Reno may be the Biggest Little City in the World but it's not getting any love from Amy Schumer.

The comedian was recently asked by BBC Newsnight what is the worst place to spend the weekend. She responds with Reno, Nevada -- saying Nevada the incorrect way in the process.

When asked why, she said, "Because it's a dump."

Schumer performed at Reno's Grand Sierra Resort in April 2015.

Reno residents responded to the video in the Facebook comments.

"It's a dump? Hm. Born and raised in Reno, what did you do while you were here? Walk 4th street?" Tina Young wrote. "All cities have their problems, learn how to say NEVADA we don't want you here anyways!"

"Reno, Ne-VA-DUH," Briana Maselli wrote. "And you must have just stayed within your hotel, if you actually ventured out and about you'd see it's not actually a dump."
