Calls for comedian George Lopez’s arrest were posted on social media after he apparently joked about an $80 million bounty on President Donald Trump’s head.

A eulogist at the Sunday funeral of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a Trump-ordered airstrike on Friday, reportedly proposed the $80 million bounty: “We are 80 million Iranians. If each one of us puts aside one American dollar, we will have 80 million American dollars, and we will reward anyone who brings us (Trump’s) head with that amount,” the unidentified man said.

Commenting on an Instagram post, Lopez wrote, “We’ll do it for half.”

By Monday morning, #ArrestGeorgeLopez was trending on Twitter and some were calling for the Latino comic to be deported, perhaps unaware he was born in Los Angeles.

“George Lopez just said he’d assassinate President Trump for half of the $80 million dollar bounty. @SecretService should take a look at this,” tweeted Ryan Fournier, founder of Students for Trump.

Turning Point USA Chairman Charlie Kirk tweeted, “…the FBI and Secret Service should IMMEDIATELY arrest George Lopez for threatening to murder Trump in exchange for $40 million!”

It was not the first time a celebrity has gotten into hot water for making remarks about taking a president’s life.

Rocker Ted Nugent stated in 2007 that then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama should “suck my machine gun.” When President Obama was running for reelection in 2012, Nugent said at a National Rifle Association convention that, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

The Secret Service paid a call on Nugent in response to his comments.

However, three months after taking office in 2017, Trump extended a White House invitation to Nugent.

    He is a joke and what he said was not a joke he just said that to keep his wet back ass from going to jail.

  • SusieQ2002 says:

    Really, none of this is amusing let alone funny. It is an act of treason to threaten the life of a duly elected President of the United States. It is an act of Terrorism to threaten another person on line or in person.

  • XX says:

    Joke or not,George Lopez MUST BE arrested,tried and convicted for taking up the offer to assassinate the POTUS,which IS a direct threat to his life.George’s stupid Mexican ass needs to be locked up in a supermax prison with no possibility of release.
