Nick Cannon Apologizes For Jewish Comments, Disappointing Fans

07/16/2020

Fans are "Wild N Out" over Nick Cannon's latest apology for his "anti-Semitic" comments on a June 30 episode of his podcast, Cannons Class. The video has since been removed.

Cannon's apology comes a day after he issued an initial statement on Facebook Wednesday morning, where he stated he would "not be silenced or bullied" for his remarks. He also called out ViacomCBS, claiming that the network "does not understand or respect the power of the Black community."

After working with Cannon for over two decades, including on his hit show Wild N Out, ViacomCBS announced on Tuesday they were severing ties with him for refusing to acknowledge his "anti-Semitic" comments on his podcast.

"You can't be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people," he said during the segment. "We are the same people who they want to be. That's our birthright." 

Cannon also mentioned Illuminati conspiracy theories surrounding the thirteen top family bloodlines, the notoriously wealthy Rothschild family, and the six media corporations which include Viacom.

Fans were ready to go to war for Nick Cannon and flooded Viacom's Twitter with the hashtags #BoycottViacom and #IStandWithNickCannon.

However, fans changed course after Cannon issued an apology on his Instagram story, Twitter, and Facebook, claiming that his statements were "hateful propaganda and stereotypical rhetoric."

Some fans immediately called the television host a "sellout," and expressed their disappointment over his apology and subsequent removal of the controversial interview. 

Others believed Cannon was being forced to apologize and questioned if he was even issuing the apology, noting that his Instagram was wiped clean of certain material.

Still, many fans still support Cannon despite his sudden change of heart. 

As the war seas part, for now, the fate of Wild N Out remains up in the air.
