George Lopez Goes on Tirade After Audience Member Objects to Joke About Interracial Marriage: ‘B*tch, Sit Your F*cking Ass Down’

At a concert in Phoenix over the weekend, George Lopez joked, “There are only two rules in the Latino family: Don’t marry somebody black, and don’t park in front of our house.” Any context or tone beyond the words is hard to glean, however, as Lopez was pulled away from finishing the bit by an objecting audience member who flipped Lopez off. In response, Lopez lost it. At first offhandedly telling the reportedly black and Mexican woman to “sit your fucking ass down,” he then ramped up his attack. He continued: “I’m talking, bitch, sit your fucking ass down. You paid to see a show, sit your ass down. You can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherfucking place, so sit your fucking ass down or get the fuck out of here … I’ll make the choice for you. Get the fuck out of here.” Only once the woman left the venue did Lopez stop. So … no need to ask Lopez about the place of political correctness in comedy, huh.
