During her stand-up set Saturday at a Boston fundraiser, Wanda Sykes discussed her distaste for Donald Trump and was met with boos from the audience, prompting her to flip off the crowd as she stormed offstage, according to the Boston Herald

"After the election, I was going around consoling people. I said, 'Guys, look on the bright side,'" she said to the crowd during her set at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser at the TD Garden. "I am certain this is not the first time we've elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president; he ain't the first one. He's just the first confirmed one."

The crowd erupted in boos, leading Sykes to yell, "F--- all y'all," to the audience. "The evidence is there," she said. "How could you say he's not racist?"

Sykes joins a pool of fellow anti-Trump comedians, including Amy Schumer, who just last month was booed during her set in Tampa, Florida, after dismissing a Trump supporter off the stage and calling Trump an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starter monster."
