TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — After calling Tampa “horrendous” in her best-selling memoir, comedian Amy Schumer appears to be stirring up more controversy in the Bay Area.

In a YouTube video uploaded by user “MommaPayne” on Sunday, Amy Schumer can be seen pulling a fan named Dave on stage during her show at Amalie Arena Sunday night and asking him why he supports Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The fan responds by saying that he is voting for Trump because he “can’t trust Hillary.”

Following their conversation on stage, Schumer calls Trump an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake college-starting monster.”

In the video, fans can be heard booing the comedian and seen getting up out of their seats.

Following the show, social media users sounded off.

Twitter user Krissie Fullerton tweeted, “Amazing night seeing @amyschumer in Tampa! Don’t worry, some of us are thinking about our votes #ImWithHer”

In a post, Facebook user Darcy Hermida said Schumer was “nastier than Trump has ever been” and that she hopes “Amy likes her new homeless shelter.”

Schumer was only in Tampa for one show and will take the stage next on Tuesday in New York City.
