On Monday, Fox News reported that comedian George Lopez has a simple message for President Donald Trump: Deport the police.
“The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer… You wanna make the streets safer deport the police,” he wrote on Instagram. “This is not an indictment of all Law Enforcement, some still just beat you,” he added in the comment section of his post.
Apparently, the message didn’t sit too well with many, as Lopez made his account private after receiving a great deal of backlash.
“This is a very irresponsible comment bro. You have really disappointed me bro, I thought you were better than that,” one person said in response, according to Breitbart.com.
Here’s a screenshot of the image he posted, which was archived and can be seen here:
The Instagram caption caused outrage among many of the comedian’s fans.
“This is a very irresponsible comment bro. You have really disappointed me bro, I thought you were better than that,” wrote one commenter, who claimed to be a police officer.
“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,” wrote another user. “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.”
Another commenter wrote, “Keep calm george…i got two brothers that are police officer ..and we are Mexican/Americans..”
“That comment is fck up many latinos who fought hard and became cops #alllivematter puto,” wrote another.
Lopez, Breitbart added, has repeatedly attacked President Trump and those who voted for him.
Last July, for example, when asked about Trump’s election odds, Lopez told TMZ that “there’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected.”
Breitbart further noted: “A couple weeks later at a show in Phoenix, Arizona, the comedian led a crowd in a chant of ‘f**k that puto.’ (Puto is Spanish slang for male whore.)”
When asked if he would give Trump a chance after the election, he responded: “I’ll give him a chance to suck my a*s.”
Lopez also took a beating on Twitter:
Didn't George Lopez promise that he was going to move to Mexico if Trump was elected? Why is he still here in the U.S.? 😠😖

Yes, he was one of the many celebrities who promised to leave, but didn’t. He told TMZ: “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back.”

One person suggested deporting stupid people:
George Lopez tells President to "deport the police" to make "streets safer". Maybe we should deport stupid people. https://t.co/IjtrYFAySO

From what we’ve seen lately, that would probably include quite a few Hollywood liberals…
Another person asked:
How many dead cops will it take till George Lopez realizes this type of anti-police rhetoric kills

Our speculation is that it really doesn’t matter…
According to Fox, a spokesperson for Lopez did not immediately return a request for comment.
