Nick Cannon has been fired from ViacomCBS for refusing to apologize for anti-Semitic comments made during his podcast.
The media giant made the announcement Tuesday, according to USA Today, after Cannon claimed that “the Semitic people are Black people” on a June episode of “Cannon’s Class.” He also touched on several anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Viacom said in a statement obtained by the outlet that “Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize” for his anti-Semitic notions.
“ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” the statement reads, USA Today reported. “We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
Adding, “While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him.”
ViacomCBS has ended their relationship with Nick Cannon after his comments about white people were perceived as “anti-semitic”.
