It appears George Lopez might be diversifying his portfolio.
Chicano Worldstar, a popular Instagram account posted a graphic stating: “Iran ‘offers $80 million bounty for Donald Trump’s head’ after death of general.”
The Instagram account wrote in a caption: “#Iranian authorities have put a bounty on American President Donald Trump’s head during the televised funeral of General #QasemSoleimani after he was assassinated last week. What are your thoughts?”
Megastar comic and hardrcore Anti-Trumper George Lopez responded with, “We’ll do it for half.”
No word on who “we” is, but after the post social media and political cacklers on both sides went bananas. George then followed up by clarifying that it was an obvious joke, no he is not becoming a hitman for hire, he is in the middle of a comedy tour and he’s making plenty of money.
It is not clear whether he was ever directly contacted by the Secret Service who through a spokesperson acknowledged that they were “aware” of the joke. It’s not the first time George has gotten into it over you-know-who. And it probs won’t be the last. (Hey, he is a man of serious conviction and a famous temper).
Peep the post below. And some of George’s upcoming tour dates below that. Wachale!
