Chappelle was performing at the "Netflix Is A Joke" comedy festival organized by Netflix. The streaming service has been producing specials with Chappelle for several years, and they seem to go over well with parts of the audience.

However, the special "The Closer" , which premiered last year, had also drawn criticism. In it, Chappelle said, among other things, that gender was "a fact" and that LGBTQ people were "too sensitive." For sexual minorities, he said, there had been improvements within a few years that were still denied to blacks decades later.

As a result, there had also been protests internally at Netflix, but Co-Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos held his protective hand over Chappelle. In an internal letter, he emphasized at the time that it was also about defending "artistic freedom."

"This was probably a transman," Chappelle is said to have said after the attack, according to industry magazine Variety. In fact, nothing is known so far about the background and the identity of the attacker. Actors Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock are said to have appeared on stage afterwards.

Rock was also recently the victim of an attack on the open stage, Will Smith had slapped him at the Oscars. According to Variety, Foxx told Chapelle, "You're a legend, and we're not going to let anything happen to you."
