“I feel ashamed”: Nick Cannon apologizes for his “anti-Semitic” comments towards a community

In today’s news, American superstar Nick Cannon (Nicholas Scott Cannon) apologizes for his anti-semantic comments toward the Jewish community.

The 39-year-old actor, rapper, comedian, and TV host was beneath hearth for a week after performing on a podcast calling white and Jewish “savages”. He also suggested that they “lack compassion” because they don’t have melanin on their skin.

During that recent podcast, he mentioned conspiracy theories about Jewish humans and praised a minister infamous for anti-Jewish comments. This resulted in ViacomCBS firing him for making those insensitive remarks. ViacomCBS is the main organization of MTV and the cable channel for TeenNick; both prominently showcased Cannon for years on specific platforms. It looks like they are a little harsh on the guy, but they may have their reasons for it.

His words were broken into a very serious and overwhelming apology. He also mentioned that he felt ashamed of the places where his words came from. Following which he removed the video of the interview.

Based on his apology, Fox announced that his role as a host for three seasons on The Masked Singer will not be terminated as of now. “We were made aware of Nick Cannon’s interview with Richard Griffin on YouTube and began straight away to have a word with Nick,” read Fox’s statement.

“He is clear and remorseful that his words were wrong. They lacked understanding as well as context and inadvertently promoted hate. This was important for us to observe.” Well, it’s all about accepting mistakes, unlearning wrong actions, and providing second chances to do better.

He persevered to say, “On my podcast, I used phrases and referenced literature assuming it to be factual to uplift my community. Instead, it became hateful propaganda and stereotypical rhetoric that pained another community. For this I am deeply sorry, however now together we can write a new chapter of healing.”

On the other hand, ViacomCBS is yet to reply to Cannon’s apology.
