Nick Cannon supporters angry he’s been fired, some claim he stated facts

Per PageSix, ViacomCBS has terminated its relationship with Nick Cannon following an episode of “Cannon’s Class” in which he made anti-Semitic remarks.

“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,” said a spokeswoman for the company.

“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.”

ViacomCBS is the parent company of MTV and TeenNick. Cannon, 39, served as chairman of the latter network and hosted MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out.”

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.”

Now Nick Cannon supporters are sounding off on Twitter, with some of them claiming he stated facts and said nothing wrong.

Here is a sample:

Damn Nick Cannon gets fired in 1.5 seconds for stating facts and speaking his mind. How y’all act quicker on firing a black man from a tv show than you would a black man or woman being killed by police?

Damn Nick said everything that are basically facts. But ain’t know one wanna own up at viacomCBS. I bet everyone is white there, cause they don’t wanna show there white privledge. They wanna silence nick, so he doesn’t say the things about white people us melanin people already –

What did @NickCannon say wrong again??? Isn’t this true??Where I’d the hate speech?

Damn, Nick Cannon got fired within hours for exercising his right to freedom of speech, meanwhile the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor are still free and fully employed.

He says white people “had” to be savages because they didn’t have what we do. Is that NOT why they came to Africa and stole people to use them as slaves? Someone help me with this whole Damn Nick thing because he’s not lying.
