Comic 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.
Were 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 doesnt, continues. Gets booed.
Were told that Lopez responded to Maffei, Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesnt change the way I feel about orange men.
Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, Listen, its about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.

Evil only triumphs when good men do nothing.
What a despicable horse’s @ss.
George Lopez want to turn America in to Mexica anyway. Anyone that doesn’t know that doesn’t follow his support of LaRaza.
Good, but if only a few people had torn up their checks and walked out we’d be seeing some changes. I doubt the people who put this thing on got the message if they raised “just” $1.65M.
One of the least funny comedians ever.
His entire act: I’m Mexican.
What an a**hole. Never found him remotely funny, either.
Spock tried to mind meld with Lopez.
And Spock farted.
Lopez is a bum.
‘think “Lopez Tonight” was rated one of the worst shows ever.
George Lopez is an alcoholic idiot and not the least bit funny
If America is so bad, then all his problems can be remedied by a trip south of the border and he is welcome to stay there.
George obviously does not X the -white Hispanic- box on forms so he can call himself a -person of color- instead. Racist tool.
POS will be in Reno sometime around thanksgiving. Hopefully low turnout.
So I apologize to your white privilege.

What a friggin idiot.....
‘White Privilege’ should have stood up and rescinded all the donations by the Whites and whoever else thought it was an idiotic thing to say.
I KNOW, if they had done that he really would have torn into them but they can loudly proclaim they will donate NOTHING as a result of HIS ‘efforts’ and threaten to boycott any such events in the future if this is what they are going to have to put up with.
Progessives are overplaying a bad hand. Lopez is free to self-deport.
Didn’t he leave his wife after she gave him a kidney? I cannot stand this man.
I wonder why the event hired a guy who hates rich people to entertain rich people.
Lopez, just another racist who thinks he’s Mexican yet was born in the USA, as though “Mexican” is a race.
