Nick Cannon is still dealing with the fallout from his comments about white and Jewish people after a June episode of his Cannon's Class with Professor Griff went viral this week.
Cannon said that white people lack compassion because they don't have melanin and to survive, must "rob, steal, rape, kill."
He also repeated several conspiracy theories about Jewish people owning the world and said that his opinions can't be anti-Semitic because "Semitic people are Black people."
ViacomCBS, who owns MTV and his show Wild n' Out, axed Cannon after calling his comments "hateful."
The Power 106 host then wrote a lengthy message on Facebook, demanding ownership of his show, while valuing it at $1 billion. Fox has since released a statement and said they'll keep Cannon as host of The Masked Singer after they spoke with him and he expressed remorse.
Some have shown support to Cannon after his firing, including Diddy who offered him a job with Revolt TV. Dwyane Wade also said he had Cannon's back and on Twitter wrote, "We are you with you. Keep leading!"
Wade received backlash for his message and was accused of co-signing Cannon's comments about white and Jewish people. So the retired hooper issued a message to explain himself.
I want to clarify my now deleted tweet. I was not supporting or condoning what Nick Cannon specifically said, but I had expressed my support of him owning the content and brand he helped create 🙏🏾— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 15, 2020
I was too quick to respond without being fully informed about his hurtful anti-Semitic remarks. As you all know I have ZERO tolerance for any hate speech!— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 15, 2020
Do you think Cannon's career will forever be tainted because of his comments or will people eventually forget and move on?
