George Lopez: ‘If You Are An Enemy of Drag, You Are An Enemy of Mine’

Fact checked

Drag shows are “as American as apple pie,” according to George Lopez who used an appearance on ABC’s The View to declare “anyone who is an enemy of drag is an enemy of mine.”

According to Lopez, who stars in NBC family sitcom “Lopez vs Lopez” with his daughter Mayan, conservatives have turned drag into a “cultural wedge issue” when really we should all be supporting the drag community.

Lopez’s pro-drag comments sparked a backlash on Twitter with thousands of people railing against his comments.

George Lopez is not the first person to claim drag queens hold a special place in American cultural life because of all the “joy and beauty” they provide. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said drag queens are “what America is all about,” and declared it “an honor” to make a guest appearance on an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

“It was an honor to make an appearance on episode 5 of @RuPaulsDragRace All Stars 7 this week,” Pelosi said.

“I was inspired by the contestants because they know their power. Their freedom of expression is what America is all about,” Pelosi continued.

During her appearance, Pelosi told the contestants she was proud of them and thanked them “for the joy and beauty [they] bring to the world.”

“I say that all the time to my friends in drag.”

  1. why would anyone want to be associated with this sick and demented behavior,and how could someone not see the evil underlying factors and outcomes in damaging the psyche of these children

      • They’re TV shows put out by government licence .Passed by the government’s censors approved for distribution .

        • BUT still banned subject matters way past even triple xxx ratings which are also copyrighted and THAN LICENCED when and if used.XXX is also allowed for distribution and passes the censors and is approved and is a MUTI-billion dollar industry that out selsl all the G and R rated film&TV and even all prosports.HIs subject matter is the same seen since the startup f film&TV but if it is rated adult than it has to be TIME SLOTED and a adult warning placed like all adult subject matter on BIG&small sreeen.YOU GOT NOTHIN NO ONE!

  2. Why would anyone choose drag shows as their hill to die on? oh well. never understood why he had a career.

  3. If he finds joy and beauty in men in women’s clothes then that’s his prerogative .But he has no mandate to force that upon anyone else .In fact it’s a brutish bullying attitude of a self centred hedonistic type person .

    • STOCK CHARACTORS, nondescript,ingenue there are no limits.BUT to not censorship WTF you kids watch is a crime and you can loose your kids for not keeping them away from xxx!&XXX stars even don`t want anything illegal to mess up thier MUTI-billion dollar industry and for sure DON`t want any kiddie porno at all-there are limits even to WTF adults can do as far as XXX goes.SOUTHPARK goes over the limits all the time but they are FOX/CBS and do whatever they want too.NO battle to stop them form TIC TIC

  4. if a actor wants to act than let them but there is a rating system in place that is in use.To put limits on acting is censorship which is a violation of law.But on the other hand we have time slots and adult ratings in place to protect youth when the parents use the softwear adult button like they should

  5. To get a good idea of reality ,apart from what you should have learned almost 40years ago from Cathy O’Brien’s book and digested and developed and grown from , another is White House Call Girl ,which exposes the lies about the entire Watergate load of baloney they dishes up in their research’s and books and shows and school room rubbishes.
    And Arizona Wilder has told a very interesting story about her life working with Bob Hope too ,which I’ve seen confirmation of from Bob’s personal assistant ,all of which has been oiterated from the web ,btw , all nv with almost every other piece of truthful information they could find They left the bits they reasonably can expect the majority of the (naive and dumbarse )public to believe are just too wild to be true .

    • Brice Taylor ,sorry was Bob’s It’s all old stories and there’s so many names but having been in that industry when young I know it’s most likely perfectly true .

  6. Drag is not about joy and beauty. It is about some people trying to make something seem worthwhile that is actually dysfunctional.

  7. Oh no! George is my enemy!? What am I going to do? Does this mean he won’t direct any more of his racist rants my way? Does it mean he won’t come to my birthday party?
    Who gives a flying fork?
