Isaiah Lee, the 23-year-old man who attacked comedian Dave Chappelle during his performance, opened up about the reasoning behind his actions.

Lee explained that he identifies as bisexual and wanted the 48-year-old comedian to know that his previous stand-up show, where he joked about the LGBT community and homeless people, was triggering.

"I identify as bisexual … and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering," Lee told New York Post at Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles over the weekend. "I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect."

Lee referred to the "Netflix is a Joke" show held on May 3 and shared that he was expecting to have a good time during the performance but instead he got angry at his jokes.

The man went on to reveal that he is a single father of a five-year-old kid. "I’m also a single dad and my son is five," he said. "It’s a struggle and I wanted Dave Chappelle to know it’s not a joke."

Lee was charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office with battery, possession of a weapon with intent to assault, and two other misdemeanor counts.

Ahead of the assault on stage, Chappelle said, "A lot of the LGBTQ community doesn’t know DaBaby’s history. He’s a wild guy. He once shot a n—r and killed him. In Walmart. Oh, this is true. Google it. Nothing bad happened to his career."

"Do you see where I’m going with this? In our country, you can shoot and kill a n—r, but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings!" the comedian added.

A Twitter user shared the video of the attack. At the end of the video, Lee is seen with a broken right arm and black eyes which were caused by the security.

Apart from stand-up comedy, the comedian was last seen featured in a TV series, "Dem Tinseltown Homiez, the Hollywood Guys" in February. He also appeared in 2018's movie, "A Star Is Born" starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
