(Newser) – Amy Schumer has something to say to the 200 audience members who walked out of her Tampa, Fla., show Sunday night after she started dissing Donald Trump, People reports. "Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now," she said during her Tuesday night show at New York City's Madison Square Garden as she read out loud a letter she'd written to the Tampa walk-outs. "How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?"

"After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people—who’ve been tricked into it," she continued. "And Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!" The show had started with a "Trump Supporter Trigger Warning" flashing on screen, Fox News reports.
