Mario Lopez Endorses Measure C Despite Earlier Critical Tweets

Mario Lopez seems to have had a change of heart on whether San Diego should get a new Chargers stadium.

Earlier this month, as the Bolts skidded to a 1-4 start to the season, blowing a string of fourth quarter leads, the celebrity made a snarky comment on Twitter, questioning the team’s proposal for a new home here.

“And they want a new stadium. Yeah, good luck with that,” the celebrity, who hails from Chula Vista, tweeted.

He also tweeted about the frustrations surrounding the Chargers' losing streak.

But this week, the Chargers have rolled out ads with Lopez urging voters to pass Measure C to pay for a downtown San Diego stadium.

“I think San Diego deserves a world class stadium because it’s a world class city,” Lopez says in the ad.

So what gives, Mario?

We sent him a tweet on Thursday afternoon asking him, but have not yet heard back.

Meanwhile, other celebrities have already chimed in on the topic of a newly publicly funded Chargers stadium.

Famous skateboarder Tony Hawk took part in HBO’s “Any Given Sunday” earlier this month to challenge Measure C.

“I love the Chargers. But if they go, we still have the beach, the zoo, Blink 182, Mexico, the sunshine, Nick Cannon, Comic Con and me, Tony Hawk,” he says in the video.
