Wanda Sykes got into it with a Boston crowd after her jokes about Donald Trump were less than well-received, The Huffington Post reports. The comedian was performing at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser on Saturday night when she touched on Trump's surprising win, quipping that it wasn't the first time the country had elected a "racist, sexist homophobic president."
"He's just the first confirmed one, that's it," Sykes continued.
The audience reacted by booing her, at which point Sykes fired back, saying, "F**k you, motherf**ker, f**k all of y'all."
"F**k you, you, you," she said, pointing to various sections of the crowd.
The 2016 election continues to be one of the most polarizing races in our nation's history. Watch the incident below.
Sykes addressed rumors that she was booed off stage via a post on her Facebook page.
"First of all, I was not booed OFF stage," she wrote. "I didn't go anywhere. I was booed while ON stage in the middle of my set. Some people in the audience didn't want to hear my Trump jokes. Hell, I couldn't even get to the punch lines. They were booing the setups. They were yelling for me to shut the F up and to go F myself, so I simply told them how that made me feel."
"I then moved on to other material, got some laughs and said goodnight," she continued. "I left the stage with my head held high and with my middle finger even higher. Then 'some woman,' who happens to be my beautiful wife, ran onstage, gave me a huge kiss, and flashed the peace sign. To my surprise, the audience cheered and applauded. It was a great moment and it gave me a little hope for our future."
