What Exactly Did Nick Cannon Say? Here’s Why ViacomCBS Fired The “Wild ‘N Out” Creator

Nick Cannon speaks out after ViacomCBS fired him on Tuesday (July 14) for making what many claim to be anti-Semitic comments on his platform.

 

Cannon was joined by former Public Enemy member Professor Griff who left the group after making anti-Semitic remarks himself, for an episode on his podcast, “Cannon’s Class” where the two had an open dialogue about anti-Semitic conspiracies that involve the Rothschild family.

 

“It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” said Cannon.  “When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”

“When we talk about the power of melanated people when we talk about who we are as Gods and understanding that, melanin is so powerful and it connects us in a way. The reason why they fear Black, the reason why they fear us, is the lack that they have of it.”

 

He continued to question the integrity of the treatment of Black people in America by their White counterparts.

 

“So, however they got the power, they have the lack of compassion. Melanin comes with compassion. Melanin comes with soul. We call it soul. We call ourselves soul brothers and sisters, so the people that don’t have it, are – and, I’m a say this carefully, are a little less,”

 

After he received backlash, the “Wild N’ Out” creator took to Twitter to not only take accountability for what he said but also to open the door for dialogue to help him understand the outrage behind his comments. “I hold myself accountable for this moment and take full responsibility because my intentions are only to show that as a beautiful human species we have way more commonalities than differences, so let’s embrace those as well as each other.”

 

 

Today (July 15), in a Facebook post titled “Truth and Reconciliation”, Cannon demands “full ownership of the billion-dollar ‘Wild ‘N Out’ brand” that he created, along with a call to have “the hate and back door bullying cease.”  Lastly, he says,  “while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!”

 

Truth and Reconciliation.

I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused…

“They can try to kick me while I’m down or force me to kiss the master’s feet in public for shame and ridicule,” Cannon continues, “but instead I stand firm on my square with my fist in the air repeating my mantra, ‘You can’t fire a Boss!’.’

 

ViacomCBS stands firm on their decision to end their long-standing relationship with Cannon who has hosted the long-running MTV sketch comedy series “Wild ‘N Out” since its debut in 2005. In a statement from a ViacomCBS spokeswoman, the company addresses why they have come to their decision.

 

“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,” she said. “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.”

 

Should he apologize for his remarks? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Heck no. He was really dropping down truths, a book will tell you the same thing he said.

  2. He owes no apology he has the right to exercise him his freedom of speech concerning this matter I say pay him what y’all owe him and everybody can be on their way Viacom CBS

  3. As he said,how can we be anti-Semitic when we are the true Semites.The people who control the media(that’s how I will address them so they can’t call it “hate speech”) hear the truth that doesn’t fit their agenda,they lash out at our knowledge.The knowledge they are afraid of us having.

  4. No…Nick Cannon does not need to apologize for his Defined Knowledge of TRUTH! The problem is “His Story” is all that’s been spoken and learned…but when WE start to tell OUR STORY there’s a problem of acceptance…Bill Clinton said this quote “White people have a BIG PROBLEM and they try to make their problems Black people’s BURDEN” Whatever the problem is…Keep it…WE (HEBREW NEGROS, BLACKS, AFRICANS AMERICANS Don’t need nor want your burdens) No Nick doesn’t need to apologize…Apologize to Nick! ONELOVE FAM 👑❤😇

  5. The people who Mr. Cannon thinks are “white masters” are actually jews. Less than 2% of white caucasions (irish, english, german, french) owned slaves in the 1800s. It was the jews who owned all of the slave ships and 35% of jews had slaves.
    Check out a book written by a black brother called “we thought they were white”
    Whitey is poor too! Check out the trailer parks!
    Jews control all media and they have hidden this truth… please do research it black brothers! Most white folk are not your enemy!
    They want us fighting each other so we’re too busy to fight them!
    Love and respect.

  6. That’s racist to view another people as “less” than you. That’s what the whole inequality debate is about and Nick Cannon actually said it. It’s a free country he’s entitled to his opinion but I can’t support someone that thinks if you don’t have melanin you are “less” than the people that do.

  7. No all he was doing was what God loves is the truth.

  8. Wow you all have a lot of hate. Sounds like there is no moving forward for you

  9. His remarks are incorrect so far as all black or Africans being Semites, Hebrews, or Jews. While Semites, Hebrews, and Jews historically would look like the people of Yemen, Ethiopia and Egypt not every one of them are Semites or Jews. That is where is comments are incorrect. He is also incorrect to say all Jews envy Black people. These are items that warrant further discussion.

    I have attended synagogue and found that African (Egypt, Midian) history and shared ancestry with the Hamites and Semites are acknowledged. There are some racist Jews but there are also some Jews who are the very antithesis and combatants of racism. There are Jews who are atheists and there are Jews who are observant. His comments are ignorant because they paint both Jews and Blacks as monoliths.

    He should not be forced to apologize. He should be enlightened with love, patience and compassion. After all, that is how the Torah and the Bible encourages us to correct one another.

  10. White folks hate the truth. They can say whatever they want when they want about Black people publicly and never get fired for doing so. We have a racist President who using ignorant rhetoric all the time but still sits in the Whitehouse for now. Viacom was wrong for firing Nick . Wild and Out was a hit for all but because Viacom couldn’t control Nick they fired him. White people talk about Black people on TV all the time some even using the N word during news segments, on podcast, on TV shows and anytime they feel like it. Viacom itself is none for being racist and I am surprised the show was allowed by you white folks to stay on as long as it did. Oh, wait no I am not. White folks have used Blacks for their personal gain until they no longer need them. There are plenty of white people who should not be on TV or radio for speaking their mind against Blacks but instead of being fired they are praised.

  11. Many layers to this onion. At the center is a somewhat hidden, very unpopular truth: the African origins of the semitic people. The outer layers, years of migration and immigration, though not always voluntarily. The worthless most easily flaking layer, uninformed public opinion; genuine and malicious ignorance. Who will properly peel it back?

  12. As a melanin lacking person, I see nothing hateful about any of this. I don’t give a frack if I’m a little less to him because I have less melanin, tf? I’ve yet to see him treat anyone as less.
