In the viral clip, Hughley begins slurring his words and then slides off the stool. As this is happening, fans from the audience jump on stage and try to catch him.

According to TMZ, after collapsing, an ambulance and fire truck showed up and took him to  a nearby hospital.

Since the incident, D.L. Hughley has gone to Twitter to address and thank his fans. He also revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus.

In a video on social media, the comedian said, “It turns out they ran a battery of tests, and I also tested positive for COVID-19, which blew me away. I was what they call asymptomatic, I didn’t have any symptoms, the classic symptoms. I didn’t have flu-like symptoms, I didn’t have shortness of breath, I didn’t have difficulty breathing, I didn’t have a cough, I didn’t have a low-grade fever. I still don’t have a fever. I didn’t have a loss of smell or taste.”

He added, “Apparently, I just lost consciousness. So, in addition to all the other stuff you have to look out for, if your a— pass out in the middle of a show on stage, you probably need to get tested.”
