Wanda Sykes performed at 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser in Boston, MA, when she decided to go off on President-elect Donald Trump:
“I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president,” said Sykes during her set, a video of which is below. “He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one.”
Within a matter of seconds, the crowd and Sykes turned on each other. “F— you, motherf—ers,” Sykes said as the crowd’s boos intensified. “F— all y’all. F— all y’all.”
The audience responded with jeers and boos, which led Sykes to flip them off.
She continued to bash Trump even after everyone jeered her:
“I couldn’t believe that Donald Trump won,” she said. “I couldn’t believe that we elected an orangutan to front the country. This is ridiculous.
“Everybody was just saying, ‘Oh, well, he just has to learn how to be more presidential,’” Sykes added. “‘He just has to learn how to control his temper. He has to learn how to be more mild-mannered.’
“I have a seven-year-old boy, those are the things I’m teaching him. Donald Trump is 70. That motherf—- isn’t learning s—. That’s just who he is. He’s the crazy man.”
Denis Leary took the stage to introduce the next performer and told the audience that Sykes “deserved the audience’s respect.”
Comic Nick DiPaolo performed next, but his routine also received a lot of jeers and boos since he inserted jokes with anti-Semitic references and raping women.
Leary released this statement afterwards:
“For 22 years, we have never censored any performer at Comics Come Home,” Leary said in the statement. “ . . . This has resulted in the longest running stand up charity event in America. Even this past weekend, 6 of the 8 comics received big laughs and rapturous applause.
He added, “As I say each time we do this concert, the Boston audiences are the best in the country and their support of The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care has been absolutely exceptional. We look forward to Comics Come Home 23 next November.”
Cam Neely, who played for the Boston Bruins, runs the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care and said the event “has raised more than $10 million in cancer research, treatments, and services.”
In October, Amy Schumer received the same treatment after she kept insulting Donald Trump and those who support him. She even brought up a Trump supporter and put him in the spotlight, forcing him to tell all these people why he chose the GOP candidate.
People booed and stormed out of the show.
Countless celebrities spoke out against Trump and backed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. Many of them swore they’d move to Canada if Trump won, but now they all claim it was a joke.DONATE
