Did Jon Stewart Really Beat Down Dave Chappelle's Attacker?

Shortly before news hit that Dave Chappelle’s attacker will not be facing felony charges, TMZ obtained audio of the comedian where he bragged about how he “felt good” that his friends broke his arm. “How bad does a n***** have to be that Jon Stewart would stomp him!” Chappelle said. This audio seemingly confirmed reports that Busta Rhymes, Jamie Foxx, and now Stewart roughed up Chappelle’s attacker, but the comedian’s rep has since claimed that Chappelle was only joking about the backstage beatdown. That very well could be the case, or it could be a whole lot of ass-covering because we all saw that dude’s arm was not bent in a natural way. (TMZ)
