Kanye West‘s US presidential campaign may have many raising their eyebrows, but he appears to have support from his wife’s ex-boyfriend Nick Cannon.
Full story below…
Speaking to TMZ while at Los Angeles’ LAX Airport, Cannon said of the rapper’s White House ambitions: “I love it!”
When quizzed further about Weezy’s candidacy, Cannon gushed: “Yeah. We need another black man in power,” intimating that he would vote for West.
The sentiments come after a whirlwind of sorts for Cannon.
As widely reported, the comic’s controversial comments made about race and Jewish lineage on a June podcast swam to the surface and went viral.
The fall-out – which included an initially defiant stance from the star – saw ViacomCBS sever ties with him. Seemingly taking away his ‘Wild N’ Out’ show in the process.
In a rapidly evolving series of events, Cannon demanded full ownership of the MTV show and levelled a number of accusations at the media giant. Only to shortly after issue a lengthy apology for his initial remarks. He has since donated to the Jewish Center.
