But after his standup show in Phoenix last night, some fans are saying he crossed the line with one of his jokes. Here’s what he said as part of his standup:

“There are only two rules in the Latino family. Don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.”

For the most part, the audience responded well, except for one woman who, according to TMZ, stood up and gave Lopez the middle finger:


Lopez then retaliated saying:

“Sit your fucking ass down. Sit your fucking ass down. Sit your fucking ass down. I’m talking bitch, sit your fucking ass down. You paid to see a show, see your ass down. You can’t take a joke you’re in the wrong mother fucking place. If you can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong place. So sit your fucking ass down or get the fuck out of here…”

And continued: “I got two choices: Shut the fuck up or get the fuck out. I’ll tell you what, I’ll make the choice for you: get the fuck out of her.”

The woman, and her friends, finally decide to get up leave, to which Lopez responded by telling the audience: “Four seats just opened up front.”

Of course, people turned to Twitter to sound off:


Some aren’t going to let his comments affect them:


While others might not entirely disagree with him:


As for Lopez, he’s shown no signs of regret as of this morning:

One Chicana’s Mission To Find The People Behind This Classic Oldies Compilation

For the past two years, 29-year-old Melissa “Lil Smiley” Dueñas has searched for the stories behind the iconic 12-volume vinyl record set titled “East Side Story,” which is a compilation of classic Chicano lowrider jams from the 70s and 80s.



The record set, with a cover featuring red and green borders on a white background, is revered for its compilation of lowrider classics of R&B, doo-wop and soul. The cover photos also show an intimate snapshot of 1970s Eastside Los Angeles Chicano/a culture.




Yet, what remained a mystery to Dueñas were the people in the compilation’s album art: Chicano/a youth and their classic cars. Nameless, but for sure, firme.



Dueñas started her @eastsidestoryproject Instagram account in 2015 as a way to update the journey as she searched for these people, but also as a way to crowdsource leads on their identityThe project led her to meet Mr. B, the creator of the actual vinyl series.




She also met OGs who posed in the photos, and friends and family that knew them.




“It kind of affirms who they are,” she says. “When people see the East Side Story Instagram, they get excited because it really holds a fond place in their hearts. It’s become this place for this collective narrative to really unfold.”



The East Side Story Project successfully made its Kickstarter campaign goal last year to continue the story through an upcoming documentary web series. In the meantime, Dueñas shares her love for lowrider classics on her Sunday online radio show.
