Nick Cannon made some shocking anti-Semitic comments that even managed to get all The View ladies agreeing that his remarks were ‘evil’ and that happens pretty rarely! In other words, Whoopi, Joy, Sunny as well as Meghan, they all agreed the singer needs to be held ‘accountable’ for his unacceptable stance.
Whoopi Goldberg argued that ‘You can’t be starting on people for their religion, just as people shouldn’t be starting on us for our color. I don’t know what’s going on. If it’s just ‘Oh, I didn’t know. I don’t know history.’ If you don’t know history, don’t say anything.’
This comes after Nick Cannon chose to talk about some offensive Jewish conspiracy theories on the latest episode of Cannon’s Class, with Richard Griffin, aka Professor Griff, who was previously expelled from Public Enemy over an old interview from 1989 during which he made serious anti-Semitic remarks.
During their conversation, both Nick Cannon and Professor Griff claimed that Jewish people use the concept of anti-Semitism as a way to create ‘division’ and even disempower Black people!
Then, they argued that it’s time for the Black community to reclaim the word ‘Semitic.’
After causing outrage on social media, Nick still insisted that he was not being anti-Semitic in spite of the backlash.
Another The View co-host, Sunny Hostin, went on to share her opinion on this, saying that ‘I’m always surprised when you hear someone, especially someone who’s African American, spout anti-Semitism. There’s such a long history of Jewish people in the Civil Rights movement being such allies to African Americans… I’m disappointed when I hear something like that from Nick Cannon. I think it’s unacceptable, and I think he needs to be held accountable for it.’
Even Meghan McCain, who has made it clear time and time again that she is against ‘cancel culture,’ is all for Nick Cannon getting fired for his words.

Finally, Joy Behar did not hold anything back!
She told Nick: ‘Look who the enemy is, Nick. Look who the enemy is. It is not your Jewish brother. Get smart, get some education and read up on it. Otherwise, shut up,’ and when McCain pointed out Nick just graduated from Harvard, Joy tried to rationalize his stance by saying that ‘The only answer I have, then, is that he’s just an evil person. Because if we reads history and watches films about WWII, then he would not say such stupid things. So something’s wrong with him. He needs to examine his brain.’
