George Lopez Jokes

I was Fired 'Because I'm Brown'

8/11/2011 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Lopez
George Lopez wasn't afraid to talk about his show getting canceled on "Lopez Tonight" yesterday -- but he told the crowd that he was being fired because of the color of his skin.

Lopez -- whose voice was featured in the "Smurfs" movie -- was talking about how Sony has greenlit a "Smurfs" sequel during his monologue ... and quipped, "So today I lost some work because I'm brown, but I got some work because I'm blue!"

Is Lopez REALLY blaming race ... or was he just trying to crack a bad joke?

Surely he was not serious. As much money as he has made, he cannot play the race card and truly believe that. I am surprised he has gotten as far as he has, his sitcom was HORRIBLE. The lady who played his mother was a HORRIBLE actress.

If no one is watching, you get CANCELED!!! I've no*****ched it once! Then again I haven'*****ched ANY of the late night shows. Then again I have to be at work at 5AM, so no late night for me anyway. Still I don't think of TBS for Late night talk shows! I'd guess the other will also get canceled at some point in time also.

George. PLEASE don't play the race card with this one. The show was unequivocally painful to watch.

I thought I was the only one that thought he wasn't funny. I am so glad to know that others feel the same. I have never thought he was funny. He is actually very disappointing.

Hopefully it was just a bad joke. Kinda tired of the race card garbage many use. Shows get cancelled all the time

He's an idiot. I'm not surprised he pulled the race card.

After what he did to his wife after she gave him LIFE by donating one of her kidneys, I've lost all respect for the man. I'm sure I'm not alone. good riddance to rubbish.

He always pulls this crap. His talk show was canceled because it was crappy. He said the same thing when the George Lopez show was canceled.
