Wanda Sykes left the stage angered Saturday night after being booed for joking about President Elect Donald Trump.
Sykes made it through five minutes of her gig at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraising event in Boston, but fumbled when she uttered the tired claim that Trump is a racist bigot.
“After the election I was going around consoling people. I said, ‘Guys, look on the bright side. Look at this.’ I was telling everybody… ‘I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president,'” she said.
“Before Sykes could even finish the jab, the stadium filled with thousands echoed with angry boos,” reports CBS News.
Sykes then started berating members of the audience who were booing, saying, “F*** you, motherf****ers. F*** all y’all. F**** all y’all.”
Sykes departed from politics later in the set, but later gave the audience the middle finger as she walked off stage, as seen on Sunday’s cover of the Boston Herald.
That’s not the first time a comedian lost control of an audience after insulting Trump.
Earlier in the election season, comedian Amy Schumer was also booed after going on an anti-Trump rant.
Contrast those responses to comedian Dave Chappelle’s comments on Trump featured on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

“Before I go, I do want to say one thing and this is not a joke, but I think it’s important that I say this because they’re marching up the street right now as we speak,” Chappelle said.
“So, in that spirit, I’m wishing Donald Trump luck,” he said. “And I’m going to give him a chance. And we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one, too.”
