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:
Wow. @JaredLeto gave some real talk. Bummer MTV just cut that tribute to Linkin Park short to commercial break, wtf— ░LEFTI░ (@LEFTIMUSIC) August 28, 2017
I can't believe he had to ask everyone twice to stand up and then y'all cut the tribute to commercial! Rest in peace, Chester!— Jo☜Nathan (@JSDrummonds) August 28, 2017
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.
