Dave Chappelle attack the latest in a trend of performers targeted onstage
The recent attack on Dave Chappelle isn't the first time a performer has been targeted onstage.
The big picture: Chappelle was tackled onstage late Tuesday by a man with a replica gun at a Los Angeles comedy festival. He was uninjured in the attack.
Multiple incidents have occurred in recent years where celebrities were attacked by stage crashers:
Adam Levine: A concertgoer ran on stage and disrupted a Maroon 5 concert in October 2021 at the Hollywood Bowl. A viral TikTok clip showed security quickly grabbing the woman and pulling her away from the band's frontman Adam Levine.
Musicians Keith Richards, the late Amy Winehouse and Akon all also experienced fan incidents at their shows, per Rolling Stone.
