George Lopez went 0-100 on a female audience member during a show after she reacted negatively toward one of his jokes. While performing a stand up gig at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, the Mexican-American comedian joked, “there are only 2 rules in the Latino family — don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.” After the joke, the woman stood up showing her dipleasure with the joke, which caught the comedian’s attention. In a clip of the incident obtained by TMZ, Lopez is seen responding to the woman’s gesture by calling her a “b*tch” and giving her an ultimatum, “Sit your f**king ass down or get the f**k out.”
He continued to attack her as the crowd cheered him on, “I’m talking, b*tch. 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.” After minutes of repeating the two choices to her, he finally decided, “I’ll make the choice for you. Get the f**k out of here. I’ll make the choice for you. Bye. Bye. Bye,” as the crowd applauded.
Twitter erupted into a civil war after the incident. Some fans believe he reacted like any comedian would to a disgruntled fan. If you can’t take a joke, why are you here? Others, however, think George’s use of profanity was uncalled for. What do you think?

The gag is, if you're funny enough, you can get away with saying pretty much anything. George Lopez just ain't funny enough.

George Lopez called a woman a bitch. He should be careful with that kind of behavior or he might end up becoming president.

Are people really mad at George Lopez? He's a COMEDIAN. He's made jokes about EVERY RACE, mainly his OWN. Stop being so sensitive

This George Lopez thing is really not that serious. I've watched black comics for the last 24 years, clown every race under the sun.
