Nick Cannon has been doing business with ViacomCBS for 15 years by partnering with them to produce his comedy show, “Wild n Out.” But that relationship is now over, due to comments made on his podcast, “Cannon’s Class.” Cannon was interviewing Professional Griff of the old Hip Hop group, Public Enemy.
Labeled as antisemitic, ViacomCBS released a statement about Cannon’s firing, “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” the company said in a statement Tuesday. It is terminating its relationship with Cannon.”
After the news of Cannon’s release, support from various celebrities such as Sean Combs voiced their support on social media, “the only way we can change the narrative, educate, and uplift each other is if we do it together. Nick, my brother, I am here to support you fully in any way you need.”
Combs continued on, “What we are not going to do is turn our backs on our brothers and sisters when they challenge the system. Come home to @REVOLTTV, which is truly BLACK OWNED! We got your back and love you and what you have done for the culture.”
