Dark Days For Comedians: Dave Chappelle Assaulted On Stage

If some thought political correctness caused a crippling blow to comedic performances the potential emergence of actual physical attacks on comedians presents the ultimate infringement on jesting.

‘What’s Going On?’

-Marvin Gaye

Last month Actor Will Smith stormed the stage of the Academy Awards to slap Comedian Chris Rock in the face over a joke about his wife, Jada-Picket Smith. And now another comedian feels the heat from an enraged audience member over a joke about the trans people. However, it seems it did not end so well for the attacker in this newest attempt to aggressively attack an offending comedian.

An audience member stormed the stage and physically attacked comedian Dave Chappelle in the middle of his performance in Los Angeles Tuesday night, but he was seemingly unharmed.

The perpetrator was pursued by security personnel until he was apprehended off stage at the Hollywood Bowl. The assailant was eventually carried from the scene on a stretcher, and his arm and face appeared to be injured.

Although Chris Rock himself delivered an amusing joke in the aftermath of the attack, the emerging boldness of the brazen assault was not.

It’s interesting to consider whether there is now a physical war of intimidation rising against jesting or even laughter. It is a disturbing notion that after seeing Will Smith assault a comic with no legal repercussions, people will now feel inspired to assault comedians.

It is a disturbing notion that after seeing Will Smith assault a comic with no legal repercussions, people will now feel inspired to assault comedians. Perhaps they will think they are protecting their ideologies by assaulting the people who are making the jokes.

No one should be assaulted for making a joke. The golden age of comedy has turned into the age of fear. Stand-up comedy has been relegated to being performed in back rooms, out of the public eye. Comedy has been sanitized, leaving a large majority of people without the ability to laugh.

When it comes to comedy and the potential to offend others with jokes seems to be an enactment of free speech expression that is protected under the First Amendment in the United States. But there is a bigger issue here. We are becoming so sensitive to language that we are removing comedy from our lives altogether. We can’t say anything that might offend someone, even in a joking manner. This is a terrible way to live. Laughter is the best medicine in times of distress and can soothe the soul.

Hopefully, this form of imitation of comedic free speech expression will eventually be liberated again. People need to learn how to laugh again. And comedians ought to self censor themselves in fear of being attacked on stage. This is indeed serious because someone could get badly hurt over tolerating this type of public aggression. We need to learn how to be okay with being offended and learn how to give proper peaceful and legal r

Even if we’re joking, we can’t say anything that might offend someone. This is an awful way to live. In times of distress, laughter is the best medicine and can soothe the soul. Overall, jesting provides a beneficial remedy of laughter to the world that ought not, be deluded or abandoned as non-essential.

Hopefully, this form of imitation of comedic free speech expression will eventually be liberated again. People need to learn how to laugh again. And comedians ought not to be conditioned to self censor themselves in fear of being attacked on stage. This is indeed serious because someone could get badly hurt over tolerating this type of public aggression. We need to learn how to be okay with being offended and learn how to give proper peaceful and legal responses when we are.

Oscars Side Show Offers An Action, Packed Smack to Remember

The Oscar Academy Awards have degenerated into a total mess. Fashion, wise there was only one gown that stunningly looked good: Lupe Nyong’o’s golden gown. Although Jada Pinkett-Smith’s enormous lettuce leaf gown was criticized, at least she didn’t have exposed butt cheeks protruding. Will Smith striking Chris Rock, reminiscent of when Kanye West storming the stage, extravagant yet ridiculous designed costumes, Botox faces — it all points to a declining industry. The modern-day disinterest in the Oscars can be seen in television ratings, which reflect how many people watched this year’s Oscars. Bottom Line: Don’t hold your breath for them to change their ways or their attempts to shove this award ceremony in our faces every year.

This year indeed the Oscars offered an action, packed smack side-show event for all to remember.

It was obvious that something had to be done to rekindle interest in the Oscars. So we conveniently now have this showcase of rage for the record in tweets, reports, to excessively mull over that reveals how Will Smith Smacks Chris Rock over a joke about his wife’s Jada Picket Smith, shaved head.

What can be said as well is that Will Smith’s later award acceptance for best actor was completely overshadowed by his previous seemingly aggressive action in the midst of the questionable yet rare occasion that an African American Actor actually wins the Best Actor Oscar award.

Ideally, Will Smith’s actions were either planned or spontaneously produced, leaving the rest of the public to speculate. That is open to interpretation, but Smith’s actions have sparked a firestorm of criticism among the dwindling number of people who still care about the Oscars. Even so, shouldn’t acts of violence be condemned by those constantly, yet seemingly hyprocrtically lecture the public about how to properly live our lives?

OVERall with all that is going on in the world from candid talks about WWIII, food shortages, elevation in fuel prices, excessive record-high inflation, the decline in the quality of living worldwide, questionable election integrity issues, seemingly unethical conduct by the media or politicians places this sensationalized side-show event at the bottom of importance really.
