The 53-year-old told audiences the collapse occurred because she had “overheated” in her Statue of Liberty costume.
Williams seemed her old self shortly after the incident when she was spotted leaving her New York City studio, flashing a peace sign to photographers while she sat in the backseat of her car, but reassured fans that she was "doing fine" in a social media post.
“Everybody relax,” she wrote on Twitter. “I’m doing fine, just need some water and electrolytes. On another note, I slayed and laid Halloween, LOL!" Williams wrote on Twitter.
However, despite the talk show host's speedy recovery, Twitter remained shook after the 'scary moment' when William's collapsed on live TV. Here are some their responses:
