Trump Supporter Throws Beer Can At Comedian For Voting For Biden

Over the weekend, comedian Ariel Elias was performing in New Jersey when a supporter Donald Trump threw a can of beer at her after discovering that she voted for President Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

The incident, which was captured on video and shared by Elias on her personal Twitter account, occurred on Saturday night when she was doing a set at Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club in Point Pleasant Beach.

Elias told Buzzfeed that she began the night with a routine of jokes about body image, but then decided to open the set up to a round of Q&As with the crowd.

The footage shows a woman from the group raising her hand up in the air and asking Elias: “Did you vote for Donald Trump?”

Elias said she was immediately unsettled by the highly politicized question and tried to de-escalate the interrogation by responding to the question with a joke, saying: “Why would you ask me that knowing I’m the only Jew in this room? Are you trying to get me killed?”

The interaction, unfortunately, didn’t stop there as the prodding guest then shouts back at the comedian: “So you voted for Biden?”

She responds, “I dunno. What does it matter?”

The heckler then uses Elias’s deflection as evidence that she did vote for Biden in the 2020 election and exclaims: “Yes, you did!” before adding, “I could just tell by your jokes you voted for Biden.”

Then a loud thud and splash of beer is seen hitting the brick wall behind her.

Stunned by the incident, Elias then turns to see the partially full beer next to her.

“I did pick up what was left of the beer and chug it,” tweeted the New York City-based comedian.
