Comedienne Amy Schumer, who had earlier said she would leave US if Donald Trump wins in the presidential election, has slammed his supporters for mocking her over the statement as he has now won the presidency. The 35-year-old actress revealed her anger on Instagram, saying she was joking about leaving the US.
“First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest. Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news,” she wrote. During an interview in September she said she was planning to move to Spain should Trump win the election. “My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy,” she said at the time.
Schumer went on writing, “Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now.”
Schumer then directly attacked those, who had voted forthe Republican presidential candidate calling them “weak” and “misinformed”. “You say lock her (Hillary Clinton) up and you know something about the word email but what was in the emails? You have no clue. Well I’ll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet. They said nothing incriminating. Nothing,” she wrote.
