Famed comedian George Lopez has worked tirelessly the last several decades to make a name for himself. Unfortunately, that hustle didn't prevent the Mexican-American star from being mistaken for the hired help on a recent trip.
When Lopez arranged to have a designer suit and shoes delivered to his room at the Dream Hotel in New York City last week, he received quite a shock in an awkward encounter with a hotel staffer. Apparently, they mistook Lopez, 53, for a housekeeper when they stopped by to deliver his outfit for the GQ Gentleman's Ball.
The comedian seemed to be in good humor about the mistake. "I got a Dolce & Gabbana suit and $3,000 shoes, but the struggle will continue," he told the crowd at the ball that night. "Today, at Dream hotel in room 440, [I] had a Prada suit and sport coat, $10,000, delivered to me personally... I open the door, [and] he gave me the suit and said, 'You scared me. I thought you were housekeeping.'"
The Dream Downtown had no comment about the incident.
