Lauren Boebert apologizes for groping her boyfriend in public theater: ‘There’s no perfect blueprint for going through a divorce’

After being booted from a performance of the musical “Beetlejuice” in a Denver theater for vaping and fondling her boyfriend, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert said the ordeal was “difficult and humbling,” The Guardian reported.

The video shows Boebert blowing vape smoke onto theater attendees who were sitting in front of her. She then can be seen diving her hand into a male companion’s crotch while he fondled her breasts during the performance.

A pregnant woman reportedly confronted Boebert and asked her to stop vaping, the New York Post reported. But Boebert refused.

“These people in front of us were outrageous,” the unnamed woman told the Post. “I’ve never seen anyone act like that before.”

After the initial news broke that she was booted from the theater, Boebert denied the accusations and said she was only removed for being too loud. After the security video emerged, her tune has changed.

“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver has brought to the community,” Boebert said Friday.

She said her actions and words weren’t “intended to be malicious or meant to cause harm,” but that “the reality is they did and I regret that.”

She went to mention her recent split with her husband, Jayson. She has filed for divorce, but it has not bee finalized

“There’s no perfect blueprint for going through a public and difficult divorce, which over the past few months has made for a challenging personal time for me and my entire family,” Boebert said. “I’ve tried to handle it with strength and grace as best I can, but I simply fell short of my values on Sunday. That’s unacceptable and I’m sorry.”
