Comedian Wanda Sykes gave the TD Garden crowd the middle finger as she stormed off stage after being booed. She made a comment on how Trump was a confirmed racist and sexist and the crowd wasn’t putting up with it.
Although other comics, including Worcester native Denis Leary, waded into politics during their sets — Danvers’ own Nick DiPaolo was booed during his — it seemed the crowd reacted far more harshly to Sykes’ take on Trump and the California comedian was quick to fire back.
“(Expletive) you, (expletive) you, (expletive) you,” Sykes said to the audience members who were booing her set at the country’s longest-running comedy fundraiser.
The booing began about five minutes into Sykes’ performance and she stayed on stage to finish her set, also delivering jokes on topics outside of the political realm.
But before she left the stage, Sykes flipped the three-quarters capacity crowd the finger when the boo-birds came back out to send her off the stage.
Before she exited stage left, a woman came out and gave Sykes a hug and a big kiss while throwing up a peace sign, prompting wild cheers from the audience.
