A woman sitting behind Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) at a Denver theater on Sunday described the representative’s “outrageous” behavior before she was thrown out of the venue.
According to local news outlets, the extremist lawmaker was forced to leave the touring production of “Beetlejuice” after several other attendees complained of disruptive behavior.
Surveillance footage shows her and a female companion being escorted out of the Buell Theater.
A pregnant woman who said she was sitting directly behind Boebert and reportedly provided evidence that she did so, told the Denver Post: “These people in front of us were rude. I’ve never seen anyone act like that.”
The woman, who said she didn’t recognize Boebert, told the Post she asked lawmakers to stop vaping, but the congresswoman simply said “no.”
She said Boebert sang along loudly with his hands up and recorded several long videos during the first half of the performance.
The woman filed a complaint during the break. As she returned to her seat with her husband, Boebert called her a “sad and miserable person,” she said.
Theater officials said the Colorado Sun On Monday, two guests were escorted out of Sunday’s show after talking loudly, vaping and using cameras during the performance. They were warned at intermission, but continued to behave this way in the second act, leading to their removal.
Boebert’s camp had admitted that Boebert was taking photos but denied reports that she was vaping, according to the Sun.
“I can confirm the astonishing and salacious rumors: In her free time, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is, in fact, a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!),” Drew Sexton, Boebert’s campaign manager, said in a statement to the Sun.
“She appreciates the Buell Theater’s strict enforcement of the no-photo policy and only wishes that the Biden administration could enforce our border laws just as thoroughly and vigorously.”
Boebert’s congressional office did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
