Nick Cannon Demands Apology, Ownership of Wild’ N Out After Firing

After ViacomCBS dropped  Nick Cannon for anti-semitic remarks he made on his “Cannon’s Class” podcast,” The Masked Singer host hit back in a lengthy 1000+ word post on Facebook, demanding full ownership of his show Wild ‘N Out. He also wants Viacom to apologize.

 “But now I am the one making demands,” Nick writes. “I demand full ownership of my billion dollar “Wild ‘N Out” brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership! I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!

The gist of it is:

  • The Powers That Be misused an important moment  to make an example of an outspoken black man
  • “I will not be bullied” Nick says.
  • Points out he joined the Viacom family over 20 years ago when he was a child actor. He lists career highlights.
  • He claims he reached out to Viacom owner Shari Redstone to have a conversation of “reconciliation” and to apologize if he said anything that “pained” her or her community. “Dead silence!” Nick insists. “So that’s when I realized they don’t want a conversation or growth, they wanted to put the young negro in his place.” Viacom is on the wrong side of history, he says.  A rep for Redstone says Cannon’s claim he reached out to Redstone is “absolutely untrue.”
  • ” NBC threatened and mistreated me for years, but I was the bigger person and abandoned an 8-figure salary on their number one hit show “Americas Got Talent” and currently stand by my friend and Queen Gabrielle Union in her fight against oppression.”
  • His Jewish business partner loves him and sticks by him. Nick claims members of the Jewish community have reached out to him to show support. 
  • “I don’t blame any individual, I blame the oppressive and racist infrastructure. Systemic racism is what this world was built on and was the subject in which I was attempting to highlight in the recent clips that have been circulating from my podcast. If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholeheartedly apologize.”
