Nick Cannon Demands Apology From ViacomCBS, Ownership of Wild ‘N OutFranchise After Firing!! Nick Cannon is demanding an apology from ViacomCBS — as well as full ownership of the “billion-dollar” Wild ‘N Out brand — after being fired by the conglomerate for, as they put it, promoting “hateful speech” and “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories” on his podcast.
Cannon, who also hosts Fox’s Masked Singer, was let go by ViacomCBS on Tuesday, just days after an episode of the Cannon’s Class podcast went viral for alluding to several prominent anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. Explaining the decision, a rep for ViacomCBS said in part, “We have spoken to Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast… which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Cannon’s Facebook posting also recounts his decades-long partnership with Viacom, which began at Nickelodeon as a writer and cast member on All That and eventually led to the 2005 creation of the long-running hip-hop improv show Wild ‘N Out, “an idea which I self-financed out my own pocket and presented to MTV.” After creating a “billion-dollar brand that expanded across a multitiered empire,” Cannon claims that “my ownership of [Wild ‘N Out] was swindled away from me.”
Cannon eventually calls for an apology and “full ownership” of the Wild ‘N Outfranchise.
“I demand full ownership of my billion dollar Wild ‘N Out brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership!” he says. “I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!”
ViacomCBS says Nick Cannon's claim that he reached out to Shari Redstone after making anti-semitic comments is "absolutely untrue" https://t.co/cqLnQf61CK— Variety (@Variety) July 15, 2020
