Ok so let's recap for those who are out of the loop with Nick Cannon’s latest controversial firing from Viacom CBS. So here is what went down, Nick was let go from Viacom who hosted many of the networks TV shows. The reason why Nick was let go was due to his alleged ant-Semitic comments during his ‘Cannon’s Class’ podcast during his 90-minute discussion with Professor Griff, a former Public Enemy member
CBS Viacom affirmed in a public statement;
“CBS Viacom condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” vilifying the podcast’s episode as “hateful speech” and “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
A rather lengthy apology yet defensive statement from Nick Cannon was released via Facebook;
“I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused an important moment for us to all grow closer together and learn more about one another. Instead, the moment was stolen and hijacked to make an example of an outspoken black man. I will not be bullied, silenced, or continuously oppressed by any organization, group, or corporation. I am disappointed that Viacom does not understand or respect the power of the black community." He concludes the long post saying, “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! 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!”
It didn’t stop there, NIck is not going to let what he has worked so hard for be taken away by the network. The Shade Room released the news that Nick will be suing the network for the approximate worth of 'Wild N Out’, which is 1.5 Billion, yep you heard right, this will be one heck of a lawsuit.
NIck’s team affirmed to ‘The Shade Room’ exclusively;
"It is just that simple, 'Wild'N Out belongs to Nick!," "The show was created by Nick Cannon with his idea and original thought. Wild' N Out has brought billions of dollars in revenue to Viacom since 2015. And Nick deserves and has earned everything it is worth."
"From the platforms, he provides for other entertainers, the jobs he creates for black youth, the time he gives to mentoring incarcerated men and women, to the money he gives back and puts into communities, homelessness, and people less fortunate. He is constantly evolving both spiritually and mentally, as well as, taking action in learning, education, and bridging the gap within the Jewish and African American communities so that it will allow us to build relationships, work together and learn from each other in order to move forward inequality.”
“If Viacom believes in growth, equality, education, then Viacom will do what is right and pay Nick what they owe, and giving him his $1.5 brand.”
Nick’s team exclusively told TSR that the money will aim that the money that rightfully belongs to Nick in which they will fight for in court will be donated and invested towards a brighter education for underprivileged communities, “creating psychological programs, youth organizations, and developing inner-city communities.”
