George Lopez doesn’t come to your office and flip you off, so he’d like his audience to provide the same courtesy in return.
At a recent stand-up show, the comedian got into it with a black woman in the crowd, calling her a “b—-” and booting her from the venue. It all started with a disapproving reaction to one of Lopez’s jokes. Here’s the punchline, which was caught on camera by TMZ: “There’s two rules in the f—ing Latino family: Don’t marry somebody black, and don’t park in front of our house.”
The setup was not included in the clip, which is posted above.
Visible in the footage, however, was a woman in the first few rows rising and sticking two middle fingers up at the comic.
“Sit your f—ing a– down,” Lopez instructed. “I’m talking, b—-, sit your f—ing a– down. You paid to see a show.”
He added: “If you can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherf—ing place. So sit your f—ing a– down or get the f— out of here.”
Lopez continued: “I’ll make the choice for you: Bye. Hey, four seats just opened upfront.”
The audience seemed to overwhelmingly show support for their entertainer that evening. Watch the video at the top of this story.
Below is what Lopez posted on social media this morning. It’s not quite an apology.
