George Lopez got into a physical altercation with a man who reportedly was harassing him with pro-Trump rhetoric at a Hooters in New Mexico.
The comedian was in Las Cruces Sunday to film the upcoming faith-based movie “Walking with Herb” when TMZ, which obtained video of the incident, reported that the unidentified man started hectoring him with comments about his politics and yelling “MAGA.”
In the video, the man appeared to be lying in wait inside the Hooters when Lopez walked up.
“Here comes my boy, George,” he said.
Lopez wasted no time getting physical with the man, having apparently had it with his alleged antics. The 57-year-old snatched the phone out of his hand and briefly could be seen grabbing him by the back of the neck.
A rep for Lopez did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
“George wants to fight me, George wants to fight me!” the man repeated in the video.
In an interview with TMZ following the incident, the unidentified man explained that it all started when he went up to Lopez to ask for a photo. He claimed Lopez then grabbed his phone, but eventually gave it back. As a result, the individual, who noted he was a Democrat, claimed he wanted to ease the situation -- so he said, "On the count of 3 say Make America Great Again," as a joke.
The comedian has been very vocal in the past about his distaste for the president and his administration. Recently, he filmed a video in which he used a water bottle to simulate urinating on Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Last year, he reportedly was booed off the stage at a charity event for his continued jokes about the president.
