Comedian George Lopez has novel ideas about how the Trump administration should approach law enforcement.

He took to Instagram on Friday, writing: "The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer…. You wanna make the streets safer deport the police." After getting blowback, he followed up the post with this: "This is not an indictment of all Law Enforcement, some still just beat you. #gacho#georgelopezonhbo #TheWall @momorodriguez #gracias."

  • One naysayer, anna_calderon3 wrote, "Wrong!!! Mad respect for Law Enforcement!!!!!" while sweetpea6318 wrote, "Not a very smart comment from a celebrity. We should all be coming together." 
  • After getting increasingly angry comments from fellow Instagrammers, he posted again on Monday.  
  • He put out a shot of the late, great band The Police with the phrase “Deport the Police” overlaying it.
  • He captioned it: “I hope this clears up any misunderstanding. Comedy has a way of healing , but I also realize it can hurt too, so let's let cooler heads prevail.”
