Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up show is interrupted by a pro-Palestinian heckler shouting “Liberate Gaza”

Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up routine was interrupted by a pro-Palestinian protester who stood up at the start of his show Saturday, shouting “Liberate Gaza.”

In a video obtained by TMZ, the heckler is seen getting up from his seat at the Seinfeld show in Norfolk, Virginia, to yell directly at the Jewish comedian.

“You are a supporter of genocide! ” the man said, before waving at the entire crowd and also accusing them of being “supporters of genocide.”

“You should all be ashamed of yourselves!” ” He shouted.

Members of the audience loudly booed the heckler, with some telling him to “get out of here.”

Less than 30 seconds after the Palestinian supporter made himself known, a man in a green shirt ran up and began attacking him, eventually putting him in a headlock.

A member of the public witnessed the confrontation between the protester, seen second from the right, and his attacker, standing immediately to his left and wearing a green shirt.

The protester attempted to continue shouting all the way to the stage during the scuffle, and some fans were heard clapping now that the heckler was silenced.

“I kinda like Jews, I hate to spice up the show,” Seinfeld said as the fight broke out.

Another angle recorded from someone sitting even closer to the fight shows the man in the green shirt moments before the attack, looking angry.

‘To go out. To go out. You’re ruining the situation for everyone… Go away!’ » said the attacker to the demonstrator while pushing him.

A member of the public can be heard telling the man to let go of the protester.

“You will break his neck,” they said.

The fight lasted a good 20 seconds before security guards arrived to break it up.

The crowd then started chanting “Jerry!” Jerry! Jerry! » as security escorted the protester from the premises.

According to people at the show, Seinfeld told everyone not to boo the man because he had the right to protest.

Others throughout the night certainly exercised that right, with TMZ reporting that about eight protesters disrupted Seinfeld’s stand-up show.

Another audience member interrupted Seinfeld mid-joke by saying, “Save the children of Gaza!” No more American taxpayer money for genocide!’

The woman next to him told him to “shut up and get out.”

Seinfeld has been very vocal about his support for Israel, which has made him a prime target for angry agitators.

The billionaire comedian told The Times of Israel in December 2023, just over two months after the Gaza war began, that he “lived and worked on a kibbutz in Israel when I was 16 and since then, I love our Jewish homeland.”

He added that he would “always stand with Israel and the Jewish people.”

Following these comments, Seinfeld was approached in New York after attending the State of the World’s Jews speech in February.

Journalist Bari Weiss gave the speech, and as Seinfeld left the event, protesters repeatedly shouted “Free Palestine” and “You support genocide” at him.

And most recently, dozens of Duke University students walked out of their own commencement ceremony, frustrated that Seinfeld was about to speak.
