JOE ROGAN “WORRIED” ABOUT COMEDIANS AFTER DAVE CHAPPELLE ATTACK

WHAT HAPPENED?

Joe Rogan discussed the attack on Dave Chappelle on his podcast, explaining why he’s concerned about more of these incidents happening in the future.

Police charged 23-year-old Isaiah Lee with several misdemeanors, but prosecutors dropped a felony assault with a deadly weapon charge, causing Rogan to speak out.

When you see that a person commits a clear crime, and does it to one of the most loved performers alive, and does it in a very high profile public setting, and it gets captured on video, and you don’t charge that person for what they obviously did, it’s the kind of thing that makes people lose faith in law enforcement.

We live in strange times. The Chris Rock thing, that’s one of the things I was worried about, I was like, ‘are people thinking they’re going to start smacking comedians now?’

This was a reference to the most recent Oscars event where Will Smith got on stage and slapped Chris Rock for a joke he made about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
