George Lopez went after Donald Trump while performing in Arizona on Saturday night, getting the audience at the Phoenix Celebrity Theatre to chant, “F*ck that puto” over and over. Puto is Spanish for a male prostitute. Lopez also repeatedly yelled, “This country is better with Latinos in it.” Watch the video below.
Lopez is obviously still ticked off about Trump’s comments that he made about Mexican immigrants while announcing his presidential candidacy. Trump said he believed that many Mexican immigrants coming into the U.S. are “rapists” and “criminals.” Not surprisingly, a slew of Latino celebrities, including Ricky Martin, Pitbull, Eva Longoria, and America Ferrera have spoken out against Trump.
What’s particularly interesting, is that Lopez is being strongly considered to replace Trump at the host of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Last week, during a phone call into “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked about speculation that Lopez would take over his job as host, and the presidential candidate said, “I hope he does well.”
Regardless, Lopez is very much angry with Trump for his comments, which ultimately resulted in the mogul losing a number of TV deals and sponsorships, and had his crowd in Phoenix riled up enough to shout “f*ck that puto.” Check out the video below and tell us what you think.
