Lee opened up about the situation while in a Los Angeles correctional facility in an exclusive interview with the NY Post .
“I identify as bisexual … and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering,” he said. “I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.”
He went on to say he was “triggered” by the LGBT jokes which caused his reaction. Lee also revealed Dave Chappelle’s response to his attack was, “Now your story will die with you, son”. Allegedly Dave said this while security spat on him and twisted him up.
