A guy launched himself at comedian Dave Chappelle on stage during his live performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday night, knocking him to the ground.
According to The Daily Mail, Chappelle’s security crew raced onstage, following the assailant as he fled offstage, where they apprehended him with the assistance of Jamie Foxx, who was in the wings wearing a sheriff’s hat.
According to other stories, Chapelle’s security crew assaulted and beat the intruder after catching him off-stage.
Chappelle, who has been harshly criticized by the trans community for his jokes about transgenders, continued the show undaunted, reportedly quipping, “It was a trans man. … I am going to kill that n*.”
“Shout out to Jamie Foxx by the way,” he added to Foxx on stage after the curtain call, The Daily Mail reported. “Whenever you’re in trouble, Jamie Foxx will show up in a sheriff’s hat.”
