Another major ignorant Hollywood celebrity, Nick Cannon, opened his big mouth and spewed racist rhetoric.
Nick Cannon Goes Off
Viacom CBS cut ties with Cannon after he made vulgar anti-White and anti-Semitic comments on his podcast. On a recent episode of the actor’s podcast, the “Cannon’s Class,” he had on controversial hip hop star Professor Griff. Cannon went off on bizarre anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and called Black people the “true Hebrews.”
“It’s never hate speech. You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” he said. “When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”
Yikes… Nick Cannon has gone full black supremacist.
This is 100% certified racist. 🤦🏿♂️ https://t.co/rGgVATPvNk

CBS Makes Nick Cannon Go Bye-Bye
Viacom CBS has had a decades-long relationship with Cannon but announced on Tuesday that he got canned.
A CBS spokesperson told CNN that the company “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,” the statement read.
“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. Viacom CBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds,” the statement concluded.
Cannon’s Black Supremacy Tirade
Despite the mainstream media’s lack of covering the issue, Cannon also made disgusting comments towards people with light skin and called them “the true savages.”
“When we talk about the power of melanated people,” he said on the program. “Melanin is so powerful, connects us in a way, that the reason why they fear blacks is because of the lack that they have of it.”
“When you see a person that has a lack of pigment, a lack of melanin, they fear that they will be annihilated,” he said. “So, therefore, however they got the power, they had a lack of compassion. Melanin comes with compassion, melanin comes with soul. We call it soul. You know soul brothers and sisters. That’s the melanin that connects us. So the people that don’t have it, and I’m going to say this carefully, are a little less.”
“They had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough environments, so they’re acting as animals,” he said. “So they are the ones that are actually closer to animals, they are the ones that are actually the true savages.”
Cannon Plays the Victim
Instead of taking responsibility for his significant racist comments, Cannon attacked Viacom CBS for firing him, Breitbart News reported.
“Instead the moment was stolen and highjacked to make an example of an outspoken black man,” he said. “I will not be bullied, silenced, or continuously oppressed by any organization, group, or corporation. I am disappointed that Viacom does not understand or respect the power of the black community.”
Cannon also highly praised the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The Muslim has referred to Jews as “termites,” members of the “Synagogue of Satan,” and claimed that Jesus called the Jews “the children of the devil.”
Nick Cannon is just another out of touch, racists multi-millionaire celebrity who lacks any ounce of taking self-responsibility. His comments reflect that.
