Nick Cannon Apologizes For Anti-Semitic Comments That Got Him Fired

Nick Cannon changed his mindset and came with an apology to his “Jewish brothers and sisters” for his anti-semitic comments made in an interview with Public Enemy’s Professor Griff.

In Cannon’s Class podcast episode, the Wild N Out host addressed the current situation and the problem with racism but seems like he went too deep in it, speaking out his position.

Nick compared the white people to animals, calling them savages and blaming them for being evil. After the video of Nick Cannon and Griff went viral, Viacom took the decision to part ways with their long-time partner and his show Wild N Out because of his “anti-semitic” comments.

ViacomCBS came with a statement:

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.

At first, Cannon wasn’t feeling like he has something to apologize for.

Cannon then came with an apology, but for the people, not for the Viacom company.

“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,” – Cannon wrote.

Following the end of the business relationship between Cannon and Viacom, which started over a decade ago, there was a big support for the TV entrepreneur from Diddy’s REVOLT TV and even The Source Magazine, who both offered new “home” to Nick Cannon.

Diddy went on Twitter to invite the already Ex-employee of ViacomCBS in his “Truly BLACK OWNED” REVOLT TV. Yet, there is no additional information if Nick accepted the invitation.
