On Tuesday night, Chappelle was finishing his fourth Hollywood Bowl performance as part of Netflix Is a Joke Fest when a man rushed the stage and tackled him to the ground, according to cell phone video. Security quickly took the man in custody. In one video, Chappelle is seen recovering his composure and joking: “It was a trans man.” Because Chappelle, like many comedians, confiscate cell phones before the performance, footage was sparse. Watch video of the aftermath, in which Chappelle discussed the incident with Jamie Foxx and Busta Rhymes. The alleged assailant was apparently injured and was filmed being loaded into an ambulance.
