Nick Cannon has ruffled some folks feathers! In the June 30 episode of “Cannon’s Class,” the father and TV host interviewed Professor Griff; a rapper who was a part of Public Enemy before leaving the group; made anti-Semitic statements.
On the podcast, Nick Cannon said Black people are the “true Hebrews” and talked about the power of melanated people and the reason why Caucasians fear African Americans. “They’re acting out of fear. And low esteem. They’re acting out of a deficiency”, he said to Professor Griff.
“So therefore, the only way they can act is evil.They’re the ones that are actually closer to animals”, he said.
The network that hired Cannon back in 2005 to host his famous show, ‘Wild N’Out’ would be discontinued because they too werent too pleased at what they heard on the podcast.
See Nicks response in a tweet below:
Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding.— Nick Cannon (@NickCannon) July 13, 2020
It doesn’t take long for word to get out, Diddy heard about what happened and decided to offer Nick support and possibly a new home for his show, ‘Wild N’Out’.
“Nick come home to @revolttv Truly Black-owned!! We got your back. And love you and what you have done for the culture. We are for our people first! For us! By us,” Diddy posted in a comment on The Shade Room’s Instagram page.
Nick Cannon has yet to respond to Diddy’s offer.
But he did apologize for his statements.
