George Lopez recently took to social media to give his suggestion on how to make America safer.
Spoiler alert: It’s Hollywood liberal level stupid.
From Fox News:
George Lopez has a message for President Trump: “Deport the police.”
The comedian wrote on Instagram, “The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer… You wanna make the streets safer deport the police.”
He added, “This is not an indictment of all Law Enforcement, some still just beat you.”
After the message went up, Lopez faced backlash and has since made his account private.
Some fans felt his statement on Friday was “irresponsible” and suggested Lopez “stick to comedy.”
“This is a very irresponsible comment bro. You have really disappointed me bro, I thought you were better than that,” one commenter wrote, according to Breitbart.
The power of celebrity isn’t what it used to be.
For years some conservatives have been saying that pandering to the Latino vote through policies such as amnesty or even just a path to legalization should be rejected because Latino opinion isn’t a monolith and not all agree with the leftist/La Raza political point of view. A great example of this is below:
Another said, according to the site, “Not cool @georgelopez. I’m Latina and I’ve been pulled over more than enough times for speeding. All but one cop were nice and respectful.”
This one, per the Fox news report is probably the best one (the emphasis in bold is mine):
One more commenter said, “I realize there are some bad apples in the bunch but your statement puts all cops in the bad bunch category. Please stick to comedy. You’re not that funny when you bring politics into your posts.”
Here’s a taste of some of the other pushback Lopez got for his idiocy. Note some of it is from people who are self-described Hispanics.
Celebrities are citizens too, so nobody should take issue with their having opinions and being willing to share them, but can they at least be a little more intelligent than the average uninformed internet troll?
I’m sure he got a lot of attaboys, but it’s nice to see there was pushback from normal, sensible people.
