“I wanted to address some of the accounts that have come up about last Saturday’s show in Boston,” the comedian began in a Facebook post last night. “First of all, I was not booed OFF stage. I didn’t go anywhere. I was booed while ON stage in the middle of my set.”
“Some people in the audience didn’t want to hear my Trump jokes. Hell, I couldn’t even get to the punchlines. They were booing the setups,” Sykes continued. “They were yelling for me to shut the F up and to go F myself, so I simply told them how that made me feel.”
“I then moved on to other material, got some laughs and said goodnight,” she wrote. “I left the stage with my head held high and with my middle finger even higher.”
“Then ‘some woman,’ who happens to be my beautiful wife, ran onstage, gave me a huge kiss, and flashed the peace sign,” Sykes concluded. “To my surprise, the audience cheered and applauded. It was a great moment and it gave me a little hope for our future.”
So, get it right, Internet.
During the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser at Boston’s TD Garden arena over the weekend, Sykes blasted the president-elect for being a racist, sexist homophobe.
“I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president,” said Sykes, according to the Boston Herald. “He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one.”
The crowd didn’t react well to Sykes’ comments as it booed her set, to which Sykes responded, “F— you, motherf—ers. F— all y’all. F— all y’all.” Many outlets reported that Sykes flipped off the audience, although that is not clear in the video.
“The evidence is there,” she added. “How can you say he is not racist? ‘Grab them by the p—y’? How can you say he’s not sexist? How can you say he’s not racist? How can you say he’s not homophobic?”
