Sheriff Joe Arpaio had about an entire day to come up with a response to alleged comedian George Lopez calling him a "fat motherfucker" and "fucking puto."
And here's what Arpaio's "ghost tweeters" eventually delivered to the world.
"Go back to school. Learn to make intelligent commentary rather than dropping F bombs for a laugh."
No word on whether Lopez will need ice for that burn.
We were kind of expecting a response of "wetbacks," "Mexican bitches," or "stupid Mexicans," which the Justice Department alleges are common elements of MCSO lexicon.
Lopez had made the remarks during a special on HBO that premiered over the weekend, titled "It's Not Me: It's You."
"And while we're at it, Sheriff Joe in Arizona: fuck you, you fucking puto," Lopez said. "How about that? Fuck you. You fat mother fucker. Fuck you. I said I was going to talk some shit. Fuck you Sheriff Joe you fucking puto. Fuck you."
Arpaio also found a news camera (ABC 15), and said he was very upset about Lopez's usage of "the 'F' word."
