Will Smith put a target on comedians’ backs with his Academy Award meltdown.
Dave Chappelle had to pay the price for Smith’s shocking episode.
Now Chappelle’s attorney ripped one Democrat for the terrible thing he did.
Will Smith’s assault of Chris Rock during the Academy Awards was bound to create copycats.
Dave Chappelle found that out the hard way when a deranged audience member named Isaiah Lee tackled him onstage during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
Lee somehow sidestepped security protocols and assaulted Chappelle while having a knife in his possession.
However, George Soros-backed Los Angeles district attorney George Gascón refused to bring felony charges against Lee.
That dropped the case down to the city attorney, whose purview is misdemeanor charges.
Chappelle’s attorney Gabriel Colwell was livid, calling Gascón’s decision “insane.”
Colwell told the media, “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.”
Gascón’s decision to give Lee a slap on the wrist is in line with his progressive, soft-on-crime policies that have caused a major uptick in crime.
According to Los Angeles Police Department statistics, since Gascón took office in 2020, homicide is up 34%, violence crime 15.5%, property crimes 6.7%, and shooting victims 67%.
Yet arrests are down an absurd 25%.
That is why the radical DA is facing a recall.
A spokesperson for the group Recall Gascón explained, “Perhaps worse than any one specific policy, Gascón has sent a loud and clear message to criminals that he will always have their backs, whether that means lowering sentences or declining to prosecute certain crimes altogether…That mentality has turned the streets of Los Angeles into a living nightmare — criminals feel emboldened, residents feel unsafe, and victims feel completely betrayed…That is why you see convicted killers saying they are going to tattoo Gascón name on their forehead or toasting Gascón with homemade alcohol from inside a prison cell.”
The spokesperson was not being hyperbolic.
Luis Angel Hernandez, who was convicted of murdering a delivery driver, got caught on a prison phone exalting Gascón for his lenient approach to violent crime.
Hernandez said, “I’m going to get that n****’s name on my face. That’s a champ right there…F***ing Gascon…That’s the n**** right there, bro. He’s making historic changes for all of us, bro.”
Even liberal residents in Los Angeles have had enough.
Far-left, Trump-deranged actress Roseanna Arquette even supports the recall of Gascón:

It’s bad when the wokest of the woke can no longer endure the progressive onslaught.
