Footage from 'Netflix Is A Joke,' showing an unknown man assaulting comedian Dave Chappelle before being tackled by Jamie Foxx and security on Tuesday, May 3, went viral on social media. The video shows a man storming the stage and punching the comic in the stomach. Another viral footage has now appeared on Twitter that shows Chappelle's attacker being transferred into an ambulance on a stretcher with a severely wounded arm.

It's unclear what happened to the individual, but the Los Angeles Police Department verified to local media that a man armed with a gun and a knife had been arrested. Though the identity of the person who attempted to harm the 48-year-old has not been established, Chappelle stated, "It was a trans man," while continuing his set following the incident. Chappelle had angered the trans community last year, saying “Every human being in this room, every human being on Earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on Earth. That is a fact.” He also mocked trans people in his Netflix special 'The Closer,' saying they only have "beet juice" instead of real female reproductive organs and blood.

Following the arrest of the attacker, Chappelle thanked Jamie Foxx during the curtain call: “Shout out to Jamie Foxx by the way. Whenever you're in trouble, Jamie Foxx will show up in a sheriff's hat.” Then the 54-year-old answered: “I thought that was part of the show, I didn't know what the f***...” Chappelle then remarked, “I grabbed the back of that n**** head. His hair was spongy. Absorbent.”

Foxx replied: “Listen, I just want to say, this man is an absolute genius. We've got to make sure we protect him at all times. For every comedian who comes out here, this means everything. You're a genius. You're a legend, I enjoyed myself thoroughly, and we're not going to let nothing happen to you.” The ‘Sticks & Stones’ star then said: “I've been doing this for 35 years. I just stomped a n**** backstage. I've always wanted to do that.”
