American comedian Stephen Colbert got choked up while ending his “The Late Show” on Friday as he spoke about the deadly Paris attacks, which left 129 people dead and many other critically injured. The terrorist group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Friday night attacks, which took place at six different locations across the city.

"We end tonight's show with a heavy heart because we taped all of tonight's show and then we found out about the horrific attacks in Paris today," Colbert said on his show after a performance from Michael Flatley, The Daily Beast writes.

"I know that not much is known right now. We do know there have been many deaths and the crisis is still ongoing," Colbert said, adding that the French President has declared a state of emergency while President Obama has promised the United States will provide its undying support.

"We add our thoughts and prayers to everyone in Paris and now, um, we'll see you on Monday. Um," he said after taking a long, emotional pause and fighting back tears. The comedian good only occur a low "Goodnight” to conclude the show.

“The Late Show” aired at 11:35 p.m. EST, when the world was aware of the fact that at least 82 people were killed at Paris' Bataclan concert hall, with 46 reportedly killed in numerous other attacks by gunman or suicide bombers throughout Paris.

On Saturday morning the Islamic State (ISIS) reportedly claimed responsibility for the attacks.

According to the New York Times, ISIS said in a press release that the attacks were the "first of the storm" and made fun of the French capital saying it is a "capital of prostitution and obscenity."

“Eight brothers, wrapped in explosive belts and armed with machine rifles, targeted sites that were accurately chosen in the heart of the capital of France,” the group said in the statement, according to a transcript provided by the SITE Intelligence Group.

The ISIS also said it “including the Stade de France during the match between the Crusader German and French teams, where the fool of France, François Hollande, was present.”
