Nick Cannon Defends Himself After Being Fired From ViacomCBS, Demands an Apology

Nick Cannon is defending himself.

The 39-year-old star, who was fired from ViacomCBS for anti-Semitic commentary, took to Facebook on Wednesday (July 15) to defend himself against the allegation that he “promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”

He demanded “full ownership of my billion dollar Wild ‘N Out brand that I created,” asking for an end to “the hate and back door bullying” – and an apology.

“I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused an important moment for us to all grow closer together and learn more about one another. Instead the moment was stolen and highjacked to make an example of an outspoken black man,” he said.

He said he even reached out to ViacomCBS chair Shari Redstone “to have a conversation of reconciliation and actually apologize if I said anything that pained or hurt her or her community,” but was met with silence.

However, according to THR, a rep for the exec says that claim is “absolutely untrue.”

Nick Cannon Dropped by ViacomCBS for Anti-Semitic Commentary

Nick Cannon has been dropped by ViacomCBS.

The 39-year-old star’s relationship with the network was ended after he made anti-Semitic comments on his podcast, during the June 30 episode of Cannon’s Class, Variety reported Tuesday (July 14).

During the episode, he interview rapper Professor Griff who was a part of Public Enemy before leaving due to anti-Semitic remarks.

Nick said Black people are the “true Hebrews,” and discussed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories regarding the Rothschild family.

“It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews,” he said.

A ViacomCBS spokesperson released a statement.

“ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him. We are committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds,” they said.

He recently said he “can’t hold a candle” to this person in his life.

Nick then took to social media to apologize for his words. See his tweets…

Nick Cannon Says He 'Can't Hold A Candle To' Ex-Wife Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon is opening up about his marriage to Mariah Carey, which started in 2008 and officially ended in 2016.

In a new interview with Variety, the 39-year-old entertainer spoke about their decision to tie the knot only after a few weeks of dating, welcoming their twins, Monroe and Morocan, and what he still thinks of her now.

“We talked everything out. What if this and what if that. We talked about how much fun it would be if we just got married three weeks into knowing each other. It was more that whimsical fantasy idea of let’s have as much fun as we possibly can and when it no longer feels like fun, when it feels like a task and a job, then we should amicably be able to move on,” Nick said.

He adds, “I always used to say it [the relationship] worked so well because it was a healthy balance. I had no problem falling back. It was never a competition with me. It was like ‘I’ll turn mine off so she can turn hers on.’ I was comfortable in myself and who I was.”

Nick also revealed that he and Mariah weren’t the couple you would catch in a fight.

“I can’t ever remember us having arguments and there being negative energy of ‘This isn’t working’ and all of that stuff. We had very sensible conversations,” Nick said.

To this day, Nick still admires Mariah and has an amicable relationship with her.

“I mean, it’s Mariah Carey. How am I supposed to be?” he shared. “She’s one of the most talented women to ever this planet. I can’t hold a candle to that woman.”

Nick Cannon Says His Children 'Fear Police' - Watch (Video)

Nick Cannon is getting candid about his children in the wake of George Floyd‘s murder and global protests against police brutality and systemic racism.

The 39-year-old Masked Singer host spoke out in an interview with Access.

“My children fear police. I try to teach fearlessness. I try to teach, ‘You have a power within you that you need to fear nothing.’ But when they see the energy of law enforcement [it's like], ‘Uh oh, here comes the police,’” he revealed.

“So that mindset of, ‘Sit up straight and don’t talk, keep your hands where they can see them’ — these are things that I’m talking to a 3-year-old about [and] 9-year-olds about; they bring those questions to me,” he went on to say.

Nick is the father to 3-year-old son Golden with ex Brittany Bell and 9-year-old twins with ex Mariah Carey, Moroccan Scott and Monroe.

“It’s something that’s hurtful to have those conversations with your children, but you want to protect them at the end of the day,” he went on to say.

He also reflected on his own thoughts about police growing up.

“It wasn’t about safety, it was like, ‘Somebody’s in trouble.’ It’s never been a good experience,” he recalled.

“And that’s why I say we gotta rethink and restructure what law enforcement is, specifically in our communities. Law enforcement should be from the community. There was a time when we were able to ‘police’ our own, and have sovereignty…and when we have the ability to self-govern and have a strong moral compass that comes from your community, you shouldn’t have to have someone overseeing you,” he continued.

Here’s how to help support the Black Lives Matter cause.

Nick Cannon Supports Gabrielle Union In 'AGT' Workplace Controversy

Former host of America’s Got Talent Nick Cannon is sticking by Gabrielle Union‘s side in the show’s workplace controversy.

In a new interview with VLADTV, Nick was asked about his thoughts on the matter, and revealed his idea of what the problem truly is.

“It was some eye-opening events that occurred that really shed light on some cultural insensitivities – ultimately, when it comes to women, when it comes to how the show is produced,” he shared. “I believe, as a producer – I was over at AGT for a damn near decade – you kinda see these things as a giant machine, but if you really take the time to step back, you see some things that are truly not fair… It’s an institutional issue.”

Nick also talked about how current host, Terry Crews, should’ve supported Gabrielle from the start, in the same way others believed him about his sexual assault.

“I love Terry Crews, but it gets to that place… again it’s an institutional thing, so I’m not blaming him. We get excited about the occupation, we get excited to work for the man and we gon’ defend the man cause he gave me a job. It don’t matter what you saw because I stood firmly by him when my former agent accosted him…”

Nick adds, “Especially when it comes to our queens, when it comes to Gabby, I don’t care. Whatever she said, if it happened, I’m rocking with you.”

If you missed it, Terry opened up about the alleged racism on the set of the show, and Gabrielle called him out for it.

Nick Cannon Responds to Orlando Brown's Claim That They Engaged in Sexual Activity

Nick Cannon is addressing Orlando Brown‘s claims that he performed oral sex on the former That’s So Raven actor.

A video surfaced on WorldStarHipHop on Wednesday (January 22) in which Orlando, 32, claims the 39-year-old Masked Singer host gave him oral sex.

“Fine, you want me to tell everybody? You want me to let everybody know? Okay, fine. Nick, I let you suck my d–k,” Orlando claimed in the video. “I let Nick suck my d–k… Everybody knows you did it as a female. But, Nick you sucked my d–k. Nick been sucking d–k.”

It’s unclear what prompted Orlando to make these claims against Nick.

After the video surfaced, Nick took to Instagram to address the claims – and says he sees it as a cry for help from Orlando.

“When I first saw this I thought it was f–king hilarious!!!! 🤣🍆💦😂😂😂 But then after putting a little cognitive effort and analytical thought to the situation, I figured what a great opportunity for a ‘teachable moment’!” Nick started. “First off let me say I am praying for the young brother Orlando even though I don’t really know him personally, I have always loved and enjoyed his talent and have been a fan of his past work. He was f–king brilliant in Major Payne, and had us all laughing on ‘Thats So Raven’.”

“But this is another crucial example of when we allow our young artists to be prematurely exposed by this demonic business and left out to fend for themselves. We need better support systems for our youth and take care of our own,” Nick continued. “I watched various of this young brothers videos and all I see is a cry out for help. So I don’t know if there are any real leaders or solid individuals in this young man’s life but let’s embrace him and tighten him up so he doesn’t become another lost victim to these hollywood circumstances.”

Nick went on to say he believes Orlando is a victim of the Hollywood lifestyle that many young celebs get sucked in to before slamming the media for pinning celebs against each other just for “click bait.”

“I indeed believe this brother has the God given talent to be on Wildnout but this definitely ain’t the way to audition, this actually hurts my heart to see that we have allowed Orlando, along with various other young gifted performers we grew up loving, to just dwindle away after these corporations made their billions off of them. Nick continued. “Now due to substance abuse and diagnosed psychiatric disorders our loved ones are now aimlessly begging for the attention they were once given , instead of the help they actually need. All while we sit back and just laugh.”

“The most irresponsible parties involved in all of this is our media, specifically the ‘culturally conscious’. For us to continue to post slander and tear one another down for click bait to make these white supremacy propagated platforms more money is asinine and deplorable,” Nick concluded. “These cannibalistic tactics only destroy ‘Us’. Really, in post like this, who wins??? We might chuckle, joke, pass the gossip on through our low frequency vibrations but does it truly make you feel good??? Especially knowing that there are higher powers looking down at you. So I hold @iheartradio @complex @worldstar accountable!…”
