Smith also defended actor Chris Pratt in a Facebook Live video after the actor came under fire after tweeting that he was praying for Smith.

'Poor Chris Pratt, one of my favorite actors on the planet, f*****g put up a nice tweet, where he's just like "Hey man, I don't know you that much but I love 'Clerks' and I'm praying for you" and and apparently people were like, 'F**k your prayers' and attacked him and s**t,' he said.

'And number one, thanks to Chris Pratt, how sweet was that,' he continued. 'Number two, please don’t fight over stuff like that. It’s a waste of time. Whether you’re religious or not, someone saying "I'll pray for you," it’s good intentions.'

Smith was forced to cancel the second of two stand-up shows he was filming for his show 'Kevin Smith Live!' as a result of the medical emergency.

In the 19-minute video, he recounted his experience leading up to, during, and after his heart attack, explaining that he began to feel nauseous after finishing the first of the back-to-back shows.

'I started feeling pressure on my chest — but not like, 'There's an elephant on my chest' — I just couldn't catch my breath,' he continued. 'Honestly, I was never really in pain.'

'I was content,' he said in the Facebook Live video, filmed from his hospital bed. 'I didn't wanna die, don't get me wrong, but I thought if the ferry man comes tonight... what a ride it's been'.

But it took some time to convince the Clerks director that his condition was even serious, let alone a major heart attack.
