Dave Chappelle’s Assaulter Explains Why He Rushed The Legendary Comedian
Dave Chappelle’s assailant said he was homeless and bisexual when questioned why he came at the famed comedian.
Isaiah Lee, the man accused of assaulting Dave Chappelle during one of his shows, he wasn’t happy with the controversial comedian’s jokes because they were “triggering.” Lee said Chappelle’s performance affected him since he was homeless, bisexual, and a victim of molestation.
Lee explained to the New York Post from the Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility: “I identify as bisexual… and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering. I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.”
He continued: “I’m also a single dad and my son is five,” before going on to say that he’d been homeless and that Chappelle’s jokes about the homeless offended him. “It’s a struggle and I wanted Dave Chappelle to know it’s not a joke.”
Lee pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges in total, including violence and assault with a deadly weapon.
“I told him my mother and grandmother, who fought for his civil rights to be able to speak, would be upset at the things he said,” Lee continued, claiming that Chappelle replied, “Now your story will die with you, son.”
