After getting fired for remarks that were deemed hateful and anti-semitic and refusing to apologize, Nick Cannon has issued a long-winded and defiant statement.
At the end, Cannon writes:
But now I am the one making demands. I demand 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!
ViacomCBS said a recent episode of his podcast Cannon’s Class “promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
As reported by TCO, during a controversial podcast where he’s joined by Professor Griff, formerly of Public Enemy, Cannon claimed white people are “a little less” due to a lack of melanin can only act in “evil.” Cannon claims “They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive.” Cannon also calls white people “closer to animals” and “the ones that are actually the true savages.”
Cannon also said things that were clearly anti Semitic in nature.
People are leaving out pretty much the entire fucking anti Semitic part of what Nick Cannon said. Perpetuating the conspiracy that Jews control the media, government, or economy is extremely harmful and anti Semitic.

This is one segment in the podcast that led Cannon to be fired.
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." When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8
