George Lopez, the popular actor and comedian who had his own show called ‘George Lopez’ in the early 2000s, created controversy at his own casino comedy show.

Since appearing on the popular sitcom, the comedian has aged. The video clip shown below resembles a coach with his little league team telling the kids about the three-strikes-and-you’re-out rule. According to Wikipedia, Lopez has a kidney condition that causes his kidneys to break down.

In the clip, a fan interrupts the show, and George says, “That’s One.” The audience seems confused as to if the comedian is joking, and then George gives Warning #2.

After a lady offers to buy George a drink, he lets the audience know he can’t hear and tells them to stop yelling.

Next, George alerts the audience to sit and be quiet. The audience starts shouting boos at him. At this point, George is done, and he walks out of his own show.

Per TMZ, the comedian’s team stated:

It’s the venue or casino’s job to provide a good experience for both the artist and the fans, but the casino failed in this regard. The audience was overserved and unruly, and the casino staff was unable to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for the artist and guests.

Eagle Mountain Casino saw things differently. Their Instagram response is posted below.
