SANTA FE (KRQE) – The backlash continues for the Santa Fe man accused of throwing a banana peel at a popular comedian.

Christian Englander was arrested for tossing the peel at Dave Chappelle during a show Monday night at the Lensic Theater near the plaza.

Chappelle felt it was racist and chose to press charges.

People have been slamming Englander on his Facebook page some calling him an idiot or worse.

Englander does have his supporters. A local environmental activist created a Facebook page called “Help, Not Hate Christian Englander” asking people to give him a second chance.
