WATCH: George Lopez apologizes to ‘white privilege’ after anti-Trump jokes backfire at kids’ charity event

Comedian George Lopez recently headlined a juvenile diabetes charity event in Denver, and his anti-Trump shtick didn’t resonate with the audience:

EXCLUSIVE: George Lopez was booed off stage over his anti-Trump comedy routine at a gala in Denver

When the audience did not respond well, he quipped, "Are you El Chapo people?"

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.

An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”

We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”

And here’s what happened just after the reported booing:

“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.”


When will comedians learn? Like sports, people don’t want politics with their pastimes!!!

Poor #GeorgeLopez. He thought his #LatinPrivilege meant he could be #racist along with attacking @POTUS #LopezNotSoFunny

As has been apparent for awhile, Lopez has an anti-white people problem.

If you live inside the liberal bubble long enough, you lose touch with America.

Lopez apparently still hasn’t moved out of the country, as he said he was going to do after Trump won the election.
