Dave Chappelle has been under constant assault from the left.
Now he’s literally being assaulted by deranged leftists.
And Chappelle’s attacker got one punishment that will leave you speechless.
Legendary comic Dave Chappelle was once revered by everyone on the left, but all of that changed after jokes he made in recent standup specials.
Chappelle made jokes about transgender people, and activists went ballistic.
Apparently, everyone is fair game in comedy expect transgender individuals.
The culmination of the left-wing backlash to Chappelle manifested when a deranged man named Isaiah Lee bumrushed the stage at a Chappelle show and tackled the comedian.
But Lee was only sentenced to 270 days in prison despite the attack and being in possession of a knife.
From The New York Post:
“The deranged attacker who tackled comedian Dave Chappelle on stage pleaded no contest to the crime Wednesday and was sentenced to 270 days in prison. Isaiah Lee, 24, rushed the startled funnyman at a packed Hollywood Bowl appearance in front of stunned spectators on May 3. Lee, who cops said was carrying a replica gun and a knife, was hit with assault and entering a restricted area charges, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.”
The attack by Lee happened shortly after Will Smith shockingly marched onstage at the Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock in the middle of the show after he told a harmless joke about Smith’s wife, actress Jade Pinkett Smith.
The Post continued:
“[Lee] avoided a felony rap because he didn’t produce the weapons during the attack. The self-identified bisexual said Chappelle’s controversial material on the LGBTQ+ community had ‘triggered’ him and led to the violence. ‘I wanted him to know that, next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect,’ he said in a jailhouse interview…He also claimed that Will Smith’s infamous slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars inspired him to rush Chappelle at the Los Angeles show.”
Coincidentally, Lee was wanted in connection with the attempted murder of his roommate.
The attack on Chappelle alerted authorities to his whereabouts.
After Lee’s assault, Chappelle attorney Gabriel Colwell said, “It’s a travesty of justice that Gascón is refusing to prosecute this case as a felony…The city attorney, who filed the case, is doing his job but DA Gascón should also do his job and charge this as a felony…This is what Mr. Chappelle wants. Mr. Chappelle wants this case charged as a felony…Ten thousand people saw Dave Chappelle assaulted on stage at the Hollywood Bowl last Tuesday night, and the assailant had a deadly weapon on him…The fact that this isn’t charged as a felony case by the DA is insane.”
Crime has spiraled out of control in Los Angeles.
George Soros-backed District Attorney George Gascón survived a recall effort after thousands of signatures on the recall petition were dubiously rejected; conversely, almost no Los Angeles ballots were discarded during the 2020 election.
Repeat violent criminals like Lee continue to get put back out on the streets.
