Dave Chappelle’s onstage attacker will spend even more time in a Los Angeles jail after being sentenced for the crime.

Back in May, the comedian was performing at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl when he was hit with a WWE move by Isaiah Lee. Unfortunately for Lee, things didn’t go how he expected as he was badly beaten, went viral online, and was thrown in jail. Chappelle went on to finish that show and released a statement alongside Netflix to address the scary situation.

Lee opened up about his attack while in a Los Angeles correctional facility in an exclusive interview with the NY Post and said that he felt triggered by Chappelle’s jokes about the LGBT community.

“I identify as bisexual … and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering,” he said. “I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.”

Lee also revealed Dave Chappelle’s response to his attack was, “now your story will die with you, son” and alleged that the comedian made the comment while his security spat on him and beat him.

Dave Chappelle’s Hollywood Bowl Attacker Sentenced To 270 Days In Jail

According to TMZ, Isaiah Lee was sentenced to 270 days in a Los Angeles County jail and pleaded no contest to charges of battery and entering a restricted area during a live event.

Hopefully, with this time behind bars, he can find a new way to address things without violence.
