Nick Cannon may have finally gotten himself canceled. He has been vocal in the Black Lives Matter movement but has always toed the line on sounding less than informed at times. On his latest podcast, he had rapper Professor Griff, an avowed anti-semite on. Nick offered these thoughts:
“When we talk about the power of melanated people. Melanin is so powerful, connects us in a way, that the reason why they fear blacks is because of the lack that they have of it.”
He went on to say this about white people: “They had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough environments, so they’re acting as animals. So they are the ones that are actually closer to animals, they are the ones that are actually the true savages.”
The backlash was immediate. Nick went to social media to speak his peace:
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding.”
ViacomCBS, which airs Nick’s Wild N’ Out show and whose Nickelodeon channel has had Nick on for years, released this statement:
“ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him. We are committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds.”
The internet is on fire, getting completely destroyed by the news and the reactions are flying. Hit the flip to see it all.
“Not the yts trying to cancel Nick Cannon for saying the same thing they have been saying about Black people for years.”
“There is no such thing as being racist towards white people. They cannot be oppressed by a system that they built for them to oppress others. Nick Cannon is prejudice. Not racist.”
“White people now that Nick Cannon came out with a comment that is ACTUALLY racist against whites”
“It’s interesting to see this form of Nick lol.
I remember for years black people weren’t messing with Nick and constantly called him “Ear of maize Ear of maize” and the only thing that kept him going was “White culture” putting him on shows.
Not shilling, just pointing out the hypocrisy.”
“Not y’all getting on Beyoncé’s internet to call Nick Cannon a racist”
Again, Black people can’t be racist. This is basic information. Nothing new to see here, kids.
“not the yt’s trying to cancel Nick Cannon because their feeling “attacked” bby go back to bed”
“Nick cannon , Kanye , chance the rapper , terry crews and Jason Whitlock assembling on the twitter timeline”
