George Lopez, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, sparked outrage by pretending to urinate on his Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
The 57-year-old was not actually peeing; instead, he was squeezing a small water bottle outward from his crotch region. Some observers wonder if the gesture was not just a sign of his disrespect for POTUS, but also a reference to the supposed tape of Trump getting peed on. (ICYMI, reports of the Kremlin possessing a tape of Trump paying prostitutes to pee on him at the Ritz Carlton in 2013 were leaked in the run-up to the presidential election).
Their beef goes way back to when he was in talks to replace Trump on Celebrity Apprentice. The role ended up going to Arnold Schwarzenegger. In October of 2017, Lopez reportedly offended a crowd at a charity gala by cracking jokes about Trump.
While some on social media thought his stunt was "hilarious," other bemoaned his "lack of respect."
