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 antisemitic rants. The comedian began by delivering a statement he said he wrote. “I condemn antisemitism in all of 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 he was untouchable until Adidas, among other companies, sacked him due to a run of antisemitic remarks on social media. He added that, ironically, Nazis established Adidas, and that 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 to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.
What Happened When Isaiah Lee Was Arrested During The Show?
Isaiah Lee, who assaulted Dave at the Hollywood Bowl, was also taken into custody. According to the District Attorney’s Office, the man suspected of stabbing comedian Dave Chappelle onstage at the Hollywood Bowl has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing his roommate in a transitional housing facility in December.
The prosecution claims that Lee was recognized and captured in the original assault in part because to the attention surrounding the Chappelle incident. A message was left seeking comment from a lawyer defending Lee, but the county public defender’s office did not respond promptly. Lee was arrested on May 3 for reportedly storming the stage and attacking Chappelle during his stand-up show at the Hollywood Bowl. In a video statement announcing the accusations, City Attorney Mike Feuer said that the alleged assault had to have repercussions and that his office takes public safety seriously and would forcefully prosecute this case.
