Video posted on social media appears to show a man with serious injuries to his arm being transported to an ambulance.

Chappelle has previously faced a backlash over comments about transgender people on her Netflix special, The Closer.

The comedian said ‘gender is a fact’ and shared his support for JK Rowling, who also drew criticism for her remarks about the concept of biological sex.

Netflix employees reportedly reacted angrily to his comments and staged a strike against the streaming giant’s decision to air the special.

The incident follows Will Smith slapping Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars for a joke the comedian made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

It prompted members of the comedy community, including Jack Whitehall and Kathy Griffin, to express their fears that performers were no longer safe on stage.
