After comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage by an audience member at the “Netflix Is a Joke” festival at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, comedian Chris Rock jokingly referenced when actor Will Smith slapped him during the Oscars. He sarcastically asked, “Was that Will Smith?” according to the New York post.

On Tuesday, in a matter of seconds, the American comedian Dave Chappelle was tackled on stage by an attendee at his performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, as part of the “Netflix is ​​a Joke” festival.

Audience members recorded the moment when a person ran up to the stage, pushed Chapelle down to the floor with tremendous force and fled, while people watched the scene in surprise and some caught the incident on their cell phones.

Moments later the stand-up comedian managed to get up and Chris Rock, who was also on stage, took the microphone and hugged Chapelle. He jokingly asked: “Was that Will Smith?” making people laugh and lightening the atmosphere that had taken a confusing tone.

The comedian joked by asking if the attacker was Will Smith, which made the audience laugh. “Dave Chappelle was knocked to the ground on stage! Then Chris Rock came out and said, ‘Was that Will Smith!’ Wildest shit I’ve ever seen in my life,” wrote a netizen.

”Watching Dave Chappelle get attacked by someone in the audience and then seeing the guy get attacked by Dave Chappelle and his crew must be the wildest live show I’ve ever seen. Chris Rock even walked up on stage, hugged Dave, grabbed the mic and said, “Was that you Will?” added another. To see the video click here. Filed Under: Dave Chappelle

According to local media, the police arrived around 10:45 p.m. and the man who’s been arrested was carrying a gun and a knife. Buzzfeed reporter Brianna Sacks recorded the man being loaded into an ambulance.

Among the jokes that Chapelle made after what happened, he mentioned that a trans person had been behind it. Dave has several specials on Netflix, including The Closer, Sticks & Stones, and The Dave Chapelle Show. The native of Washington DC commented later that it had possibly been a trans person behind the attack, as he’s been accused by activists of being transphobic and homophobic because of some material in The Closer.
