Margaret Cho struck some serious nerves with her audience at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, NJ.

In all our years, we’ve never seen a comedy club audience THIS upset. Apparently during her show she ranted about being a rape survivor, threw in a few gay jokes, and talked about white people having it easy — and the predominately white crowd couldn’t take it.

In fact, the audience completely revolted.

via TMZ:

Witnesses tell us Cho started her set with a “debbie downer” discussion of her rape, Garry Shandling‘s death … and white people having it so easy.

We’re told she also made several gay jokes, and at least one such punchline led to 2 men in the audience fighting.

When much of the crowd had enough, they broke for the exit. As one angry customer put it, “This is comedy before Easter?? Rape, rape, rape?”

We’re told Cho called some of the people bailing, racists and overprivileged white people. She blurted out, “You will never get a cent of the money back that you paid.”

We’ve reached out to Cho and her team, but no response yet. On Twitter, she blamed the mess on jet lag … but felt there was nothing wrong with talking rape during her routine. 

Margaret took to Twitter to defend her show.

Just listen to the audience commentary in the video below.
