A fan took to the stage and tackled the comedian to the ground, which reminded the world of a similar incident that occurred at the Oscars 2022, involving Chris Rock and Will Smith.

Quite naturally, fans made the same connection between the two incidents, which irked the community as a whole. Twitter users took to social media to voice their opinion and shared their displeasure.

The community even called out Joe Rogan to help create a safe space for comics and put an end to these incidents.

Fans call for Joe Rogan to intervene and prevent these incidents

Twitter user, The Angry Gamer, wasn’t pleased with how things panned out during Chappelle’s performance. He voiced his displeasure on the platform and even asked for UFC Icon Joe Rogan to arm himself against such fans,you’ve encouraged so many other as*holes to be a simp like you, @joerogan and them man are going to need armed guards on stage now… it’s mad you.”

It is also being reported that the attacker was carrying weapons. Thankfully, security and guards rushed to the stage just in the nick of time to prevent it.

The armed man may have tackled Chappelle to the ground, but the security put him in an armbar and removed him from the premises. “The elbows aren’t supposed to be bent that way,” said another user.

It seems like Chris Rock got a chance to sneak in a minor joke towards Will Smith, as he rushed to the stage to help his fellow comedian.

Things would have ended differently if Joe Rogan was involved. The fan might have landed on his head, or could have been put to sleep without a doubt. Rogan is an experienced martial artist holding multiple black belts.
