Comic George Lopez (https://pagesix.com/tag/george-lopez/) was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.

We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.

Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”

I remember when Lopez was funny at one time.

What an idiot.

From the link in the OP:


TV host Chris Parente posted on Twitter, (https://twitter.com/chrisparente/status/916875369617039361) “big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.” But a source close to the comedian insisted to Page Six that Lopez’s segment was “only supposed to be four minutes,” even though he was listed as the night’s emcee.

Who hired him for the job anyway, they should have known he was going to run his communist mouth. I'm sure there are thousands of honest real comedians out there that would have loved the job. You can bet he didn't show up for free !
