Chris Rock Jokes Will Smith Is Behind Dave Chappelle Stage Att-ack – Video

A 23-year-old guy has been booked with attempting to knock down Dave Chappelle at his Hollywood Bowl show last night after taking the stage ar-med with a sharp cu-tting tool and sm-cking the comic. On a single felony charge of using a we-apon to ha-m the other, Isaiah Lee is presently being detained in the custody of the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

Bail has been set at $30,000 for him. Lee’s motivation for the att**k is unknown. Po-lice haven’t determined where he lives or if he went to the performance alone. He stormed the stage as Chappelle joked about having to beef up his security after making trans jokes at the Netflix Joke event.

According to the authorities, the offender was equipped with a revolver that concealed a dagger. It’s unknown if he was searched before entering the stadium or how he gained access to the stage. Chappelle was unhar*ed and continued the concert. Security personnel then grabbed Lee, who seemed to fracture his wrist in the ensuing scuffle. He is 5ft 11 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. It raises concerns about security at Netflix’s first-ever live comedy event, where viewers were asked to put their phones away yet the we-apon was not detected.

Netflix has yet to respond to the event.

The venue stated on its website that the concert, which was named Dave Chappelle and Friends, would be a ‘phone-free experience,’ and that attendees would be required to place their smartphones in bags. Chappelle praised Foxx on stage at the curtain call after the perpetrator was apprehended. ‘Shout out to Jamie Foxx, by the way,’ he continued. Jamie Foxx will come up in a sheriff’s hat whenever you’re in trouble.’ ‘I assumed it was part of the act, I didn’t know what the f___’ Foxx said. ‘I gripped the top of that man’s head,’ Chappelle added. His hair was greasy and mushy. Absorbent.’ ‘Listen, I just want to say, this dude is an amazing genius,’ Foxx said. We have to make sure he’s safe at all times.

‘This signifies everything to every artist that comes out here.’ You’re an absolute genius. We’re not going to allow anything to happen to you because you’re a hero, and I had a great time.’ ‘I’ve been doing this for 35 years,’ Chappelle stated. Backstage, I just crushed a n___. That’s something I’ve always wanted to accomplish.’ Following the incident, Jimmy Carr posted a photo with another comic and hailed his Los Angeles concert as “wild.” ‘The Hollywood Bowl concert with the iconic Dave Chappelle was wild,’ he tweeted. I’m just relieved that everyone is safe.’ Last year, Chappelle was chastised for making jokes about trans people in his Netflix comedy show The Closer.

During the contentious programme, he said “gender is a reality,” leading Netflix employees to object and widespread condemnation on social media over some of his gags. He also expressed his support for JK Rowling, who has been chastised for statements on biological gender. He declared in the special that he does not despise trans gender people and gives a long tale about a trans woman comic, whom he refers to as a buddy, who came to his rescue in previous dalliances with the community.

‘Every individual in this room, every human on The planet, has to travel through the legs of a woman to be on Earth,’ Chappelle said. That is a proven truth.’

Since Caitlyn Jenner received Glamour magazine’s 2015 Woman of the Year award, Chappelle quipped that women today regard trans women the same way black people could view white women wearing blackface, and commented that women are allowed to feel resentment against trans women. ‘If I were a woman, I’d be furious,’ Chappelle added. The actor also made fun of trans women’s anatomy, suggesting that they lacked true female reproductive systems and only had ‘beet juice’ for bl-ood. The statements caused Netflix to pull the show, but CEO Ted Sarandos warned employees that “material on television does not equate to real-world suffering.”

Those who have slammed Chapelle’s jokes have especially mentioned the risks that the trans community faces as a result of anti-trans rhetoric. The v-olence came only weeks after Will Smith at-acked Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars, sparking worries that similar viol*nt demonstrations against entertainers may follow. After a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-shaved Smith’s head, the actor smacked the comic on the stage. Pinkett-Smith has already spoken up about her battle with baldness. Smith returned to his seat after the sl-ap and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth!”

He went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role as Richard Williams in the film King Richard. He apologised to the Academy during his address, and he afterwards made an apology on Instagram. Rock has remained fairly silent on the subject, merely stating that he was ‘processing’ what transpired.

Members of the comedy world, including Jack Whitehall and Kathy Griffin, have expressed concerns that artists are no longer secure on stage as a result of the event. Seth Rogen, Snoop Dogg, Bill Burr, and Pete Davidson are among the major names performing at the Netflix comedy festival, which is the streaming giant’s inaugural.
