One of El Paso’s favorite comedians.. is no longer a favorite comedian.
I’m talking about George Lopez. The Inn of the Mountain Gods announced a performance by the man on June 18, but people on Facebook had some harsh words in return.
“[I] thought this idiot was leaving the U.S. if Trump got elected,” asked Rick Henderlite in a comment thread on the Inn of the Mountain Gods Facebook page. Most of the other comments were pretty much along the same lines, some of them are Trump supporters, while others just don’t like his “filthy mouth.”
Tickets to the show went on sale on Monday. They’re $75, plus a $5 fee for general admission, VIP is $125 per seat. Inn of the Mountain Gods is located at 287 Carrizo Canyon Rd in Mescalero, New Mexico, which is about two hours from El Paso.
