Sykes stormed off stage at charity show

 

Wanda Sykes shouted a series of expletives while giving the middle finger to the audience during a charity event in Boston Saturday.

The comedian flipped off the crowd at Boston's TD Garden arena after she was booed for her anti-Trump comments at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser on behalf of the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care.

"I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president," Sykes told the crowd according to the Boston Herald. "He's just the first confirmed one, that's it."

Sykes' comments were met with loud boos, prompting the comedian to yell out, "F--k you, motherf---er, f--k all of y'all."

She then began pointing at various audience members and said, "F--k you, you, you."

Before exiting the stage, the Boston Herald reports a woman came out and hugged Sykes while holding a peace sign which elicited cheers from the audience.

Fellow comic and performer Denis Leary defended Sykes and told the crowd she deserved their respect.
