A supporter of ex-President Donald Trump threw a beer can at a comedian after suspecting she voted for his successor, Joe Biden, during a show that was quickly losing some of its humor.
Comedian Ariel Elias played along with the jokes and remarks, although they got pretty ugly, eventually picked up the can and drank the alcohol.
A Video of the New Jersey incident shared by Elias shows a woman in the audience asking her, “Did you vote for Donald Trump?”
Elias, a New Yorker whose online bio states that she is a “Kentucky Jew,” replies, “No. Why are you asking me that in here when I know I’m the only Jew in this room? Are you trying to kill me?’
The heckler doesn’t stop there and goes on to say, “So you voted for Biden?”
‘I do not know. What does it matter?’ Elijah answers.
The guest takes this response as an indication that Elias voted for Trump’s challenger in the 2020 presidential election.
,Of course you have!’ says the human. “I could tell just by your jokes that you voted for Biden.”
At this point, Elias decides to try and take over the conversation.
“I can tell by the fact that you still talk when no one wants you to have voted for Trump,” the comedian says.
Elias continues her act when suddenly an object is thrown at her and crashes into the brick wall behind her. She is visibly stunned but continues to pick up the can.
“To answer the most obvious question, yes, I picked up the remains of the beer and drank it,” she says in one tweet.
Dino Ibelli, the owner of Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club, confirmed that a man who is the partner of the woman who asked the questions threw the beer can. Ibelli told BuzzFeed News that the man left the comedy club but contacted police and the suspect has been identified.
Meanwhile, Elias shared on Twitter on Sunday: “Fwiw the club are charging the guy and booked me to come back in April.”
The episode shocked viewers, who were heard saying, “Are you kidding me?”
Another viewer said: “I will never come out with this group of people again.”
