ABOUT 200 AUDIENCE members walked out of an Amy Schumer stand-up show in Florida after she called him an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”

Sunday’s show in Tampa saw the comedian booed by sections of the audience and her responding by telling them to leave.

When some continued to boo, Schumer asked security to escort them out.

Schumer had earlier invited a man up on stage and asked him why he was a Trump supporter.

A reporter for the Tampa Bay Times said that the Schumer’s show began with familiar gags about sex before she moved into more political territory.

“You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my pussy,” she said.

Going further in attacks on Trump, Schumer went after his impulsiveness.

“Do you get worried at all with how impulsive he is?,”  Schumer asked

That he gets so fired up from Saturday Night Live doing a skit on him …do you worry he’ll be impulsive and get us in a lot of fucking trouble we can’t get out of?

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

Her decision to go political has divided fans, both those who were there and those who weren’t.
