FORMER MTV Chief Van Toffler opened up about the infamous moment at the 2009 Video Music Awards when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift on stage.

Toffler told The Hollywood Reporter the pop star was hysterical following the shocking mic-stealing moment.

“When Kanye walked up onstage with Taylor [Swift] that year, it turned out that Taylor had to go onstage to do her song five minutes later. I ran out of the truck to see that everything was all right, and Taylor and her mum were crying hysterically,” he revealed.

West interrupted Swift’s speech saying, “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you — I’mma let you finish — but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!”
