Security footage reveals that U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert was escorted out of a theater in Denver during a “Beetlejuice” performance on Sunday. While the theater did not explicitly identify Boebert, a spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday that the footage depicted guests who were removed after complaints from the audience. These complaints included accusations of vaping, singing, phone usage, and causing a general disturbance.

Boebert’s campaign manager, Drew Sexton, confirmed her removal from the theater but contested the claim that she was vaping. Sexton conveyed via text message that Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a supporter of the performing arts and acknowledged that she was indeed singing and enjoying the performance.

Representative Boebert, currently in her second term in Congress, is seeking reelection in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which primarily encompasses the western region of the state. The incident at the theater was initially reported by The Denver Post.

Boebert has gained significant national attention since her tenure in Washington began, notable for her confrontational style. She gained particular media attention for her disruption of President Joe Biden’s 2022 State of the Union address.

During the theater incident, comments such as “do you know who I am” and “I will be contacting the mayor” were reportedly made by the two individuals, as per the venue’s statement.

On the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, now referred to as X, Boebert recommended the show to her followers, asking them to inform her of how it concludes.

According to the theater’s official statement, the two guests initially refused to vacate the venue, prompting an employee to threaten police involvement. The two eventually departed the premises when informed that a police officer was en route. Security footage obtained by The Big Big News does not substantiate the claim that Boebert was vaping.

first it was the State of the Union, now this? Boebert sure knows how to keep herself in the news.

PoliticalJunkie September 14, 2023 - 6:55 am

Well, this is sure to be a talking point for her opponents in the upcoming election. Can’t say it doesn’t make for a juicy headline though.

CryptoQueen September 14, 2023 - 7:28 am

So she supports the arts but can’t follow simple theater etiquette? Cmon, vaping and singing during a performance is just disrespectful.

JohnDoe42 September 14, 2023 - 8:23 am

Wow, can’t believe Boebert got kicked out. Wonder how this’ll affect her re-election campaign. Politics and theaters mixing, what a time to be alive!

FinanceGuru September 14, 2023 - 8:59 am

No matter your politics, you got to admit, this is bad PR for someone running for reelection. And in her second term already? Ouch.

GreenActivist September 14, 2023 - 10:27 am

vaping in a public space, especially indoors? If it’s true, that’s just irresponsible given the current health concerns.

TechSavvy September 14, 2023 - 2:53 pm

So Twitter is now called X? When did that happen? Kinda overshadowed by Boebert’s escapade, but still.

CarFanatic September 14, 2023 - 7:43 pm

If the security footage doesn’t show her vaping, why is she being accused of it? Seems like a media spin to me.
