Nick Cannon FIRED By ViacomCBS, Controversial Comments On Race Labelled Anti-Semitic

Published: Wednesday 15th Jul 2020 by Sam

As reported, Nick Cannon came under fire for comments he made about race. And now the media mogul has been fired for said verbiage.

Full story below…

Speaking about the current racial climate on his podcast Cannon Class, the ever-busy host and producer described white people as as “a little less,” “closer to animals,” “the true savages,” “acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil.”

He added:

“You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”

Cannon followed with statement that acknowledged the problematic tone of his words, which he admitted should have been articulated better. He notably, however, did not apologize.

ViacomCBS weren’t impressed and have consequently fired Cannon:

“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.”

It’s worth noting that the media entity owns MTV – where Cannon’s ‘Wild N’ Out’ just got renewed for three more seasons. Also housed under their corporate umbrella is Nickelodeon, a platform the star has appeared on often in different capacities since the 90s.

It’s not immediately clear whether his Viacom projects will proceed without him or cease altogether, but what is for sure is that there have been big repercussions.

Time will tell if there’s any effect on Cannon’s hotly anticipated talkshow, which is being produced via his production company NCredible Entertainment and Debmar-Mercury (who helm The Wendy Williams Show).

    So is it Anti-Semitic…. when the European Jews In Israel don’t acknowledge the black Hebrews of the Lemba tribe in Zimbabwe? With DNA that confirms their semantic origins 🥴🥴.

    Nick sounded absolutely ignorant with what he said. Let’s see how long it takes before he runs back to Mariah once his money dries up. Fool. The message is #blacklivesmatter and #justiceforbreonnataylor. Nicks message was not either.

      You are the problem now. In order to keep your career… you have to be fake and shut up. You can’t speak from the heart. Wow! If it wasn’t so true, they wouldn’t have fired him. That was a tactic to shut him up, so that he won’t spread light on what most people sleep on. You are a pure sheep. Celebs are people just like everyone else. They have a right to an opinion and also a right to speak. He has a platform and just like any other good person in the world, he will use his platform to spread knowledge(the most powerful thing in the world). You are the r*****. If we are gonna fight, everyone has to stand up. F*** fame! He will get money another way.

        If black people are more superior to white, then why is Africa a mess?

        Why are Africans running to Europe to have a better life.

        The reason is because of the sanctions that European countries put on the African Nations. They were colonized because black people, like the native Americans were too friendly. But if they remove them sanctions I bet African nations would make the European countries look 3red world!!!

      And who exactly decided for ONLY those two hashtags to saturate world news? 🐑🐑🐑

    I don’t understand these celeb-retards…Why don’t they just shut up. People are extra sensitive and critical these days. Therefore, why offer your opinion or views on matters with a chance of losing your career.

    • Danny Bey July 15, 2020

      Because for some, careers don’t make people. For some, people are a people before they are celebrities. At the end of the day they’re humans with thoughts feelings and opinions. Why tf should they let a coin take away their right to say and feel whatever and however tf they feel? Your logic part of the problem. Your the same b*tchea that will be crying about these “celebs” for not donating enough to causes or posting BLM on Instagram. Shut up.

      • dee July 16, 2020

        So…he just apologized to keep his job! Now what are you saying dear. Case close.

    • PinotNoir July 15, 2020

      Because Nick’s financially solvent and daring enough to open wormy cans necessary to expose how some fractions of white-skinned entertainment monopolists mistreat black talent without it ever going on social media for fear of losing bank. Dude wants his black life AND talent to matter however divergent his personal philosophy and his employers’ are.
