Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Because phones were not permitted in Dave Chappelle’s live show, we didn’t get a good look at what happened. But we got a blurry image of the moment some guy bum-rushed Chappelle, and a pretty good look at the mess security made of the guy dumb enough to try it.
For context, Dave Chappelle was doing a live show at the Hollywood Bowl in the colorfully named ‘Netflix is a Joke’ festival. He was in the middle of his act when he was abruptly and rudely interrupted.
Whatever made the guy think it would be a great idea to charge onto a stage and attack Dave Chappelle during a set didn’t exactly pan out in real life.
Unless, of course, his plan really did involve getting curb-stomped by security and a ride in the back of an ambulance. I’m no doctor, but this guy’s arm does NOT look like it’s at a natural angle.

Here’s what video we do have of the moment of contact:

Security gave him a thorough beat-down.
The man is then seen to be dragged away by security.
In video footage, Chappelle is seen to recover his composure and joke, “It was a trans man.” The joke was a reference to the ongoing controversy surrounding some of the comedian’s jokes in his Netflix specials that have been construed as transphobic. —HollywoodReporter
At the curtain call, he and Jamie Foxx are joking back and forth about the crazy events. In the banter…
Chappelle then jokes to Foxx, “I’ve been doing this for 35 years. I just stomped a n——— backstage. I’ve always wanted to do that.” —HollywoodReporter
Not only did this loser get his head kicked in by security, but he got heckled by the fans as he was being loaded into the ambulance.
Just came out of the Hollywood Bowl where a man charged and tackled Dave Chapelle on stage and got his ass kicked by at least 10 people.

That is NOT a good day.
If this clown thought he was being a tough guy, he’s got a lot to learn. He needs a better model of what a tough guy looks like. For example:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
