WASTED George Lopez Booted From Event After Being Booed Off Stage For Trump Jokes at Charity Dinner (VIDEO)
It seems like comedian George Lopez has been in a tailspin since President Trump won the White House. After being booted off stage at a charity event for making joking about President Trump, a drunken Lopez was escorted from a KISS event.

George Lopez wanted to shout it out loud on stage with KISS, but the problem was band members were just trying to answer questions from fans … so George got the boot.
Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the fellas were doing a Q&A Thursday on their annual KISS Kruise when Lopez got disruptive, which you see from the video. Check it out … the crowd begins to boo and yell to take his mic away. We’re told George was very drunk.
At one point, KISS manager Doc McGhee leaves the stage because he’s so annoyed, and we’re told security escorted George off shortly afterward. He was spotted in the crowd sleeping later on during another band’s performance.
Akin to many of his peers in Hollywood, comedian George Lopez suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome, “A mental dysfunction causing those detractors with hateful thoughts and feelings about Donald Trump to go unhinged.” Lopez’s illness didn’t let up recently, as the comedian was booed off stage and escorted out of a gala after his jokes about President Trump fell flat in October.

Emmy award winner Chris Palente tweeted this out but later took it down:
New York Post reported on the Lopez disaster:
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.”
Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “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.”
We’re told Lopez also told a joke about Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, saying, “I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels underneath.”
When the audience did not respond well, he quipped, “Are you El Chapo people?” in reference to the drug kingpin who has used tunnels to evade authorities.
After bombing his set, Lopez was escorted from the Carousel Ball.
