Lauren Boebert theater video
On September 13, 2023, surveillance video from a performing arts theater in Denver showed Republican Rep.
Boebert being escorted out of the musical “Beetlejuice” for disruptive behavior.
The video showed Boebert vaping and behaving disruptively with her companion in the theater.
Boebert initially denied vaping during the performance, but later apologized after the video emerged.
Social media users have sparked a new theory relating to the CCTV footage of Boebert, suggesting that the incident was a Democrat “setup”.
However, there is no evidence to support this theory.
Boebert apologized for her behavior, blaming it on her pending divorce.
She apologized again a few days later, saying her actions “simply fell short” of her values.
