Rapper 50 Cent couldn’t help himself from commenting on the Nick Cannon situation.
On his Youtube show “Cannon’s Class”, Cannon repeatedly references several anti-semitic conspiracy theories about Jewish people controlling “everything” including the banks. The actor/comedian went on to say that white people are “closer to animals” and are “savages” because they lack melanin.
Nick Cannon says white people are "a little less," "closer to animals," "the true savages," "acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil." When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8

After initially refusing to apologize for his comments, Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS.
ViacomCBS said that it reached out to Nick Cannon and was "deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism."
They have effectively fired him from his longrunning VH1 show "Wild 'N Out." https://t.co/WqO8C3gfGG

“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.”
50 Cent took to Instagram to troll Cannon for getting fired.
“Damn nikki what the fuck was you on that stupid ass podcast talking about?”. “No More Wilding Out Hun! (Don’t worry Be Happy).”
