Kanye West is mentioned in Dave Chappelle’s “SNL” opening monologue
Dave Chappelle’s opening monologue on Saturday Night Live addressed Donald Trump, the midterm elections and Kanye “Ye” West’s anti-Semitic tirades. The comedian began by issuing a statement he said he wrote. “I condemn anti-Semitism in all its forms.” “And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time,” he said, “and I stand with my Jewish friends.” Chappelle spent most of his act bashing West, accusing him of feeling untouchable until Adidas, among others, fired him over a series of anti-Semitic comments on social media. He added that, ironically, the Nazis founded Adidas and even they were outraged. Chappelle also discussed Kyrie Irving, who was recently banned from the Brooklyn Nets for at least five games after posting a link to the anti-Semitic video Hebrews Against Negroes: Wake Up Black America.
What happened when Isaiah Lee was arrested on the show?
Isaiah Lee, who attacked Dave at the Hollywood Bowl, was also taken into custody. The man suspected of stabbing comedian Dave Chappelle on stage at the Hollywood Bowl has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing his roommate at a temporary housing facility in December, the prosecutor said.
The prosecution alleges that Lee was recognized and captured in part during the original attack because of the attention paid to the Chappelle incident. A message was left seeking comment from an attorney defending Lee, but the county’s public defender’s office did not immediately respond. Lee was arrested on May 3 for allegedly storming the stage and assaulting Chappelle at his stand-up show at the Hollywood Bowl. In a video statement announcing the allegations, city attorney Mike Feuer said the alleged attack had consequences and that his office takes public safety seriously and would pursue this case forcefully.
