Dave Chappelle is attacked on stage in LA


Dave Chappelle is attacked on stage in LA after woke activists tried to cancel him for jokes about trans people

Dave Chappelle was last night attacked on stage while filming a Netflix special in Los Angeles. 

Jamie Foxx, who was watching the show from the wings of the Hollywood Bowl, rushed on stage along with security to detain the attacker. 

Video from the Netflix Is A Joke event shows a man charging on to the stage and tackling the comedian before he is dragged off by security. 

Chappelle then jokes ‘It was a trans man’.

It follows controversy in America over his trans jokes which saw a protest staged by Netflix staff, and comes weeks after Will Smith attacked Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars. 

Footage later appears to show the attacker being treated by paramedics for an injured arm. 

The event was the first ever live Netflix comedy festival.
