As “The Talk’s” Sarah Gilbert was delivering an acceptance speech following the CBS show’s win in the category of “Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team” on Wednesday night’s People Choice Awards, an “unexpected guest” walked onstage and grabbed the microphone.
The man, announcing his name as Zicari Nicasio, proceeded to promote hip-hop producer Kevin Gates, saying, “Shout out to Kevin Gates, he has an album out.”
Three members of “The Talk team,” Julie Chen, Sarah Gilbert and Aisha Tyler appear to be stunned, standing still as Nicasio added another salute to Kayne West, saying, “Yeezy just jumped over the Jumpman… yessir.”
The other two co-hosts, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood were not about to lose the moment and are seen confronting the man, literally kicking him off the stage.
The incident ended quickly and the man was taken into custody by security.
Nicosia apparently planned the stuent. The Hollywood Reporter posted a quote from him, “I had to shout out who I look up to: Kanye West and Kevin Gates.” Adding, “I came here to do this tonight. I could honestly care less about what was going to happen.”
A recording from the audience ended up on his Instagram account within a few minutes.
