Dave Chappelle obviously has a lot of fans and detractors, and some of them are obsessed. The same person who attacked Dave on stage was discovered to have used the comic as inspiration for his own rap career. It seems Madonna weighed in on the incident.

Watching Dave Chappelle get attacked onstage by an armed man at the Hollywood Bowl was ‘disturbing for so many reasons,’ according to Madonna. After witnessing the terrifying moment an audience member tackled the comedian to the ground, the 63-year-old pop star broke her silence with her more than 18 million Instagram followers about the incident.

Last Night was strange……….And disturbing for so many reasons! The World is upside down.

Backstage, she captioned a slideshow of herself. In her first photo, she is seen biting into a red and white all access pass with the words ‘Team Chappelle’ written on it while wearing a Balenciaga sweatshirt. She wore her blonde hair in boxer braids, a sparkly manicure with stars, and multiple diamond rings for the occasion.


A 23-year-old man was charged last night with storming the stage with a knife and tackling Chappelle, 48, during his show.
