( – Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., has issued an apology following the recent incident that led to her being removed from a production of “Beetlejuice” in Denver theater for being disruptive. On Sunday, September 10, Boebert was removed from the theater along with her male companion after reportedly refusing to heed warnings.

According to reports, Boebert was kicked out for causing a disturbance by vaping, as well as singing and recording the performance. Later, video was also posted online from the performance which showed Boebert vaping while seated in the theater, while other footage showed her and her companion touching one another inappropriately. Her campaign previously denied the allegations that she had been vaping. Following the surveillance video’s release, Boebert issued an apology on Facebook.

On September 15, Boebert noted in the Facebook post that she had received “unwanted attention” over her appearance at the venue, and insisted that she had not intended to “cause harm” or be “malicious.” She added that her experience following the incident has been “difficult and humbling” and that her actions that night as a private citizen had caused harm regardless of her intention. She added that she regretted the incident.

Boebert added that there was “no perfect blueprint” about how to go through a difficult divorce publicly and that this is a challenging time for both her and her family. She added that on Sunday her values had fallen short and that this was “unacceptable.”

She proceeded to assert that she could not recall vaping during the performance, and that when talking with her team about the incident, she had just relayed her enthusiasm about the show.
