George Lopez Calls A Woman 'Bitch' For Her Reaction To His Racist Joke
"You have two choices: Shut the f**k up or get the f**k out," Lopez said.

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.”

George Lopez made a joke about anti-blackness in the latino community in which he says "you can't bring a black guy home" and now people are calling him racist but that wasn't a racist joke?? Unless I'm somehow mistaken? It just didn't seem clear to me.

Now I didn’t see the rest of the bit nor do I know what he was going to say about it, but to me, it doesn’t seem like he’s bringing it up as something that we need to discuss as a community. It reads more like “har har don’t date the blacks! Mejorando la raza! Also don’t park in front of our houses”.  Maybe if he was going to call out Latinxs for the antiblackness in the community while at the same time appropriating aspects of blackness, using the n word, crying for solidarity without reciprocation, maybe it would be different. 

For one, that shit’s not a joke. There are tons of mixed latinxs, myself included, who have felt the repercussions of this. It’s flat out racist. 

Two, his response to someone offended by this is to call her a bitch, tell her to shut the fuck up, and kick her out? Like seriously? And it’s not like he’s a stranger to standing up to racism. He was one of the very vocal voices against Donald Trump from the moment he opened he mouth about Mexicans.
