Things got interesting the other night for Dave Chappelle, as he performed for fans at Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A fan who had one to many drinks ended up throwing a banana peel at Chappelle during the show, which later the man was arrested. Many are claiming his drunken act to be a form of racism.
Dave Chappelle was the victim of a drunken racist attack during a New Mexico show — a guy in the crowd threw a banana peel at him … and got thrown in jail for it. Santa Fe cops busted Christian Englander after he hit Chappelle in the leg with the banana on Monday night. Not shockingly … police say he appeared to be wasted, and confessed to doing it. He was booked for battery and disorderly conduct. Meanwhile, Chappelle seemed to brush it off — according to fans at the venue, he used the ignorant attack as material in his show.
