Former Wild’N’Out host Nick Cannon isn’t going down without a fight.

Last month Cannon was fired from the show that he helped create after he initially refused to apologize for making several anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on his podcast and YouTube show, Cannon’s Class.

Now Cannon is going on the offensive and is planning to sue the media conglomerate to pay him the “billions of dollars in revenue to Viacom since 2015.”

Here’s a statement from Cannon’s team that was sent to the Shade Room

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 in equality.”

“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 billion brand.”

Cannon has apologized several times for his remarks he made on his podcast after getting fired but it seems like Viacom isn’t interested in rekindling their relationship with him.
