Prayers Up For D.L. Hughley! Who Fainted Down In The Middle Of The Show – VIDEO

Darryl Lynne “D.L.” Hughley was in the middle of performing his stand-up routine at Zanies Comedy Night Club in Nashville, Tennessee on June 19, when the comedian suddenly passed out and fe-ll to the ground.Hughley, 57, can be heard saying, “They were imm-igrants,” before his voice tra-ils off and the audience starts ga-sping.

Someone quickly runs out on stage to assist Hughley, but he slides off his stool and hi-ts his head on the stage floor. Two men are then seen dra-gging Hughley off the stage.

A video of the sca-ry inc-ident quickly went viral on Twitter with fans sending out their prayers that he’s okay.Prior to the show, Hughley was hy-ping his performance on Instagram. He shared a clip from The Jeffersona and wrote, “Got your white friends showing OUT on #Juneteenth 🤣🤣🤣 #TeamDL.”

Hughley, one of the original four “Big Kings of Comedy,” is a prolific writer, actor, and producer. He’s starred in numerous films such as Inspector Gadget, Sc-ary Movie, Spy School, and just wrapped working on Timothy Scott Bogart’s upcoming film, Spi-nning Gold. Off-screen, he’s been married to wife Ladonna since 1986 with whom he shares three children.

DJ Vlad Tweeted That Hughley ‘Is Okay’.

Thankfully, DJ Vlad, a popular YouTube journalist whose real name is Vladislav Lyubovny, tweeted out an update on Hughley later in the evening. He wrote, “DL Hughley is okay. I just spoke to him.” While he didn’t go into any detail, it was reassuring to learn that The Hughleys star was not in any gra-ve da-nger following the inc-ident.

Comedian Jay Washington also heard that Hughley is on the me-nd. Washington tweeted, “I just got a text from someone close to D.L that he is doing fine now. THAT IS A BLESSING TO HEAR.”

One look at Hughley’s Instagram page, and it’s clear that he’s been following every development and inci-dent following the loss of George Floyd. While promoting his new book, Surrender, White People! Our Unconditional Terms for Peace, on Sir-iusXM’s The Joe Madison Show, he opened up about the current state of the nation, and the removing statues of conf-ederate leaders.

“If we want people to see our struggle and come to our a-id, we need to do it when it’s not necessarily our fig-ht either,” Hughley said. “To say it’s America and Bl-ack people have had a very vi-olent relationship, but it’s like a marriage where you’ve had a vi-olent relationship, but you’ve decided to move on, but the br-utalizer wants to keep all the images of the da-mage and terror and br-utality.”

Hughley was particularly passionate about the need for Washington D.C’s football franchise to change the team’s name.

“And, the Redskins, it’s just as di-sgusting, and just as den-igrating as the N-word in my estimation,” he said.“And I think that if we stopped playing for them, we stopped supporting their g-ang. Let me tell you, without Bl-ack people, football would be ru-gby. And it is one of the clearest examples of how powerful we are.”

In 2018, Hughley published a book titled, How Not to Get Sh-ot: And Other Advice From White People, which became a New York Times Bestseller. His First New York Times bestseller was published in 2017 – Bla-ck Man, White House: An Oral History of the Obama Years.
