UPDATE, 1:55pm ET: Wasserman Schultz said Monday afternoon she would no longer be appearing to "gavel in" the Democratic National Convention.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was booed off the stage and heckled this morning at a breakfast for Florida delegates.
The Florida congresswoman is resigning as DNC chair as the Democratic National Convention begins today in Philadelphia.
Wasserman Schultz's exit comes after leaked DNC emails revealed an apparent anti-Bernie Sanders bias in her operation.

Some supporters tried to drown out the boos from Sanders supporters, who held up signs that said "emails."
When she finished speaking, she walked out surrounded by security guards as people shouted "shame!" at her.
Wasserman Schultz is slated to appear at the DNC later today to officially kick off the four-day event, but she's not expected to give a speech.
She attempted to give her prepared remarks despite the chaos.
"We are the state that will deliver the White House to make sure that we can continue to make the progress that we have been able to make under Barack Obama for the last eight years," she said.
