Man Charged Over On-Stage Attack With Replica Gun And Knife, Says Dave Chappelle:
After an on-stage attack on US comedian Dave Chappelle, a man has been charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon. A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) stated the suspect pointed an imitation firearm with a knife blade at Chappelle. The culprit was brought to a local hospital for medical treatment, but Chappelle was unhurt.
Chappelle Was Performing At The Hollywood Bowl At The Time Of The Incident.
Someone charged toward the star during his set at the Netflix Is A Joke Festival on Tuesday, according to social media clips. “A famous comedian was performing at the Hollywood Bowl, and as he concluded his act, a male jumped on the stage and tackled the celebrity,” an LAPD spokesman stated. The suspect brandished a handgun facsimile and pointed it at the victim.
He was apprehended and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.” The suspect has been named as Isaiah Lee, 23, who is being held in jail on a $30,000 (£24,000) bond. When his Netflix special was accused of being transphobic last year, Chappelle faced backlash and protests.
When his Netflix special was accused of being transphobic last year, Chappelle faced backlash and protests. The 48-year-old appeared to make light of the situation after returning to the stage on Tuesday, telling the audience that the attacker “was a trans man.”
According to ABC writer Stephanie Wash, Chappelle was joined on stage by fellow comedian Chris Rock, who was smacked on stage by Will Smith at the Oscars in March. Carpenter told the PA news agency that an assailant leaped at him as he was performing as the event’s headliner, sending him “flying in the air.”
“It Appeared Like Someone Was Dashing Across The Stage From The Side,” She Explained.
His arms and legs were up in the air as he fell backward on his back. He appeared to be stunned. We were all stunned. “I paused for a second.” Is this a joke, or what? Because they had joked about Will Smith. Even with Chris Rock present, Dave was cracking jokes, so it was all fair game, right?”
‘Unfortunate And Uncomfortable’
“Whenever you’re in danger, Jamie Foxx will show up in a sheriff’s cap,” Chappelle said in one video, praising his famous buddies for assisting him. Foxx said, “I assumed that was part of the entertainment.”
“I’ve been doing this for 35 years,” Chappelle quipped. Backstage, I just stomped a [person]. That’s something I’ve always wanted to do.” “As terrible and frightening as the situation was, Chappelle went on with the concert, crediting Rock and Foxx with helping to “quiet the crowd,” according to Chappelle’s spokesperson, Carla Sims.
