After about 200 people walked out of an Amy Schumer comedy show Sunday in Tampa, Fla., the comedian took the opportunity during her show Tuesday in New York to read an open letter to the people who walked out.

Us Weekly reports that Schumer’s letter made it clear she’s not sorry about the incident, in which she got political and offended Donald Trump supporters.

“Some of the comedian’s Florida fans disapproved of Schumer’s political commentary, including her jabs that the real estate mogul, 70, is an ‘orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster’ and that he ‘wants to finger his daughter,'” Us reports.

Appearing at Madison Square Garden, Schumer delivered her “nonapology” to mostly cheers, the story reports. Her message began: “Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now. How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?”

The last line was a reference to her bringing a Trump supporter on stage to explain his views.

She later told her New York audience: “I look forward to putting this all behind us in a couple weeks when Hillary Clinton is our motherf–king president!”
