WATCH: George Lopez Gets in Brawl With Trump Supporter At Hooters
George Lopez apparently got into a tussle with a Donald Trump supporter who heckled him at a Hooters restaurant in New Mexico this week.
TMZ obtained video that the Trump supporter took on his cell phone, saying to himself “Here comes my boy George” as the comedian approached him.
Lopez asks the man “posting more bullsh*t?” before reaching for the camera.
“He’s a badass,” the man taunted. “George wants to fight me, George wants to fight me!”
It’s not clear what exactly happened since the video got really shaky, though TMZ says Lopez grabbed the back of the man’s neck at one point in the confrontation. There were no reported injuries and the cops weren’t called in connection to the incident.
A source close to Lopez told TMZ that the Trump supporter was antagonizing him all night, getting “in the comedian’s face” and making various pro-Trump comments. Lopez is a well-established Trump critic, having made his dislike of the president quite clear in the past.
