Charlamagne Awards Dave Chappelle Attacker, Isaiah Lee and Security With “Donkey of the Day”

“Drop one the Clue's bombs for Dave Chappelle's team for beating his monkey ass,” Charlamagne said.

Dave Chappelle Attacker & Hollywood Bowl Security Slapped with Donkey Of The Day

The media personality wants to know how did Isaiah Lee manage to get a gun-knife inside Hollywood Bowl. “Everyone should be searched properly why because we have to make sure to keep everyone safe”

The Breakfast Club host continued, “Hollywood Bowl y'all failed every single person in that venue not just Dave Chappelle because if you can get in with a replica of a gun.... “You probably can get in with a real one.”

While performing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles ─ a Netflix Is a Joke comedy festival on Tuesday night (May 3), Chappelle was attacked by an audience member who rushed the stage and tackled the comedian.

Video captured by audience members showed 23-year-old Isaiah Lee storming the stage and tackling Chappelle in the middle of the gig. Security immediately got ahold of the man, as several others tended to the comedian, who ultimately walked away unharmed.

Security immediately runs to apprehend the suspect before apparently beating the crap out of him.

The Los Angeles Police Department has since identified the attacker as 23-year-old Isaiah Lee. Authorities have not confirmed the suspect’s motive, but say he was armed with a replica of a gun that could eject a knife blade. Lee was immediately arrested for felony assault, and is being held on $30,000 bail.

According to TMZ, the LA County District Attorney’s office has declined to charge the suspect with a felony. His case has reportedly been sent to the city attorney, who is considering a misdemeanor charge.

TMZ obtained a recording of the aftermath of Tuesday night’s incident, where Chappelle thanked Jamie Foxx, Busta Rhymes, and Jon Stewart for helping rough up the man who tackled him near the end of his stand-up performance.

“I watched him get kicked around, and I couldn’t believe it was my friends ’cause it’s so good what they do,” the 48-year-old comedian told the crowd. “I felt good my friends broke his arm. I felt good, how bad does a n***a have to be that Jon Stewart would stomp him! […] I’m very proud of them. Killing that n***a would have been stupid. Those are very powerful friends and I’m sharing [tonight] with people I love very much.”
