God bless Dave Chappelle after an audience member took to the stage and physically assaulted
God bless Dave Chappelle after an audience member took to the stage and physically assaulted the comedian in the middle of his performance in Los Angeles while everyone was sleeping in their homes around midnight on Tuesday. There was no damage.
Security staff chased the attacker until they detained him off the stage at the Hollywood Bowl. The attacker was later taken from the venue on a stretcher with injuries to his hands and face.
The comedian appeared to lose his temper for a while, and later joked: "He was a trans man," a call back to earlier words on his set that suggested he had been attacked by transgender people, and previous material that was criticized as transphobic.
