Why is George still in the USA? Last November after the election of President Trump, Lopez was one of many celebrities who said they’d leave the US if Trump was elected. Lopez said, “Listen man, I’m in escrow so don’t worry about my residential status. I’m already in escrow, motherf—er. And I’m not going to tell you where I’m going to go because it will drive up real estate prices ’cause by the end of the year no one’s going to want to be here.”
Alas, he’s still working in the US. And still being a jerk.
From HuffPo: George Lopez lost it on a female audience member who evidently didn’t appreciate a racist joke the comedian told at his show in Phoenix, Arizona, Saturday night.
“There are only two rules in the Latino family. Don’t marry somebody black, and don’t park in front of our house,” Lopez said during his set, which prompted a woman in the audience to put up her middle finger.
In a clip of the incident obtained by TMZ, Lopez is seen responding to the woman’s gesture by calling her a “bitch” and telling her, “Sit your fking ass down or get the fk out.”
“Sit your fking ass down,” Lopez repeated three times. “I’m talking, bitch. You paid to see a show. Sit your ass down. You can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherfking place. Sit your fking ass down or get the fk out of here.”
“You have two choices,” he continued. “Shut the fk up or get the fk out. I’ll tell you what. I’ll make the choice for you. Get the f**k out of here. I’ll make the choice for you. Bye. Bye. Bye.”
Eventually Lopez’s tirade against the woman became too much, and she and her friends left. “Four seats just opened up front,” Lopez said as he watched her walk away.
Lopez has yet to speak publicly on the incident, and while The Huffington Post reached out for comment from his representatives, we did not receive a response by publication time.
