Nick Cannon called white people “evil, rapists, and savages” on his YouTube podcast.
Now, he has lost his high-paying jobs with ViacomCBS after they fired him for his controversial anti-white remarks that have also been branded anti-Semitic. The little-watch YouTube program, “Cannon Class,” released the controversial episode two weeks ago and has now gone viral for all the wrong reasons putting a halt to Cannon’s career as a host and talk personality.
The episode featured Public Enemy member Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin, who was a member of the rap group Public Enemy.
He lost his job with the rap group all the way back in 1989 after he said Jews were “wicked.” During the course of the 90-minute podcast conversation between Cannon and Griffin, the pair of men argue that Black people are the real Hebrews and that Jews have stolen their identity for centuries.
Cannon was working as the host of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” and the MTV series “Wild ‘N Out,” until he dove deep into anti-Semitic storylines that pass through years of history. He said, “going as deep as the Rothschilds, centralized banking, the 13 families, the bloodlines that control everything even outside of America.”
During the lengthy conversation, Cannon and Griffin discussed the ideology of the Black Hebrew Israelites. They talked about how “Semitic” is a term that has nothing to do with being white and that people throw around the term “anti-Semitic” to divide groups of people who truly belong within that identity.
“You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews,” Cannon said.
The language throughout the 90-minute podcast grew more intense as Cannon continued speaking. He went on to say that white people of the past were the “true savages” because of the “barbaric” behavior they exhibited when colonizing the world. He added that they lacked “compassion” because of something as arbitrary as melanin in the skin that produces certain skin color.
“And I’m going to say this carefully…,” Cannon said before saying that white people who don’t have as much melanin in their cells are a “little less.”
“They’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency,” he said. “So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil.”
“They’re the ones that are actually closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages,” Cannon said, before clarifying that he was talking about “Jewish people, white people, Europeans” and others.
ViacomCBS quickly fired Nick Cannon once his podcast episode gained attention.
“ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind, and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” the company said in a statement. “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.”
Cannon believes that his former employer is on the wrong side of history.
