Amy Schumer is firing back at the Tampa crowd that booed and walked out of her recent stand-up show.

Hundreds of audience members walked out of Schumer's show on Sunday when she began talking negatively about Donald Trump. Schumer also invited a Trump supporter on stage to discuss why he liked the GOP candidate.

At Schumer's Madison Square Garden show in New York City Tuesday night, the comedian read an open letter she wrote that addressed the Tampa walk-outs.

"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," she said Tuesday. "How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?"

The audience was reportedly receptive to her message, and she continued reading, "After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people - who've been tricked into it!"

She also emphasized one of the lines she delivered at the Tampa stage that caused many of the boos and walkouts.

"And Tampa, I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn't have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!"

Schumer's incident comes among escalating tensions between Trump and Hillary Clinton supporters. An open advocate of Clinton, the comedian stated on Watch What Happens Live in September that the first debate showed the differences between the two candidates, noting, "What's great about Hillary is that she has more composure than the 'Real Housewives', so it's not gonna make for great reality TV but I think she'll run the nation well."
