Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton's campaign is trying to force the iconic comedy club Laugh Factory to take down a video on its website with five comedians making fun of her, Judicial Watch reports. 

The three-minute video contains vulgar language and also references Clinton's preference for pantsuits, rumors of her sexuality and the Monica Lewinsky scandal from her husband's presidency.

Club owner Jamie Masada told Judicial Watch a "prominent" member of the Clinton campaign, whom he would not identify, called him and demanded the video be removed and asked for personal contact information of the five comedians featured.

Masada said he refused and hung up the phone.

"They threatened me, Masada said. "I have received complains before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don't cut the video."

The caller "said the video was disgusting and asked who put me up to this," Masada said.

His comedy stage is a place where freedom of speech abides, Masada said, adding that he doesn't care who is offended.

"Just last night we had Dana Carvey doing Donald Trump and it was hilarious," he said.
