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?

lol George, you were FIRED because your Writers Suck!
Every monologue was overly scripted with sad & lame repeated jokes.
Lets face it, you're WAY funnier on stage with your OWN material, without sensors, and without big name stars trying to help salvage your dismal ratings.
Hope to see you in your Own format again someday soon bro ;)

I've only watched his show once, and that was when Emmanuelle Chriqui was the guest. And yes...I DEFINITELY wasn't paying attention to George Lopez.

Lopez is racist. He is the spews reverse recism from deep within his soul. Besides being offensive, angry isn't funny.

It was cancelled because of ratings and he knows it. Anybody who believes he was serious when he said that is retarded.

Sorry George, you were fired because you didn't have the proper demopgraphics for that type of show. You didn't have the younger crowd that *gag* Conehead does. Face it Georgie Boy, you and this Gringo are now a minority. We are too old for the general audience TBS and other networks cater to.
