By now, I’m sure many, if not all, of us have seen the recent headline of Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert being kicked out of a Broadway performance of Beetlejuice. And after that, security footage showed Boebert vaping and fondling beau Quinn Gallagher in the theater. In light of these events, Boebert has officially been removed from the Texas Youth Summit’s speakers list.
After being invited to speak at the upcoming Texas Youth Summit, it became clear that there were issues with Representative Boebert’s past behavior when she attended a Denver performance of Beetlejuice the musical.
After it happened, they deleted their posts regarding her involvement with the summit–including one about VIP reception–and replaced them without mentioning or including any images of her.
Requests for comments from the founder of Texas Youth Summit, Christian Collins, have gone unanswered.

Security footage showed her vaping during the show as well as touching Gallagher inappropriately.
The event organizers had no choice but to remove her from their lineup; other social media posts regarding her attendance were also deleted or altered after news spread about what happened.
Drew Sexton, Boebert’s campaign manager released a statement denying that she had been vaping during Beetlejuice; he claimed that it had merely been a misunderstanding due to heavy fog machines and electronic cigarettes used for special effects during the play itself.
He went on to confirm that photography was not allowed in the theatre which may have led to some confusion on Boebert’s part.
Faced with surveillance footage showing otherwise however, Rep. Lauren Boebert finally issued an apology admitting that she had indeed been vaping at Beetlejuice.
She claims it was due to overwhelming emotions caused by divorce proceedings within her family, stating “The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry.”
We can only hope that our beloved representative has learned from this experience and will make better decisions moving forward.
