Was Jared Leto's Tribute To Chester Bennington Cut Off For Commercials?

On Sunday's MTV VMA Awards, Jared Leto paid a moving tribute to Chester Bennington, Linkin Park's lead singer, in the wake of his suicide this summer. 

He spoke of his friend and his family, asking the audience to stand and pay respect to the singer. At that moment, MTV decided to cut for a commercial break. 

Bad timing, y'all. 

Twitter wasn't happy about it either:

 
 
 

No matter how you felt about Linkin Park, Chester Bennington deserved a proper tribute and wasn't given one last night. 

ICYMI, here is a portion of Jared Leto's kind and moving tribute to his friend. 

RIP, Chester.
