    Nick Cannon Demands Full Ownership of ‘Wild ‘N Out,’ Says ViacomCBS on ‘Wrong Side of History’ BBnOeZu

    From Naman Ramachandran of Variety Magazine

    Actor and TV host Nick Cannon has hit out at ViacomCBS, hours after he was dropped by the media giant for making anti-Semitic comments on his podcast.

    Cannon has asked for ownership of his MTV and VH1 series Wild ‘N Out, as well as an apology from the company.

    In a lengthy statement posted to his Facebook page early Wednesday, Cannon wrote, “If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholeheartedly apologize. But now I am the one making demands. 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!”

    In the post, which is titled ‘Truth and Reconciliation,’ Cannon began by noting he is “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 highjacked [sic] 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 continued.

    The performer alleges that ViacomCBS recently banned “all advertisement that supported George Floyd and Breonna Taylor who we are still seeking justice for.” Cannon also claims he personally reached out to ViacomCBS chair Shari Redstone “to have a conversation of reconciliation and actually apologize if I said anything that pained or hurt her or her community,” and received no response.

    Cannon goes on to list his achievements over the last 20 years, including executive producing and hosting FOX’s The Masked Singer.

    “My hope and original goal was to use this moment to show healing and acceptance and prayed that Viacom would use their powers for good,” said Cannon.

    “Instead I am now receiving death threats, hate messages calling me an ungrateful [N—] and beyond. Viacom’s goal to keep me from providing for my family and lineage will be foiled. They can try to kick me while I’m down or force me to kiss the master’s feet in public for shame and ridicule, but instead I stand firm on my square with my fist in the air repeating my mantra, ‘You can’t fire a Boss!'”

    More follows.
