(Newser) – Apparently when Amy Schumer saying she's going to leave the country if Donald Trump is elected president was a joke, but other people saying the same thing is a serious matter. The comedian went on a rant against such people Wednesday on Instagram, first clarifying that she said she might move "in jest" before moving on to say that "anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser." The rant, which went on to decry those who voted for Trump as "weak," was posted next to a popular Trump meme in which Trump supposedly called Republicans "the dumbest group of voters in the country." Trump actually never said those words, a fact Schumer acknowledged to conclude her rant: "Yes this quote is fake but it doesn't matter."

As Us Weekly reports, Schumer said in an interview with the BBC in September that she was considering moving to Spain should Trump win, and that "my act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish." Click for nine more celebrities who made similar vows.
