Sharing is caring!

Assaulted by a 23-year-old young man while performing on stage in Hollywood, we know more about the assailant who attacked Dave Chappelle…

During a stand-up show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles this Tuesday, April 3, as part of the Netflix Is A Joke festival , Dave Chappelle, then in full performance, was attacked by an individual who thrown at him, on stage around 10:45 p.m., before being subdued by the security service. More fear than harm for the comedian who resumed the course of his sketch, joined by Jamie Foxx or even Chris Rock , present in the room, who came to support him. The latter even allowed himself a small reference to his own aggression by Will Smith who had slapped him at the Oscars 2022: “ Will, is that you?”.However, as with the Oscars, some like Jamie Foxx initially believed the sequence was part of the show. Later, while the assailant injured in the arm was evacuated by the emergency services, we learned that in the 1st row were installed Jay-Z and Beyoncé, but also Elon Musk. They had joined the audience after spending time with Dave Chappelle backstage, along with Rihanna, A$AP Rocky , Busta Rhymes and Madonna, who did not join the audience to see the show. Witnesses then wondered about the safety of personalities like Queen Bee and her husband, or the boss of Tesla, in this kind of rooms, especially since some thought they saw that the attacker was carrying a weapon (or a weapon dummy)…

 

Sued…

And as rumors swirl that Busta Rhymes and Jamie Foxx personally handled the attacker’s case behind the scenes, his identity has been revealed. It is 23-year-old Isaiah Lee, who faces 4 misdemeanor counts , as Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer announced in a video posted Thursday on Twitter. . “What should have been a fun night at the Hollywood Bowl last Tuesday night was suddenly cut short when suspect Isaiah Lee seemingly charged onto the stage attacking comedian Dave Chappelle. […] The suspect would have carried a weapon…”He is charged with: assault and battery, possession of a weapon with intent to commit assault, unauthorized access to a stage space during a performance and commission of an act that delays an event and/or interferes with a performer. . For this many observers, he would have acted in reaction to Dave Chappelle’s sketches on the LGBT community , while his older brother, Aaron, told Rolling Stone magazine that he did not know what had motivated Isaiah’s gesture: “He didn’t has no animosity towards Chappelle to my knowledge…” The prosecutor concluded his message to him by explaining that he takes the “protection of public safety very seriously” and promised to “prosecute vigorously”the case.
