In an alternate universe, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump gets to take the victim card. This is after "Saturday Night Live" alumni Amy Schumer threw shade to the business mogul in front of thousands of audience in Tampa, Florida, making 200 of them boycott the event after the diss.

The 2016 Pirelli calendar girl was in the middle of her gig at Amalie Arena when she called Trump an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake college-starting monster." Adding fuel to the fire, Schumer even asked one of the audience to get onboard the dissing fest, Daily Mail report says.

While most of the 10,000-strong audience who laughed at Schumer's blunt political joke, 200 Trump supporters found it distasteful and walked out of the event. Needless to say, this did not faze the funny woman to burn the house and continue with the show.

In a statement via Entertainment Tonight, Schumer expressed her gratitude for the people who appreciated her tactless, no-holds-barred kind of humor. "I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night!" Schumer said. "I want to thank the 8,400 people who stayed. We had a great time! We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition."

The 35-year-old comedienne has been open about her support for Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton. As the November presidential election draws near, more Hollywood stars came up for the support of Clinton and slammed Melania Trump's husband.

Robert DeNiro also criticized Trump earlier last week, says a People report. The actor said he wants to punch the business magnate in the face. He called Trump as "blatantly stupid" as well.

Meanwhile, "Orange Is The New Black" cast and crew, led by Lea DeLaria who plays as Big Boo, protested against Trump as well according to Out Magazine. They named themselves as "Vaginas Against Trump" following the highly controversial sexual assault issues that came with the leak of "Trump Tapes."
