Nick Cannon Quits 'America's Got Talent' After NBC Considers Firing Him Over a Joke

Nick Cannon has announced that he will not be returning to America’s Got Talent after eight years as the NBC series’ host.

The 36-year-old entertainer recently made a joke about NBC during one of his standup comedy shows and the network was reportedly considering firing him as it was a “breach of contract.”

“I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous mindset. After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke,” Nick started off a lengthy letter on his Facebook account. “This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my ‘team’ that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment.”

Nick went on to say how there is “no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity” before saying that he does not see himself returning for this summer’s upcoming season.

“Not to get too detailed but this isn’t the first time executives have attempted to ‘put me in my place’ for so called unruly actions. I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head,” he wrote.

VIDEO: Nick Cannon Weighs In on Mariah Carey's New Year's Eve Performance

Nick Cannon makes an appearance on The Ellen Show, airing later today, where he speaks about a variety of topics including wearing a turban, his recent hospitalization, his upcoming baby boy, and Mariah‘s New Year’s Eve performance.

“You know me, I’m a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that!” Nick joked about Mariah‘s performance. “They set her up! That was a distraction!”

“Anyone who knows about performing and having inner-ears, things like that can go wrong on live television…I screw up on America’s Got Talent all the time. So when there’s people in your ear saying things and stuff, I think she got a little flustered,” Nick said. “Being the diva that she is, she said, ‘I’m just going to walk around and pose for 7 minutes.’ And like Ryan Seacrest said, she can do no wrong. So she worked through it.”

FYI: Nick is wearing a Tribe Kelley tee and Timberland x Foot Locker boots.
