The man who attacked Dave Chappelle at his show on Tuesday, May 3, has been hospitalized with broken and dislocated hands while the comedian was uninjured.
Video from the Netflix Is A Joke event shows the attacker charging onto the stage and tackling the comedian before being dragged off by security. An unfazed Chappelle continued with his set, joking: ‘It was a trans man’. Watch the video here
Jamie Foxx, who was watching the show at the Hollywood Bowl wearing a sheriff’s hat, rushed on stage to help detain the attacker.
The attacker was later seen getting treatment from paramedics for a badly injured arm before he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Chappelle came under fire last year over jokes about trans people in his Netflix comedy show The Closer.
