The guy who assaulted Dave Chappelle onstage at a comedy event in Los Angeles. Earlier this month, he said the comedian’s comments about gay people and homelessness “fired” him. And that he should be more sensitive. After the May 3 incident, 23-year-old Isaiah Lee was charged with four misdemeanors: battery and assault with a weapon. Illegal entry to the stage area during a performance. And a commission of an act that delays the event or interferes with the artist.
Isaiah Lee explains his purpose
The individual was accused of assaulting Dave Chappelle earlier this month during his act at the Netflix Is a Joke concert. He has spoken about the incident. Isaiah Lee described what led him to do it in an interview with the New York Post. From the Twin Towers Correctional Center in Los Angeles. “I’m bisexual,” he explained, “and I wanted him to know what he said he was teasing.” “I wanted him to know that next time, he should pass on his content to others who might be affected.”
Lee has pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges: battery, assault with a weapon, trespassing into the stage area during a performance, and commission of an act causing the event to be delayed or interfering with the artist.
Isaiah Lee confessed to having the firearm on him
Isaiah Lee was charged with possession of a weapon with intent to attack because he was carrying a retractable knife linked to an imitation firearm on the night of the incident. Lee has confessed to having the firearm with him, but has stated that he was not holding it on stage. Because he is a “little star,” the man, who goes by the rap moniker NoName Trapper, said the firearm was simply with him for safety. Dave Chappelle has already faced criticism for making jokes about the transgender population, something he has brought up over and over since his last Netflix special, The Closer, in which he vowed never to speak on the subject again. Dave Chappelle grabbed the microphone as Lee was escorted offstage by security and said, “He was a trans.”
