Broadway star Patti LuPone had strong words for the Trump administration while on the Tony Awards red carpet Sunday, refusing to perform if the president ever attended her show.

LuPone, whose performance in “War Paint” earned her an acting nomination, said that President Donald Trump shouldn’t see her show, telling Variety reporter Gordon Cox on the red carpet that, “I won’t perform if he does.” When Cox asked LuPone why, she declared, “Because I hate the motherfucker, how’s that?”

The Huffington Post described the series of biting remarks as the “Fire Emoji Personified.”
