Yes, you read the headline correctly!
The man who threw a banana peel at Dave Chappelle during 2015 his stand-up comedy show in Santa Fe, New Mexico is suing the comedian and his bodyguard.
Christian Englander’s lawsuit filed Friday contends the presumed bodyguard struck Englander twice as he was being restrained.
Englander, who is white, has said he had no racial motivation when he threw the banana peel at Chappelle, who is black, but was angered by something Chappelle said during the show.
Englander faced charges of battery and disturbing the peace, but they were dropped because Chappelle was unwilling to participate in the prosecution.
The police report made no mention of Englander being assaulted in any way, shape or form.
If anything, Englander’s feeling are hurt and he’s embarrassed because Dave clowned his antics in one of his Netflix stand-up comedy specials.
