( – On Sunday, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., was removed from a ‘Beetlejuice’ performance for reportedly causing a disturbance by vaping, recording, laughing, and singing.

The Denver Post noted that during the performance of the show in the Buell Theatre, owner of the City of Denver, two patrons were removed from the venue after being given multiple warnings during the show’s intermission. There were also three complaints made about them from other patrons.

Security reportedly received another complaint from one of the attendees around five minutes into the show’s second act about the two patrons recording. Recordings are explicitly prohibited during shows. One of the users reportedly said that the two patrons had stated that they would not leave the theater after being requested to do so. He added that they were then informed that if they didn’t leave it would be considered trespassing, but still, the two refused to leave.

The usher then told them that he would need to call the Denver Police to which the patrons said that they should go “get them.”

The second patron had not been identified in the report, but Boebert posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that she had indeed been singing and laughing during the show and that she was “guilty.” She added that everyone should go see the show if they have the chance and that they should let her know how the show ends.

Drew Sexton, Boebert’s campaign manager denied the claims that she was vaping but stated that the Representative had indeed taken a photo with her phone as she had not known it was not permitted.
