As Chappelle joked about having to tighten up his security after making trans jokes at the Netflix is a Joke festival, Lee stormed the stage. The attacker was armed with a gun that disguised a knife, according to the cops. It’s unclear whether he was searched when he entered the stadium or how he got on stage.
