Comedian D.L. Hughley found himself in quite a scary situation recently. On Friday night, Hughley hosted a virtual Juneteenth fundraiser and subsequently performed his stand-up routine at Zanies in Nashville. As seen in videos captured by those who were in attendance, the comedian appeared to pass out at one point during his set, which has since caused fans everywhere to express their concerns over his well-being.
In the video in question, Hughley sits on a stool on stage. He says something unintelligible, which causes one man on his team to become concerned. The man can then walks onto the stage to grab Hughley, with the comedian passing out in his arms. Other members of Hughley's team enter the scene to help bring him off the stage. While Hughley himself has not spoken out following this incident, fellow comedian Jay Washington wrote on Twitter that he was in contact with someone close to Hughley, and they shared that he is doing alright. Additionally, VladTV.com CEO DJ Vlad wrote on Twitter that he had just spoken to the comedian and that he was "ok."
