Fans of Nick Cannon were shocked to see that the host of Wild’N’Out was dropped from ViacomCBS for comments he made on a podcast. Hot New Hip Hop said today that Mr. Cannon was fired due to comments he made during Cannon Class.
During a chat with Professor Griff, Mr. Cannon made anti-semitic remarks and also targeted white people. He claimed the latter were the real “savages” and were much “closer to animals” than any other race. Nick’s response didn’t help the situation either.
According to the outlet, Nick’s apology wasn’t much of an apology, and fans weren’t happy as a result. Subsequently, ViacomCBS dropped a statement in which they revealed they were terminating their relationship with him for good.
The partnership between ViacomCBS and Nick has persisted since the 1990s. Cannon asked for the rights of Wild N Out following his termination, which seemed like a stretch to many on social media. Of course, the hip-hop community’s biggest satirist, 50 Cent, couldn’t help himself but troll Nick right away.
Mr. Curtis Jackson, also known as 50 Cent, then shared a parody poster of a show called Out Wild, starring Michael Blackson. You can see what 50 Cent posted in the Instagram post from The Shade Room below:
In response to 50 Cent’s joke, Nick Cannon quickly clapped back with a quote from “Wanksta,” and also insinuated the proposed series was like The Game signing to G-Unit Records. Cannon wrote on his account that “it be your own people!”
He went on to claim that it was like when The Game came in and “took over G-Unit.” Nick then insinuated that 50 Cent’s time to shine in the industry has long been over. He said 50 Cent was “the man in high school.”
As it was previously reported, Nick was dropped from his long relationship with ViacomCBS. The incident has been all over the entertainment news headlines ever since the news was revealed.
This is otherwise bad news for Cannon, who recently graduated from Howard University. Previously, he was in the headlines for his one-sided feud with Eminem.
