New details have emerged regarding an incident where Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert was escorted out of a performance of the “Beetlejuice” musical in downtown Denver this Sunday night for allegedly vaping, singing, recording and “causing a disturbance.”
Now The Denver Post has new details about what sparked the incident.
Rep. Lauren Boebert didn’t care if she ruined the musical “Beetlejuice” playing at the Buell Theatre for anyone else, and she certainly didn’t care if the pregnant woman sitting behind her had to breathe her second-hand smoke from a vape pen. The woman sitting directly behind Boebert shared her story with The Post on the condition of anonymity out of fear that there would be backlash from the congresswoman and her supporters.
When she asked Boebert to stop vaping, the congresswoman simply said “no,” the woman said. Boebert was also kissing the man she was with, and singing along loudly with her hands in the air, the woman said. “At intermission, I asked, ‘Are there any other seats available? Can we sit somewhere else?’” the woman said. “The usher said, ‘You’re not the first complaint we had.’ ” When the woman returned with her husband to their seats, she said Boebert called her a “sad and miserable person.”
