Lauren Boebert's Unforgettable Night at the Beetlejuice Musical: A Tale of Vaporization and Excitement
Lauren Boebert, a Republican congresswoman, is known for her disruptive and confrontational approach in politics.
On September 10, 2023, Boebert attended a traveling stage performance of the Beetlejuice musical in Denver.
She attended the show with a reportedly Democratic-leaning Denver bar owner, and they initially had a great time.
However, fellow theatergoers began to complain about Boebert's vaping and overall loud behavior during the musical.
Surveillance footage captured Boebert and her companion engaging in some inappropriate behavior, which further fueled the controversy.
As they were asked to leave the show, Boebert reportedly mentioned, "Do you know who I am?" and claimed, "I am on the board," and "I will be contacting the mayor."
Initially, Boebert defended herself by suggesting she was kicked out for enjoying the musical too much, tweeting, "I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!"
Video evidence contradicted her claims, showing Boebert vaping and engaging in inappropriate behavior during the performance.
A pregnant woman behind Boebert even asked her to stop vaping, but she continued.
Boebert had to backtrack on her initial denial of the vaping incident when confronted with video proof.
She attributed her behavior to the excitement of seeing the much-anticipated production and the "natural anxiety of being in a new environment."
Boebert mentioned her eccentric and animated personality and admitted she was having a fantastic time.
She acknowledged that she was asked to tone down her behavior, which she did briefly, but then she made another mistake by taking a picture.
The incident highlights the unpredictability of public figures and their moments of forgetfulness.
Boebert's night at the Beetlejuice musical serves as a reminder that even public figures can sometimes get carried away by the excitement of an event, leading to unexpected and humorous situations.
