As previously reported, ViacomCBS terminated its decades-long relationship with Nick Cannon after he propagated anti-semitic rhetoric on his podcast which feature Public Enemy’s Professor Griff.
Nick made a statement to social media to respond, blasting the network for its decision on firing him. Along with demanding for the rights of the brand and name of his tv show WILD’N OUT.
He says he’s “deeply saddened” the company “misused an important moment for us to all grow closer together and learn more about one another” and claims it’s trying to “make an example of an outspoken black man.”
Nick continues to say,
“I honestly can’t believe that Viacom has such poor council that would allow them to make such a divisive decision in the midst of protests and civil uprising within our current pandemic. Truly an unwise decision.”
He did offer a semi-apology, but also demands
“full ownership of my billion-dollar ‘Wild ‘N Out’ brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership! I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!”
