Jerry Seinfeld Heckled by Pro-Palestinian Protestor at Comedy Show

Pro-Palestine protests disrupted Jerry Seinfeld‘s Saturday night comedy set at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, Virginia, which eventually resulted in one protestor being escorted out of the venue.

In videos posted online and shared by local news station WTKR, Seinfeld’s show was interrupted by a man who stood in the crowd and yelled toward the comedian that he was “a genocide supporter.”

Another video posted to Instagram shows the individual yelling, “Save the children of Gaza,” “No more American tax dollars for genocide” and “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Other members of the crowd responded by booing and chanting, “Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!” The protestor was escorted out of the venue by security.

From the stage, Seinfeld could be seen saying, “This is exciting. I like this.”

Seinfeld has been vocal about his support for Israel since the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks, visiting Tel Aviv in December to meet with the families of hostages and remaining outspoken in his support for the country amid their conflict with Palestine. Last weekend, Seinfeld’s commencement speech at Duke university was met with some pro-Palestine protests and student walkouts.

“We are deeply disappointed that a group of protestors disrupted tonight’s sold-out Jerry Seinfeld performance at Chrysler Hall,” show producer SevenVenues told WTKR. “SevenVenues stands by its policy to remove hecklers and those who disrupt a performance, and will continue to protect the freedom of its patrons to enjoy an artist of their choosing without disruption.”
