Comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage while performing a comedy set during the streaming giant's Netflix Is a Joke festival in Los Angeles last night. And comedian Chris Rock seized the opportunity to take a sly dig at his Oscars 2022 slapgate involving Will Smith. The Pursuit of Happyness actor hit the headlines because of the incident at the Oscars where he assaulted comedian Chris Rock after the latter made fun of Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith's bald head.
A video footage circulated during Dave Chappelle's comedy set shows a man rushing on to the stage and tackling the performer to the ground. The attacker was seen getting up and trying to run off stage before he was caught and tackled by what appeared to be security personnel and members of Chappelle's team. After the attack, Chris joined Dave on stage to check if he's alright and quipped, "Was that Will Smith?", which was followed by a loud cheer and applause from the audience.
