“Was it Will Smith? – NBC Chicago

Late Tuesday night, a man rushed onto the stage and tackled Dave Chappelle during his act at Netflix’s Is a Joke: The Festival in Los Angeles.

According to NBC Los Angeles, the attacker – who has been identified as 23-year-old Isaiah Lee – was arrested by security and taken to hospital with superficial injuries, and Chappelle was not injured in the attack. .

After the attack, comedian Chris Rock joined Chappelle on stage and took the microphone and said, “Was that Will Smith?” before the crowd burst into laughter. Rock was referring to the infamous Oscars slap that took place in March, but he still hasn’t addressed himself directly in public.

Rock was present at the show as he also performed at the event earlier in the evening, which runs from April 28 to May 8. Rock is currently on his Ego Death World Tour. After the slap at the Oscars, his first evening on tour ended.

The suspect who attacked Chappelle was armed with a replica gun, which looks like a gun, but is actually a knife. Chappelle has yet to speak publicly about the attack. Her previous Netflix special “The Closer” received backlash for jokes about the transgender community, but the motive for the attack is unclear.
