After veteran comic Wanda Sykes walked on stage at Boston's TD Garden Saturday night, no one in the audience was shocked when she began riffing on the surprising election of Republican firebrand Donald Trump to the White House.
But when Sykes started name-calling Trump, the crowd at the cancer benefit wasn't having it.
“I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president,” she said as boos started raining down upon her. "He ain't the first one, he's just first confirmed one. That's it."
But Sykes immediately cursed out the audience.
“F*** you, motherf***ers. F*** all y'all. F*** all y'all," she said before jabbing her finger at different sections of the arena. "F*** you — you, you, you, you, you, you — all y'all.”
Sykes stayed on stage to finish her performance, which included non-political jokes, the Boston Herald reported. But before she exited, the paper said Sykes gave the audience the finger as the booing returned — followed by a woman who appeared and gave Sykes a hug and kiss.
Here's a clip of some of Sykes' performance, along with booing. At least one guy off-camera gets into the act, too, chastising the crowd and supporting Sykes. (Content warning: Strong language):
