Chapelle Attacker Says He Attacked The Comedian Because He Was "Triggered" By LGBT Jokes
· · May 24, 2022 ·

Earlier this month, Dave Chappelle was the victim of an attempted attack live-on-stage at the Hollywood Bowl when lunatic Isaiah Lee stormed the stage and went after Chappelle with a "knife that identifies as a gun."

Lee has now said that he attacked Chappelle because he was triggered by the comedian's "anti-LGBT" humor.

The man who attacked Dave Chappelle on stage at a Los Angeles comedy show earlier this month said he was 'triggered' by the comedian's jokes about gay people and homelessness, and told Chappelle he should be more sensitive.

Lee attacked Dave Chappelle because the COMEDIAN told JOKES he didn't like.

Yeah, just because you don't like a joke, that's no excuse to physically assault someone (CC: Will Smith).

On Sunday, Lee told The New York Post that he was not amused by Chappelle's repartee.

'I identify as bisexual and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering,' Lee said Saturday at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.

'I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.'

He said he was excited to see Chappelle's show, being recorded live for Netflix, but grew increasingly angry at the content.

He had been homeless before, and said the jokes made him emotional and upset.

We've all been in situations where people have told jokes that made us angry. And if you're in a bar with someone who told jokes offensive to you, you may try to get a slug in. But storming a stage and trying to attack someone while they're doing a show?

That's a bridge too far.
