Comedian Dave Chappelle is said to have been attacked on stage in LA


Dave Chappelle was reportedly assaulted during an event at the Hollywood Bowl.

The 48-year-old comedian was performing Tuesday night as part of the Netflix Is A Joke festival in Los Angeles when a man stormed the stage, according to US media.

Actor Jamie Foxx joined Chappelle and helped apprehend the alleged attacker before the performance resumed, reports say.

Video posted on social media appeared to show a man with a badly injured arm being taken to an ambulance.

Chappelle previously faced backlash over comments about transgender people on his Netflix comedy special The Closer.

The comedian said “gender is a fact” and shared his support for JK Rowling, who has also been criticized for her comments about the concept of biological sex.

Netflix employees are said to have reacted with anger to his comments and have reportedly organized a strike over the streaming giant’s decision to air the special.

The incident follows Will Smith punching Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars over a joke the comic made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

It prompted members of the comedy community, including Jack Whitehall and Kathy Griffin, to voice their fears that performers are no longer safe on stage.
