Nick Cannon is swinging back after being fired from ViacomCBS for discussing anti-Semitic theories on his podcast, Cannon’s Class. The TV host and personality is even demanding an apology from the TV conglomerate for dismissing him from the show he created, Wild ‘N Out, and also wants complete ownership of the series.
Cannon began trending Tuesday afternoon after a video of him talking to former Public Enemy member, Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin, went viral. The two discussed a wide range of topics, including violence at the hands of White people and a theory purported by the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan.
Griffin, who was dismissed from his legendary rap group for making anti-Semitic comments, went on to say the theory: that the Semitic people and language are not connected to White people and that it was impossible for a Black person to be anti-Semitic. Cannon said that Black people were the “true Hebrews” during the conversation.
In his official response, the comedian fired back and made demands about the empire he built from the ground up, especially pertaining to Wild N' Out.
Titled "Truth and Reconciliation," Cannon's post on Facebook gets a lot off his chest.
