Dave Chappelle is famous for stand-up comedy and he is also an actor. He was part of the comedy series, “Chappelle’s show”. Unfortunately, the show called quits when Chappelle quit in the middle of the filming of the third season. His recent transphobic jokes have gotten a lot of hate from all the attendees who attend his shows. The LGBTQ community is quite angry with him, which led to a very unfortunate event a few weeks ago.
The Unfortunate Assault
Dave Chappelle recently crossed the line when he joked about the LGBTQ community and homeless people. Isaiah Lee, a 23-year-old who was present at the show got offended and end up tackling Dave Chappelle. He told The New York Post in an interview, “I identify as bisexual … and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering.”
According to him, Chappelle should make more sensitive content. The video of Lee attacking Chappelle on May 3rd has already spread like a wildfire. Lee has already released a rap song concerning Chappelle. “Life with you n***as a joke,” he said in a reprise lyric.
Lee got seriously injured after the incident. His elbow was pointing forward while getting in an ambulance on his way to the hospital. Lee revealed that the ruthless security guards brutally broke his arm and gave him a couple of black eyes. “They spat on me and twisted me as if on purpose,” he said. Not only that but also even Chappelle joined in later. Lee pointed out a replica handgun which hid a knife in it. Lee denied to that saying that he had the gun but did not use it.
Attacking Dave Chappelle Cost Lee A Lot
Following the incident, Isaiah Lee seems to be losing a lot. He currently faces charges including battery and possessing a deadly weapon to hurt. However, this is the least he needs to worry about as the LA County Prosecutor has charged him with an attempt to murder.

Even though it is completely unrelated to the original incident. Lee stabbed his roommate on December 2, and the victim finally came forward and identified him after the Chappelle incident. The whole news was confirmed by LA County DA George Gascón.
Currently, Lee’s jail time changed from a mere six months, doing community surveys and living in transitional housing to fifteen years or more in prison. “My son [age five] will be big by the time I get out,” he said. Lee pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder case.
Even though he denied the fact he is mentally unfit, his attorney confirmed him getting treatment.
