George Lopez’s success over the years as a stand-up comedian have led him to a number of televisions shows. However, on Saturday night, the Mexican-American comic had a performance that he will not forget anytime soon.
The controversy that Lopez found himself entangled in began when he said, “there are only two rules in the Latino family; don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.” While most of the audience exploded in laughter, one woman in the front row wasn’t too enthused. She took this opportunity to stand up and give Lopez the middle finger.
Rather than do what most comics to when they are being heckled – show the heckler that it’s their show by putting them in their place – he got extremely confrontational. He declared, “If you can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherfucking place. So sit your ass down or get the fuck out of here.” Just moments after that, he kicked her out of the venue with a security escort.
George Lopez has not yet commented on the incident.
