Criticizing Donald Trump’s racist, sexist, homophobic views at this weekend’s Comics Come Home event in Boston, Wanda Sykes found herself under attack when the audience responded with a heavy chorus of booing. The anti-Trump portion of Sykes’s set kicked off as Sykes joked about comforting people with the thought that, “This is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president. He ain’t the first one, he’s just the first confirmed one.” Those comments solicited a heavy round of boos from the Boston crowd, to which Sykes responded: “Fuck all y’all.” She then pointed to specific angry audience members, repeating, “Fuck you, you, you … all y’all,” and reportedly gave the audience the finger. As the crowd refused to let up, Sykes continued to challenge their seeming defense of Trump, insisting, “The evidence is there. How can you say he’s not racist. ‘Grab ‘em by the pussy’? How can you say he’s not sexist? How can you say he’s not racist? How can you say he’s not homophobic?” Watch footage of the combative interaction below.
