Skip to comments.George Lopez: I was fired because I'm brown!
Posted on 08/11/2011 7:10:39 AM PDT by Mrs. Frogjerk
George Lopez wasn't afraid to talk about show getting canceled on "Lopez Tonight" yesterday -- but he told the crowd that he was being fired because of the color of his skin.
Lopez -- whose voice was featured in the "Smurfs" movie -- was talking about how Sony has greenlit a "Smurfs" sequel during his monologue ... and quipped, "So today I lost some work because I'm brown, but I got some work because I'm blue!"
Is Lopez REALLY blaming race ... or was he just trying to crack a bad joke?

When does his plane leave for Canada?
....Because you’re brown?
If you say so.....
“So long”, er...”Adios” to that loser.
Its easier than admitting he's not funny.
Lopez’s ONLY claim to fame is being able to make his eyes as big as saucers while cracking a lame joke and waiting for the obligatory laughter.
somebody tell me I’m wrong about this.
How about the fact that you did not have the viewers to support what advertisers wanted. Move to Telemundo and see if you get viewers there. No one requires that you only work on one network.
He committed the mortal sin of comedy.
He wasn’t funny and his nonstop mugging for the cameras couldn’t conceal the fact.
Because you're a humorless racist rumpswab.
Wow! I didn't see that one coming! /sarc
He was hired because he was brown.. he was fired because he isn’t funny.
How many shows has this guy had that’s been axed over the last few years?
It seems he’s been canned more times than second rate tuna.
I’ve seen his routine. I couldn’t even sit through 5 minutes of it. He is terrible and I just don’t get how he has gotten as far as he has!
Obamas set at getting race wars going and hollywood will help....not a concern of peoples lifes for doing so.
You got fired because young people are doing other things at midnight. And us old people think you suck. Sorry G—you used to be funny.
I agree with you. You are so right. He is definitely funny...looking.
“When does his plane leave for Canada?”
Has anyone told this twit that Canada is starting a right turn too? That only leaves him with that cesspool south of the border to return to.
Uh, no George... you were fired because your show sucked. Your stand-up routine could was as entertaining as jock itch.
Not a lot of brown people on Telemundo neither, if you watched the Novelas, you’d think Mexico was a white, European country.
I predicted this the day after Lopez Tonight went on the air.
It is EXACTLY the same thing he said when ABC canceled his sitcom. Gotta have thicker skin than that if you are gonna hack it in showbiz.
Has he mentioned the fact that Conan O’Brien is one of the Ten Whitest Guys on the Planet yet?
I loved the show with him married and two kids....thought it was real good.
Ummm, Telemundo would probably spit him out. Does he even speak Spanish? I know Paul Rodriguez does, but George Lopez???
stand-up routine could was = stand-up routine was
He was brown when he was hired..go figure
From the racist Chris Rock School of affirmative action, unfunny.
I guess George’s lousy ratings had nothing to do with it.
His sitcom was only funny, because of the actress who played his mom.
Nope, you are absolutely correct. His bug-eye expression was about all he had in his stand-up routine. It was funny the first 100 times, but after that, meh.
Nope! He was HIRED because he was brown (Hispanic) he was FIRED because he isn’t funny.
Seems like Lopez let it all go to his large, economy-sized head.
The joke that backfired. Now, THAT’s funny. LOL
Too true... the man is simply not funny, unless you think crass is equivalent to being funny. Here’s one for ya... “how do you say ‘man’ in spanish?... Hombre?... WRONG!... ‘maing’...
His sitcom did have an excellent supporting cast, his mother, Ernie, and his father in-law, were all hillarious, George’s character was the least funny of the lot.
I'm sure he believes that his poor ratings aren't the cause of his firing, so it must be his race.
Note to George: While there are a lot of “latinos” in the U.S. a surprisingly large amount of them DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH! Maybe telemundo would be a better venue for someone who considers himself a mexican first and everything else is secondary.
I tried to watch more than once but the show was unwatchable.
European as in Spanish. You’re right.
Ironically, the only reason he got the job is because he’s brown. It gave his a license to use hate speech and racial slurs in passing as a comedian.
BS is brown when the bull hasn’t had enough green grass.
Brown, my a$$. He’s a RED.
Hit the road, George. Black, brown, white, green, purple...whatever. You failed due to lack of talent. It's that simple.
I never could figure out why he had a show in the first place. He is not funny.
actually, he was hired because he was brown. He was fired because his ratings were not good, and they can make more ad money with a different program in that slot.
How brown did you get to be fired?.....
You were fired because you are one big pendejo.
Hore-Gay has it all figured out. You can't sneak anything past this guy.
Racist companies hire incompetent minorities just so they can turn around and fire them.
Then, being mean as well as racist, they always let them know they are being fired because of race or skin color. That's just to rub it in.
They have fun doing it and fighting off the lawsuits over racism gives their lazy legal departments something to do.
George Lopez’s comedy, as I remember it, was more in line with Gilbert Esquivel’s. Gilbert is a born again Christian, with a clean routine now. His act focuses on the East LA Mexican social culture, etc. Self-deprecating, etc. - (Ha, Ha, Is there any other kind of comedian?) - Anyway, Esquivel IS funny. Saw him on Thou Shalt Laugh, with Patricia Heaton hosting. Michael Jr. was also on. Excellent show.
The only talent this guy has is the ability to spit while talking. We call him “racist Whor-hay” around my house.
You were fired because you are one big pendejo.”
LOL!!! Love this!!!
