George Lopez, booed off stage over anti-Trump jokes, slams crowd with insulting ‘apology’

Comedian George Lopez got booed off the stage at a charity event in Denver after making jokes about President Trump that fell flat.

Lopez then “apologized” for his lame jokes by insulting the audience with a race-baiting jab. The flap occurred last week at a posh charity gala to raise money for juvenile diabetes.

“Listen, it’s about the kids,” Lopez said (see video below). “I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America; it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”

Denver is an extremely liberal city, so you would’ve thought the anti-Trump jokes would have connected with the crowd. But like the NFL kneelers and Hollywood leftists, Lopez doesn’t realize there’s a time and a place for politics. And a charity event for children is not it.

Moreover, Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei — a Trump supporter who had donated $250,000 to the event — had asked Lopez to not joke about Trump.

“[Maffei had asked Lopez] nicely to stop making Trump jokes,” an audience member told Page Six. “George doesn’t, continues, and gets booed.”

After falling flat with the audience, Lopez announced a video segment and then never returned to the stage.

This isn’t the first time Lopez has attacked the audience after one of his jokes flopped. In February 2017, he called a woman a “b*tch” and kicked her out of his show because she didn’t like his comedy routine (video below).

“Sit your f*ckin’ ass down! Sit your f*ckin’ ass down!” he yelled. “I’m talking, b*tch. You paid to see a show. So sit your f*cking ass down … I tell you what, I’ll make the choice for you. Get the f*ck out of here!”

Among the jokes the Mexican-American made at that performance was this racist jab: “There are only 2 rules in the Latino family: don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.”

In November 2016, Lopez promised he would leave the United States if Donald Trump got elected president. We’re waiting, George.

There is a time and place to bring in politics. A charity fundraiser is not one of those times. And this has nothing to do with white priveledge.

He's an idiot. I mean what do you expect from a man who after his wife gives him a kidney to save him and he repays her by cheating on her and then divorcing her.

I think his statements were probably best left out during a fundraiser.  The attention should have been 100% dedicated toward the cause.  His statements took away from that.  But....he said what he said, and the audience reacted negatively to it.

I think this just shows everyone is sick of the politicising going on at what should be a time to help others and have a little fun. There is no escape from it, and people no matter their affiliation are just tired of it.

I agree with this.
