George Lopez lost it on a female audience member who evidently didn’t appreciate a racist joke the comedian told at his show in Phoenix, Arizona, Saturday night.
“There are only two rules in the Latino family. Don’t marry somebody black, and don’t park in front of our house,” Lopez said during his set, which prompted a woman in the audience to put up her middle finger.
In a clip of the incident obtained by TMZ, Lopez is seen responding to the woman’s gesture by calling her a “bitch” and telling her, “Sit your f**king ass down or get the f**k out.”
“Sit your f**king ass down,” Lopez repeated three times. “I’m talking, bitch. You paid to see a show. Sit your ass down. You can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherf**king place. Sit your f**king ass down or get the f**k out of here.”
“You have two choices,” he continued. “Shut the f**k up or get the f**k out. I’ll tell you what. I’ll make the choice for you. Get the f**k out of here. I’ll make the choice for you. Bye. Bye. Bye.”
Eventually Lopez’s tirade against the woman became too much, and she and her friends left.
“Four seats just opened up front,” Lopez said as he watched her walk away.
Lopez has yet to speak publicly on the incident, and while The Huffington Post reached out for comment from his representatives, we did not receive a response by publication time.
