George Lopez Ignites Twitter War After Calling Black Heckler a ‘B—-‘

”The problem here is how disrespectful he is to women,“ writes one observer

Another day, another social media war over a comedian’s politically incorrect stage rant. This time around, it’s George Lopez who is the offending jokester — and Twitter is ablaze with debate when the performer’s name emerged as a top trending topic for the day.

During a standup gig in Phoenix on Tuesday night, Lopez made a joke about the two rules in a Latino family: “Don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.”

A black woman in the front row responded by flipping off Lopez, which caused the comedian to become unglued.

“”I’m talking, b—-,” he hissed. ” You paid to see a show, sit your ass down. You can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherf—–g place. Sit your ass down or get the f— out of here.”

The crowd applauded Lopez for his rant, but incident proved to be divisive on Twitter. Some sided with Lopez and tweeted the usual mantra from the comedy community that states that society is too PC and needs to get a thicker skin. Other people just think Lopez isn’t all that funny. And sprinkled through it all were some tweets from Trump supporters who are always ready to pile on a celebrity caught in a controversy. Some even panicked when they saw his name trending, assuming the comedian was dead. Watch Lopez go nuclear in the clip below and judge for yourself and see what everyone is saying:
