Nick Cannon Apologizes For Racially Charged Comments: “I’m Ashamed”

Published: Thursday 16th Jul 2020 by Sam

Nick Cannon has walked back his comments racially charged comments and is now apologizing.

Full story below…

As reported, the media mogul found himself at the center of a media storm for utterances made on his podcast Cannon Class.

He was seen describing white people as “a little less,” “closer to animals,” “the true savages,” “acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil.”

It led to ViacomCBS terminating their relationship with Cannon for anti-semitic verbiage – seemingly taking away his ‘Wild N’ Out’ show with it.

After firing off a lengthy response, in which he demanded full ownership of ‘Wild N’ Out,’ the 39-year-old  has pivoted.

He said:

“First and foremost I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin.

They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naive place that these words came from. The video of this interview has since been removed.

While the Jewish experience encompasses more than 5,000 years and there is so much I have yet to learn, I have had at least a minor history lesson over the past few days and to say that it is eye-opening would be a vast understatement.

I want to express my gratitude to the Rabbis, community leaders and institutions who reached out to me to help enlighten me, instead of chastising me.

I want to assure my Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education—I am committed to deeper connections, more profound learning and strengthening the bond between our two cultures today and every day going forward.”

The comments come as FOX have stood by Cannon by allowing him to remain as host of ratings magnet ‘The Masked Singer.’

Interestingly, per TMZ, an apology was what ViacomCBS wanted from the star. When it didn’t manifest, that’s when he was let go.

As such, it’ll be intriguing to see if this changes anything on that front.

    This is obviously how he feels. Still a racist.

    • Fancy BISH July 16, 2020

      Black people cannot be racist! I’m sorry, but that is the real truth! They can be prejudice, strongly defensive, uneducated on certain race/cultural matters and bigoted as all hell, but not exactly racist! Racism is an idea created by those who consider themselves white/superior…it is a belief system, a whole delusional (lol 🤳🏽) way of being and thinking and feeling and making a real system of discrimination, oppression and antagonism to ensure that and keep that delusion of who is superior and who is inferior! It OBVIOUSLY feels good to the evil ones who use it! Listen, if you’re getting whipped, hanged and separated from your family by someone, you’re NOT going to like that person! That’s not racism…that’s getting beat and dragged and kicked while you’re down to near death and growing a strong dislike, distaste and resentment! Black people have the RIGHT to voice their pain! I’ve noticed the good/great white people who feel uncomfortable or punished by that, by bringing up the disgusting history of this country…I feel you boo boo, but so be it! 😂 Jewish people are our allies! Our Jewish brothers and sisters went through exactly what we went through, if not worse! 💯 👊🏽😭 And that’s exactly how I feel about it…NOW, I encourage those who consider themselves white to take an AncestryDNA test and get some heritage, culture and flavor about yourself that’s been LOCKED UP 🔒 😂 There ARE Jewish people who don’t consider themselves white and there are some that do…there are Italians who don’t consider themselves white and there are some that do…PASSING for white is REAL, even in the black community….the TRUTH is EVERYONE knows that the white straight male is at the top of what is considered ideal thanks to racism…and nothing else! 💯🤳🏽

      • CUPCAKKE Puss Power July 16, 2020

        That’s double standard. Is black a race??? Why they can’t be racist????? Answer me! So when black hating on white and call them names, u considered this is not racist action? Wow! U are so ignorant and selfish! Fancy racist bish!!!

      • Fancy BISH July 16, 2020

        Listen, there is NO SYSTEM in place! Being called the N word by a white person? It is STILL an ACTIVE, WORKING SYSTEM in place to ensure that the N word is alive! Racism is a created idea and whole system….and black people didn’t create it! Crackka is an offensive derogatory word in RESPONSE to the N word…but we didn’t make a system of oppression, discrimination, antagonism and killing to ensure that white people felt every part of that word! We good at clapping back tho lol..just like how I’m about to ROAST your ass if you don’t calm yourself the F down! You sound mad boo boo 🤣 You need to educate yourself, you’re talking to an honors graduate 🎓 Go sit down and READ something bish..join a book club 📚 😂🤳🏽

      • #TheTruth July 16, 2020

        Black people can’t be racist ? Ok I stopped reading after that. Enough time wasted…

      • Fancy BISH July 16, 2020

        @#The Truth, game over lol….you waited till this article was on the second page….and if you didn’t read, that is why you are uneducated! You probably read it tho, but you thought you were cute but lacked a real argument…scary ass, bye 🤣🤳🏽💋

  2. No hunny July 16, 2020

    • No hunny July 16, 2020

      Through it all *

  3. Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

    He’ll get away with it. Black men always do. Now, if it was a Jew or a white man that said the same about blacks…

    • Gee July 16, 2020

      He embarrassed himself now he has to be a big boy and clean up his mess before he losses more jobs. He is ashamed because he has to face consequences for his actions he spoke his true feelings unfortunately he hurt himself, and his brand in the process. Hopefully, he learns that somethings are better left unsaid

      • Ms Ling Ling July 16, 2020

        Damage had been done. He’s a grown a:s:s men and a father of two kids. U trying to say he’s immature or something???? Mariah should’ve never let her kids to see him anymore! He ain’t a Good father figure whatsoever

  4. Ms Ling Ling July 16, 2020

    Boy bye! U r done! #NICK CANNON IS CANCELLED

  5. Clarks0o0ñ July 16, 2020

    The white man u called inferior and weak has brought u to ur knees, now u begging for forgiveness

    Who is the inferior race now mr. nick cannon?

    No black person can save u cause black people dont save anybody. Black people cant even save themselves
    U were earning probably up to 6 fixtures at Viacom, diddy or tyler Perry will never pay u that.

    The white man has removed u from ur own show, the show u created by urself. 💀💀💀

    • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

      He wanted to be a victim so bad. Now he’s a victim of himself.

    • Ms Ling Ling July 16, 2020

      Yepper should’ve charged him for hate crime for His statement & Speech. I’m Surprised how other TGJ Trolls accounts or haters didn’t say anything, thought they are fighting Racism. Smh. See black people treating white people like sh#t. Y’all saying nothing! A bunch of Selfish h:o:e:s

    • Clarks0o0ñ July 16, 2020

      With that statement you should see how black people can’t be racist. Black people can be discriminatory, prejudiced, say stereotypes, but they have no power to enslave, or control another race.

      • Fancy BISH July 16, 2020

        Thank you! ✅ Somebody has real knowledge in this comment section, thank God lol 💯

  6. July 16, 2020

    This is why Nicki Minaj is hated and is blackballed because she wouldn’t have apologized, ofter whatever she has said (even though she wouldn’t have said any racist stuff), but this fool who is an industry puppet had to apologize or things would be worse for him. people don’t like it when a woman especially a black one have a mind of their own and who takes control of everything they do. they will continue to do them even when you hate them or not.

    • WRTW? July 16, 2020

      And each time Nicki has been right, and only in time they change things that she’s mentioned

  7. tyty July 16, 2020

    What a moron I don’t actually disagree with what he said but he should took a page from the whites playbook. For the most part the whites will say and paint Black people as savage, uncivilised thugs because they control the narrative and back each other up. Nick went on a one man crusade without any back up from black Hollywood and ended looking a fool if he had an sense and was ready to make such bold claims… would have had his ducks in order. Whites will sacrifice their puppets to keep the overall status quo of racism in place yall don’t really think random Karens and celebrities exposed for racism are a coincidence? Nick should have used a expandable puppet to get his massage out then show said puppet support in the background would have been more effective.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

      Of course you don’t disagree because you’re an out and proud racist yourself. You’re the savage animal with that viewpoint. Don’t like whites? Then go live somewhere where there isn’t any. Leave the most privileged country in the world and see how that works out for you as I guarantee you’ll come crawling back.

      • J July 16, 2020

        Shayla STFU

      • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

        @J

        You’re a facist.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

        What an intelligent counter-argument. All because you don’t actually have one so you have to resort to telling people to “STFU.”

      • tyty July 16, 2020

        Lol you’re so delusional you actually think I give a flying f*** about white people like that? Nah the whites live near me not the other way round. Hence why they cower in fear when they see a strong black woman whose not phased by their savage nature. The fact that you think America is the most privileged country you ain’t traveled much have yah this a “shithole” country as Donnie put it.

      • EyeOpine July 16, 2020

        STFU Shayla Queef. This ain’t the incel websites you frequent.

    • Clarks0o0ñ July 16, 2020

      @tyty

      Ur a complete idiot . A fool who thinks they are smart but they are stupid and deranged.

      Firstly, I’m surprised u didnt accuse that account of being Clarksoon

      I dont even know where to begin with ur statement, that’s to show u how stupid and foolish u are

      U really think superiority is about physical strength or having a sassy personality.
      Ur a fool

      U better change ur logic before u end up a hashtag on Twitter. Cause its ur type that usually gets killed by the black partner. Sorry for u. Idiot

    • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

      Name me one country you think is more privileged than the US and/or the UK? I bet you can’t… If it’s such a “s***hole” so why don’t you leave then? Because you know you’d get a very rude awakening, that’s why. You are an overly-privileged American brat.

      • tyty July 16, 2020

        You have clearly never travelled if you think USA/UK are the epitome of living in a privileged society you’re delusional and succumbed to nothing but good ole propaganda. There are countries with far better opportunities, standards of living etc…. this why you should get of the blogs once in a while and actually experience what the world has to offer. Instead of being an ignorant Bafoon.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

        You are the face of propaganda, dearie. You’ve been spoon-fed the same narrative all your life by your own community and the democrats. The democrats who want you to believe you are oppressed in order to keep you from doing better and achieving anything while always blaming it on the white man.

        As I said, name me one of these amazing countries you speak of… Back it up with facts or leave the conversation.

      • Clarks0o0ñ July 16, 2020

        “There are countries with far better opportunities, standards of living etc”

        Then mention them, u dumb f****.

        Canada?

    • Ms Ling Ling July 16, 2020

      @ tay tay it’s quite ironic u hating on white people and u are a dumb taylor Swift Stan. Stop pretending u r black and I know yo game. Trying to get sympathy from others while your insecurity deeply inside your heart.

      • tyty July 16, 2020

        Taylor swift 😂😂😂 seriously were did you pull that out of that gapping hole you call an asshole? Pretending I’m black which part of anything I write even resembles some who wants sympathy? I said what said and you will continue to deal and seethe.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

        @tyty

        The only one seething is you, darling lol. Seething about white people.

      • tyty July 16, 2020

        You’re perched on this blog refreshing it or getting notifications so you can respond like a loser and I’m expected to take that seriously. It didn’t more than a minute for you to reply? I’m sure you’re clarkson and ms ling ling. You can’t make this s*** up😂😂. Don’t know why you so mad I never said I hate white people. What about my comments offended you so much. If you’re a savage you’re a savage own it 🤷🏽‍♀️

      • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

        @tyty

        No productive counter-argument so you resort to name-calling and insults.

        You lose this one.

      • Ms Ling Ling July 16, 2020

        @ty ty just shut up and I booked a vip room in asylum for u. It’s time for u to do a brain check! U are just creating more hatred against other races. Wrong is wrong! So stop seeking for excuses that white peoples owned him sh#t! U r queen of hate crime and that’s why everybody dragged u and grilled u right now.

  8. Rosy July 16, 2020

    African Americans need to move forward and realize if you killing each other and fighting against each other you will never win the fight blacks are not cohesive as other races Jews Spanish whites stick together blacks fight their own Nick you fighting for blacks now you down in the dumps they the same ones that will laugh at your ass in the process what nick said was clear and blatant racism you can’t fight racism with racism clean y’all own house up then you will see progress stop killing each other in dem streets then blame white peoples

    • Shayla Queen 👑 July 16, 2020

      This.

  9. ERIC July 16, 2020

    Nick is apologizing for how he expressed his idea of who the true Semites are, but what about the people who were hurt by his talk about melanin? What does he say to his white co-workers who he defines as lesser beings, to his ex-mother-in-law and to the mother of his children, all of whom share white ethnicity? What does he say to biracial and black-identifying people who have to contend with arguments about the amount of melanin that makes a person legitimately black?
