Can't we all just get along??
In the midst of an HBO stand-up special on Saturday, professional funny man George Lopez switched gears from joke-teller to irate political activist!
He went on a tirade about Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio — remember him?
George started off with a few jokes at Joe's expense, but quickly devolved into a "get off my lawn!" type monologue… or soliloquy — we can never remember the difference.
"Sheriff Joe in Arizona, f**k you, you f**king puto. How about that? F**k you. You fat motherf**ker. F**k you."
Them there are fighting words!
Believe it or not, the 80-year-old law enforcement officer had a good response. He said:
"I was surprised at the language. It was pretty nasty… Get some guys, come down here and meet me face to face. Let's see how you act then."
Whoa! Sounds like somebody is up to the challenge!
Sheriff Joe continued:
"Now let's see if he has the guts to meet me and I'll be happy to take him to a Mexican lunch."
Both sides are pissed, both sides are taking cheap shots, Sheriff Joe is even being vaguely racist…
This feud has "celebrity boxing" written all over it!!
