A heckler who was thrown out of Amy Schumer’s stand-up comedy show in Sweden after yelling “show us your tits” has apologised for the comment, saying he did not mean to “sound so sexist”.
The heckler, who wished to remain anonymous, told Swedish radio station PP3 that alcohol was to blame for the outburst.
“It was a hectic day at the job. I didn’t manage to have lunch and it ended a bit later than I thought … I was really drunk on an empty stomach,” he said.
“Due to the intoxication I thought ‘say this’, which was wrong. She speaks a lot about herself in that way and it felt fitting to me in my intoxicated state.
“I certainly didn’t intent to sound sexist or offensive.
“I really don’t feel very good.”
The outburst happened just two minutes into Ms Schumer’s Stockholm show on Friday, with a video of the exchange going viral on social media.
The comedian had the rest of the crowd point the heckler out and told them: “Don’t throw him out, just look him in the eye”.
She allowed him to stay but warned:
“If you yell out again, you’re going to be yelling ‘show your tits’ to people in the parking lot”.
After another outburst, the man was removed by security to the sounds of a cheering crowd.
The man claims to have said “I’ll still love you anyway”, but hearing him speak again was enough for Ms Schumer to have him escorted out.
