Lopez Lowballs With Assassination Joke

January 6th, 2019 – George Lopez caused quite a bit of controversy this morning after making a joke about taking up an alleged bounty on Donald Trump. The comedian has long been a critic of the president, but the assassination comedy is a new form.

An Instagram account called Chicano Worldstar posted an unverified claim last night saying that Iranian authorities offered an $80 million reward for Trump’s “head” during a eulogy for Gen. Qasem Soleimani. Lopez commented on the post saying “We’ll do it for half.”

Soleimani, a top Iranian military leader, was assassinated during an airstrike in Baghdad this week at the direction of President Trump.

By morning, his short reply had gained traction and Lopez’s name, along with “arrest George Lopez,” “Ted Nugent,” and “secret service” began trending on Twitter. While most people haven’t praised the joke, many did call out the hypocrisy of conservatives who were angered by Lopez but unfazed when Ted Nugent told Barack Obama to “suck on my machine gun.”

People also called out the specific hypocrisy from those who defend Trump’s attack on other people as him simply being funny.

Still, defenders of the president (such as the super serious duo of Diamond and Silk) are taking the bounty joke seriously and calling for Lopez to apologize and be investigated by the secret service the same way Nugent was back in 2012.

Lopez hasn’t addressed the controversy directly but his representatives told Fox News that the reply was “a joke.” As of this posting, the comment has received nearly 3,000 likes on Instagram and almost 1,000 replies.
