DL Hughley Tests Positive for Covid-19 after passing out on stage.
A social uprise may be happening, but that doesn’t mean any of us are safe from COVID-19. Comedian OG, actor, and political pundit DL Hughley shook us all last weekend when he passed out on stage during a show in Nashville.
During his performance at the Zanies comedy club, DL collapsed and was rushed to the hospital for treatment. The next day Hughley posted a video on Instagram stating he was treated for “dehydration and exhaustion” from earlier travels.
He also confirmed that he tested positive for Coronavirus which he says “blew him away. “
“I was what they call asymptomatic, I didn’t have any of the symptoms, the classic symptoms.”
DL also made light of the situation by jokingly saying, “if you pass out in the middle of a show, on stage, you probably need to get tested.” It’s great seeing the comedian in good spirits after testing positive and passing out, that’s a strong brother.
The comedy legend ended the video thankful for the prayers and well wishes he’s received and welcomes more. Get well soon DL, we need you, especially in times like this.
