Stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle attacked on stage during LA show

Stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle has been attacked by a person who ran on stage at the Hollywood Bowl in LA, according to people who attended the show and footage circulating on social media.

“A man charged and tackled” Chappelle just as the show was ending, according Brianna Sacks, a reporter at the show.

She said security “rushed and started punching and kicking the s*** out of Chappelle’s attacker”.

In a clip from the audience shared on social media, Chappelle appeared to joke: “It was a trans man”.

The comedian has been criticised by some for his jokes about the trans community and there was a backlash last year against his Netflix special.
