Nick Cannon says white people are “Animals” and “Savages”, ViacomCBS fires him.
Nick Cannon says white people are “a little less,” “closer to animals,” “the true savages,” “acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil.”
Mr Cannon is currently a hot trending topic on Twitter after a video of his “Cannon’s Class” podcast has surfaced where he refers to white people as “animals” and “savages” has gone viral.
Professor Griff was the episode’s guest.
Following the video, several white people began calling for Nick’s cancellation, he posted a statement via Twitter to explain his comments stating:
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding.”
A rep from ViacomCBS released a statement stating:
“ViacomCBS 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.
“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. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds.”
