ABC Hosts Pin Blame for Dave Chappelle Attack During Netflix Is a Joke Festival on Donald Trump’s Unleashing “Incivility”


    ABC's Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin said on Tuesday’s ABC's “The View” that comedian Dave Chappelle getting attacked on stage during the Netflix Is a Joke Festival was partly due to former President Donald Trump unleashing “incivility.”

    Co-host Whoopi Goldberg stated, “What do you think is happening? It's happening on airplanes. It's happening on street corners. People are just running up. I mean, the Hollywood Bowl. He just ran up on there.”

    Co-host Joy Behar added, “Things that can contribute to what's going on. The pandemic, the opioid crisis, the fact that Trump was out there saying things like ‘just knock the hell out of them, I promise you I'll pay for the legal fees' when he had a heckler. I mean, there are many factors involved here. And then Will Smith was the piece de resistance as it were.”

    Guest Lindsey Granger said, “Okay. This is not a political thing. You want to wrap it into politics, but this is really about security.”

    Behar observed, “It didn't happen before.”

    Granger stated, “Will Smith was particularly right-leaning running up on the screen and slapping Chris Rock.”

    Sunny Hostin concluded, “But I think that Trump unleashed some incivility, at least in our country.”
