Instead of leaving her audience howling in laughter Saturday night, comedian Margaret Cho left them railing in protest as she ranted about rape and white privilege.

Witnesses told TMZ that she began her appearance at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, New Jersey, with what they called a “Debbie downer” — her own sexual assault, the death of comedian Gary Shandling, and her claim that whites have it too easy.

She also included several gay jokes in her repertoire that weren’t well received.

Much of the audience left before the close of her act, with one asking, “This is comedy before Easter?? Rape, rape, rape?”

She referred to those heading for the exits as overprivileged white racists, adding, “You will never get a cent of the money back that you paid.”

She later took to Twitter and attributed the strange act to jet lag — but refused to apologize..

Although her fans saw nothing wrong with the act, others felt she seemed to miss the whole point of entertainment.
