‘That was a trans man’

The deal with was apparently not the one low cost shot that night time.

Comic Dave Chapelle has discovered himself in scorching water with LGBTQ+ critics but once more after joking that it was a “trans man” who attacked him on stage throughout the now-viral assault Wednesday.

The 48-year-old “Chappelle’s Present” creator had been performing on the “Netflix is a Joke” competition in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, when an unnamed spectator bum-rushed the stage and tackled the comic to the bottom, as seen in shocking footage. The assailant —  Isaiah Lee, 23, of Los Angeles — was subsequently faraway from the venue by safety, whereupon he was arrested by the LAPD and brought to an area hospital for minor accidents. It was later revealed that Lee has been booked for felony assault with a lethal weapon.

Officer Lizeth Lomeli, a spokesperson for the LAPD, confirmed to The Submit that the suspect was arrested for assault with a lethal weapon and the suspect, whose identify is not going to be launched till he’s discharged from the native hospital, was carrying a duplicate handgun that had a blade inside.
