Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS on Tuesday for making anti-Semitic comments one of his ‘Cannon Class’ podcast episodes last month.
The actor, host and businessman discussed conspiracy theories about Jewish people and praised Nation of Islam leader the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for anti-Jewish comments.
Truth and Reconciliation.
I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused…
Nick Cannon has fired back at ViacomCBS with a long Facebook post demanding for the ownership of the “billion-dollar brand” he created with his MTV and VH1 series “Wild ‘N Out,” alleging that the company “swindled” the show away from him.
Based on trust and empty promises, my ownership was swindled away from me. For Viacom to be so deceptive is no surprise; they have been mistreating and robbing our community for years, underpaying talent on their biggest brands like Love & Hip Hop, all of BET programming and of course, Wild ‘N Out.
Wishing Mr. Cannon the best in that fight in court but on the flip side, Diddy has already offered him a new television home at REVOLT.
