An audience member, who walked out of the show, took to social media to criticize Chappelle over his comments. 

‘The audience was cheering Chappelle on during his tirade. I was sick. We were sick. I turned to my friends and wife and said I think it is time to go,’ he said. 

‘We walked out and met up with many other Jews leaving the show. Never in my life have I felt so unsafe and so fearful of what I was witnessing.’

A spokesman for the comedian said he ‘denies being in Boston last night’.

The latest war between Israel and Hamas has been the deadliest yet. 

The United Nations said 1.4 million people have been displaced due to the war with more than half a million people in 147 shelters. 

Israel told all residents in the northern Gaza strip to evacuate and move south but air strikes have continued to hit southern Gaza.

Some Palestinians have refused to leave their homes as they believe nowhere is safe. 

Israel cut off supplies to Gaza after the Hamas attacks which saw its military wing break through the border into Israel. 

Its government said aid into the country would be blocked until the hostages were returned before a deal was agreed for Egypt to reopen its northern border and allow desperately needed humanitarian aid to enter the war-torn enclave.

The first aid trucks entered Gaza on Saturday and the Israeli military said the aid was for southern Gaza only.

UN officials have described the situation in Gaza as a humanitarian catastrophe and have called for an immediate ceasefire. 

The conflict has sparked mass protests across the world in solidarity with the plight of Palestinian civilians as well as those standing with Israel following the Hamas attacks. 

There has been demonstrations in cities including, London, Paris, New York, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo.
