Kevin Hart recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he weighed in on the Dave Chappelle attack at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, CA earlier this week. 

According to Hart, the beating of 23-year-old attacker Isaiah Lee “needed to happen” as a way to deter future attacks. 

“Somebody ran onstage and got their ass whooped,” Hart said. “Not scary. It’s one of those things that needed to happen, though…do you want people to continue to think that they can cross that line and break the barrier of entertainer and audience?”
