Rapper/mogul Diddy has come to the defense of Nick Cannon.

On Tuesday night, Cannon was fired from hosting his show Wild ‘N Out by Viacom for making several racially insensitive, anti-semitic remarks where he called black people the “true Hebrews” and praised the controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on his Youtube show.

“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,” “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.”

On Wednesday Diddy took to Twitter to invite Cannon to come join him over at Revolt TV.

The Diddy-owned Revolt TV was recently in the news for hosting Minister Farrakhan on the 4th of July in a speech that saw the 87-year-old Nation of Islam leader calling the head of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, “Satan.”.

“Mr. Greenblatt, you are Satan. Those of you that say that you’re Jews, I will not even give you the honor of calling you a Jew. You are not a Jew… you are Satan and it is my job now to pull the cover off of Satan so that every Muslim when he sees Satan, pick up a stone, as we do in Mecca,” F

Videos of Farrakhan’s Revolt TV speech were eventually removed by Youtube for violating the site’s hate speech policy.

It’s currently unclear if Cannon, who is currently fighting Viacom for ownership of Wild ‘N Out, will take Diddy up on his offer.
