It came across as a major shock recently when actor D.L. Hugely collapsed while being in stage. Now, Hugely posted a video on social media tonight saying that he has been diagnosed with coronavirus and was being released from a Nashville hospital. The comic and activist, who had passed out during a stand-up set the night before, said he initially was being treated for “severe exhaustion and dehydration.”
Hughley noted that he was asymptomatic but said in the video, “They ran a battery of tests, and I also tested positive for COVID-19, which blew me away. … Apparently I just lost consciousness. So, in addition to all the other stuff you have to look out for, if your ass pass out in the middle of a show, onstage, you probably need to get tested.”
Hughley thanked fans for their “prayers and well wishes.”
Hughley had a medical emergency Friday night, collapsing in the middle of his set at a Nashville comedy club and being carried off stage.
We hope he recovers at the soonest.
