Nick Cannon has come under fire following dialogue on his tradition, Cannon’s Class was known to comprise the racist and anti-Semitic language. On Tuesday, press giant ViacomCBS reacted to the episode by devoting their longrunning connection with the artist.
The June 30 episode, that was flagged with a Jewish writer on Sunday, included a 90-minute interview involving Cannon and former Public Enemy member Richard Griffin, best known by his stage name Professor Griff. From the meeting, Cannon made remarks which were said to disperse views of anti-Semitism.
ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any sort and we denounce all sorts of anti-Semitism. We’ve spoken with Nick Cannon concerning an episode of the podcast”Cannon’s Course” on YouTube, which encouraged hateful speech and disperse scattering conspiracy theories.
While we encourage continuing education and dialogue in the battle against bigotry, we’re deeply worried that Nick has failed to admit or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we’re terminating our relationship with him.
We are dedicated to doing better at our reaction to events of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have additional announcements on our attempts to fight hate of all types.
Cannon happened to Twitter on Monday to react to adverse criticism that he was getting online. “Anybody who knows me understands that I don’t have any hatred in my heart nor malice goals,” he wrote. “I don’t condone hate speech the spread of hateful rhetoric. We’re living in a time if it’s more important than ever to encourage understanding and unity.”
At a subsequent tweet, he called himself an”urge for people’s voices to be heard publicly, fairly and frankly.” He continued, “In the modern talk about anti-racism and social justice, I believe we all like myself should keep on teaching one another & adopt uncomfortable conversations it is the only way most of us get much better.”
In June, it had been announced he will be producing and starring in unscripted series Celebrity Call Center for its E! network. This autumn, he’s advised to start his own syndicated daytime talk show using Lionsgate branded Nick Cannon, premiering on Fox channels Sept. 21.
