Comedian George Lopez recently headlined a juvenile diabetes charity event in Denver, and his anti-Trump shtick didn’t resonate with the audience:

Via Page Six:

We’re 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 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.”

And here’s what happened just after the reported booing:

“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.”


Lopez apparently still hasn’t moved out of the country, as he said he was going to do after Trump won the election.
