The man who tackled comedian Dave Chappelle at the Netflix Is A Joke Comedy Festival reveals his reason had to do with the comedian’s jokes. Accused Dave Chappelle attacker Isaiah Lee reveals why he tackled the comedian on stage several weeks ago, citing the show’s offensive material. During the Netflix Is A Joke Comedy Festival at the Hollywood Bowl on May 3, a previously unidentified assailant rushed the stage and tackled Chappelle, who was in the midst of a comedy set. The attacker, who was reportedly in possession of a replica handgun with a retractable knife, was swiftly apprehended by security and ushered off stage, suffering a broken arm.
Chappelle had been criticized by trans people and their allies for his Netflix comedy special, The Closer, which included jokes that targeted the transgender community. A group of Netflix employees staged a walkout protesting the special and Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos’ refusal to remove it from the platform. Immediately following the attack on May 3, Chappelle referenced these previous criticisms when he reacted to the attack by saying to the crowd, “That was a trans man,” before fellow comedian Chris Rock took to the stage in support.

A new report from the New York Post, Lee reveals the reason behind rushing the stage, saying he was “triggered” by Chappelle’s offensive jokes about the LGBTQ+ community and homelessness. The Los Angeles resident, who is currently facing four misdemeanor counts, claims that his breaking point at the show was a particularly crude joke from Chappelle about pedophilia. Lee says that brought back painful memories of being molested as a teen.
The attack on Chappelle resulted in an outpouring of support from other comedians. Many seemed distressed over the physical attack indicating their time on stage could open them up to similar circumstances. Kevin Hart expressed hope that the quick response in the moment would discourage future would-be attackers from taking the stage to assault a comedian. It remains to be seen what the long-term effects of the attack on Chappelle will be in the comedy community, but it seems likely that some high-profile comedians will employ additional security at comedy shows in the future. Chappelle has yet to issue a response to Lee’s comments. It’s possible that the comedian will address the issue in future performances.
Superhero Movie 2023 Reportedly Had 45 Writers
A high-profile superhero movie set to be released in 2023 reportedly had 45 screenwriters working on it through the various stages of development. An upcoming superhero film for 2023 reportedly had 45 screenwriters involved in shaping the script. 2023 is turning out to be a major year for superhero movies, as ten are on the books for a theatrical release. Three from Marvel Studios (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels), three from DC (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, The Flash, Blue Beetle), three from Sony (Kraven the Hunter, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Madame Web), and one from Paramount Pictures (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Chapter) all have had several people working on them, and one film, in particular, seems to have had a lot of behind the scenes work done.
Upcoming high-profile superhero movie reportedly had its final script submitted to the Writer’s Guide of America (WGA), with insiders saying that 45 different writers have contributed over various stages of development. Deadline never mentioned the film by name, but it notes that it is basically impossible for all 45 writers to get credits on the finished film. This is an extreme example, but the report says having up to 20 writers on a project has become a common practice among these types of blockbuster movies.
The article does not mention the film by name, the safest guess would be the movie in question is The Flash. First announced in 2014 as part of the DCEU, the film has undergone several creative changes behind the scenes with various screenwriters attached through its development, including Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Joby Harold (Obi-Wan Kenobi), John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and even one by star Ezra Miller and comic book writer Grant Morrison before the current screenwriter Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey) signed on. This also does not factor in the number of attempts at making a Flash movie before the DCEU from screenwriters like David S. Goyer (Batman Begins) and the Green Lantern trio of Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim. With all this behind-the-scenes history, seeing The Flash as the film in question would not be surprising.
