A man rushed the stage during a performance and confronted Dave Chappelle. He was quickly caught and found carrying a fake pistol with a knife attached. The man who allegedly assaulted Dave Chappelle at a recent comedy show said that his reaction to Will Smiths'' Oscar slap was inspired.
Isaiah Lee was named the guy who tackled the comedian during his Netflix Is A Joke series at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month. Lee recently told The New York Post in an interview that the frightening Oscars episode had enthralled him.
In March, Smith took to stage during the live coverage of the Academy Awards in response to a Chris Rock joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Lee branded the comments tasteless. He even praised Smith for standing up for his wife from the Los Angeles Correctional Facility.
Im not going to say it was a bit of clout-chasing. In Hollywood, you know they claim there is no such thing as bad publicity. I rap about these things in my music and knew it would get attention.
Lee was charged with battery, assault with a lethal weapon, unlawful access to the stage area during a performance, and commission of an act that delays or interferes with the actor. Check out the video below.
