It looks like Amy Schumer is going back on her word and not leaving America after all now that Trump was elected.
She made an Instagram post in which she said her comments were made “in jest.”
“First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest,” Shumer wrote. “Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser.”
She has been a long-time vocal supporter of Hillary and it was in a BBC interview in September that she said she would have to learn Spanish if Trump were elected as she would “move to Spain or somewhere.”
It was in October that hundreds of Trump supporters got up and walked out of her show in Tampa after she began mocking Trump.
“My heart is in a million pieces,” Schumer wrote Wednesday. “My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now. Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed.”
Schumer also went after those who voted for Trump, claiming they are “not just misinformed,” but also “weak.”
“You didn’t even attempt information,” she added. “You say lock her 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 dedicated her entire life to public service and got our children Heath care and education without discrimination. he didn’t pay his workers. Started a fake college. Ripped people off. Never paid his taxes and sexually assaulted women and on and on She would have taken care of us.”
