In a new clip circulating online, the comedian looks irritated by fans for interrupting him during his stand-up show at a casino in California before he storms off the stage.

AceShowbiz - George Lopez had warned audience before he walked out of his stand-up show. A new video has shined light on the moment that led to the comedian storming off the stage at Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, California on June 7.

In the clip obtained and published by TMZ on Sunday, June 9, the 63-year-old was visibly irritated by fans who heckled him during his performance. He paused his show several times because of the distraction and asked them to let him do his job to deliver the jokes.

"Are we gonna be able to let me do a show? So I just put it right now," George said, which fell on deaf ears as the fans continued to heckle him. "I seem like an a**hole, I'm the one working," he added, sounding serious.

"So listen, f**king waiting to come back over here. Come on, please just f**king watch the show. That's all you to do. Just relax, having fun in the city," he begged the audience. After another of the audience members interrupted him, the funnyman had had enough and walked out of the show, prompting audible boo from the audience.

According to previous reports, George was 30 minutes before the scheduled end of his set when he abruptly ended the sold-out show. The Eagle Mountain Casino, which boasts a capacity of 2,000 people, expressed their dissatisfaction in a Facebook post, stating, "Tonight George Lopez let down his fans and sold out audience by walking out and ending his show 30 minutes early."

The casino added that George had his private security team in place who could have "easily escorted any hecklers out." They also mentioned that a pre-show meeting had taken place to devise a plan in case of interruptions.

Others suggested that the interruptions were not from hecklers but from fans showing support. One individual commented, "It was not like he had 100 people heckling him. Maybe like 4. All it was was people yelling we love you and making references to old jokes. Nothing bad in my opinion happened tonight for George Lopez to walk out!!" Another user echoed this sentiment, adding, " 'Can I buy you a drink' is all she said to you."

In his defense, George said via his spokesperson, "It's the venue or casino's job to provide a good experience for both the artist and the fans, but the casino failed in this regard. The audience was overserved and unruly, and the casino staff was unable to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for the artist and guests."

"George's personal security team worked with the venue security staff to maintain order, ensure safety, and eject disruptive individuals," the spokesperson added. "Unfortunately, the casino security team was not adequate to accomplish this task. George is not obligated to perform in an unsafe environment. He feels badly that those who came to see the show were unable to do so as a result."
