Chris Brown will be teaming up with Nick Cannon for the film She Ball this year, where Nick's character will be coaching an all-female basketball team. But some people don't like that Brown is involved because of his past with Rihanna and since the film is about women. It's something the Wild 'n Out creator responded to, and he also brought up another celebrity who's been accused of domestic violence.
"Why would they hate on it?" asked Nick while speaking to TMZ. "What about Sean Penn? They hate on him? "There's definitely a double standard. They want to turn a black man into a monster anytime they can."
Do you agree with Nick? Or is this an awkward time to make that argument, given that white actors like Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, and T.J. Miller are presently losing jobs because of past personal misconducts that never even made it to court?
Should everyone get a clean slate after enough time has passed?
