George Lopez reportedly was booed at a charity event in Denver after making jokes that slammed President Donald Trump.

It happened at the Carousel Ball last week during a gala for juvenile diabetes, Page Six reported Saturday. The 56-year-old comedian went political when the crowd made it clear they weren’t interested.

According to a person at the event, the CEO of Liberty Media, Greg Maffei, asked Lopez “nicely to stop making Trump jokes … George doesn’t, continues, gets booed.”

“Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men,” Lopez responded to the request.

Video posted Saturday on YouTube shows the comedian apologizing for “bringing politics to an event.” Then slams the audience for their “white privilege.”

“Listen, it’s about the kids,” he added. “I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America–it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege, but yes I’m sorry. If I was a minority in Denver I would be upset too.”

Lopez then fumbles around on stage to figure out what comes up next, before talking about a video about childhood diabetes.

After introducing the video segment, the comedian reportedly didn’t return to the stage.
