Look out Donald Trump, there's a certain Mexican-American who might be taking your job—and isn't doing it quietly.

George Lopez, who Page Six reported was in talks to take over Celebrity Apprentice from Trump (The Wrap says there is no truth to that report), performed in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday night. During his stand-up set, Lopez led the crowd in a chant of "Fuck that puto," aimed at the Republican candidate. Lopez has been an outspoken critic of Trump ever since he accused the Mexican government of sending criminals and rapists across the border.

"This country is better with Latinos in it," Lopez says before and after the call-and-response chanting.

Also on Saturday, Trump found himself losing a few more Arizona fans after he called out Senator John McCain's war record, saying he preferred "people that weren't captured."
