Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is no longer scheduled to speak at a youth summit in Texas after her behavior at a public theater.

Boebert was planned to speak at the Texas Youth Summit, which is free for people between the ages of 12 and 26 and set to be held Sept. 29-30 at a hotel in the Woodlands, near Houston. However, her name and photo have been removed from all advertisements on the event’s Instagram page after she was removed from a showing of Beetlejuice: The Musical, during which she was vaping and acted physically intimate with a man.


Other speakers still scheduled to speak at the event include Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and conservative activist Charlie Kirk.

Boebert explained she has canceled all future dates with the man she was with at the theater and that she has learned to “check party affiliations” going forward, referencing reports that her date was a registered Democrat. She also said many voters in her district are “understanding” and that the drama surrounding her date night was a part of her personal life.

“But all in all, it was mostly a lovely time, and I’ve taken responsibility for my actions,” Boebert said in a video posted online. “I’d love to know how the musical ended, and I encourage people to go and see it, but yeah, it was a great time back in the district, seeing voters.”

Boebert admitted during a television appearance on Sunday that she is known for being “a little too eccentric” and having an “animated personality.” She also issued an apology statement for her behavior in the theater.


“The past few days have been difficult and humbling,” Boebert said in a statement released on Friday. “While none of my actions or words as a private citizen that night were intended to be malicious or meant to cause harm, the reality is they did, and I regret that.”

Some have predicted that Boebert’s theater behavior could greatly affect her reelection chances in 2024, as she almost lost reelection in her district in the 2022 midterm elections. Adam Frisch, who lost to Boebert in 2022, is running as a Democrat again for the 2024 election and raised more than $2.6 million during 2023’s second fundraising quarter.
