampa.”
