Amy Schumer Gets Political - People Walk Out After She Makes One Joke

It seems like nearly every time somebody famous is in front of a microphone these days, they view it as open season to espouse their political viewpoints. While some commentary is well-reasoned and certainly worthy of being read and heard, oftentimes it crosses the line into bashing an opposing viewpoint to get their own points across.

As the Daily Mail points out, that’s what happened at a recent Amy Schumer performance in Tampa, Florida. Republican nominee Donald Trump was clearly in her crosshairs, and she took full aim at him. Among the assorted gems she dropped was that he’s an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake college-starting monster.”

That’s certainly one way to describe him, but a segment of Trump supporters in the audience didn’t take too kindly to her bashing of the candidate, and they promptly got up and left. For those that feel they were being far too sensitive, a little perspective is in order.

As a general rule of thumb, people attend events such as Schumer’s to escape from their troubles for a little while and be entertained. The two candidates are certainly fair game as they both provide plenty of ammunition for a gifted comedian such as Schumer to poke fun at, but it’s simply unnecessary to cross the line into punditry and fling insults at supporters of the other side.

Perhaps the greatest lesson from the current presidential election cycle is that there’s rampant disagreement about the correct viewpoint, but it’s ok to disagree - and even encouraged - but it doesn’t have to degenerate into hateful speech.
