Nick Cannon said DaBaby shouldn't be canceled for making homophobic comments at Rolling Loud Miami last month.

Cannon surely knows about angering people and nearly getting canceled, because he received plenty of backlash for making anti-Semitic statements on his Cannon's Class podcast last year.

"This is a moment where we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him because if we can do that, watch how many mentalities will change in the Hip Hop community," said Cannon on The Breakfast Club. "Was he wrong, though? Yeah, he was. But there are certain things about it that we've been trained to think that. Let's unpack that. Let's figure this out."

Cannon also spoke out against "mob rule."

It’s group think. It’s a mentality, it’s mob rule. Mob rule has never worked in any society, to where it’s like, ‘Oh well they did it! So we gotta do it. Even when I watched my process, where people I rocked with was like, ‘Man, well, they did, so we gotta follow suit.’ … This is a moment where we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him because if we can do that, watch how many mentalities will change in the hip-hop community.”

Should DaBaby be educated instead of canceled?
