It is no secret that 50 Cent is not a fan of Nick Cannon, who has a long history of beef with his good friend Eminem. When it was announced that Cannon had been released by ViacomCBS for his anti-Semitic comments, Fif reacted by mocking Cannon.
50 Cent took to his usual Instagram account to poke fun of Mr.Cannon. Fif went on to caption a screenshot of Cannon and the headline stating he was fired. “👀Damn nikki what the f— was you on that stupid a– podcast talking about?🤔No More Wilding Out Hun! (Don’t worry Be Happy),” Fif wrote in the caption.
Comments made by Cannon on his podcast “Cannon’s Class” on June 30th led to the demise of his long relationship with ViacomCBS, the parent company of MTV and Nickelodeon.
During the episode, Cannon stated, “It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”
According to ViacomCBS, Cannon failing to “acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism”, was cause for his release. “We are committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds,” added ViacomCBS in a statement.
Although Cannon did Tweet stating he holds himself accountable and takes full responsibility, ViacomCBS was not satisfied as Cannon did not specify specifically what he was apologizing for.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding,” Tweeted Cannon. “Until then, I hold myself accountable for this moment and take full responsibility because My intentions are only to show that as a beautiful human species we have way more commonalities than differences, So let’s embrace those as well as each other. We All Family!”
Cannon losing his role as executive producer and chairman of TeenNick. As well as the host of and executive producer for MTV’s ‘Wild ‘N Out‘. As of this writing Cannon is still host for FOX’s ‘The Mask Singer‘.
