Nick Cannon And His Legal Team Plans To Sue ViacomCBS For $1.5 Billion, His Rep Denies

Nick Cannon is ready to fight back against Viacom for Wild’N Out. The company canceled his show for what Viacom believed was “anti-Semitics” views he shared during his podcast, “Cannon’s Class.” During the episode, which featured rapper Professor Griff, Cannon stated, “Blacks] are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”

As reported by The Shade Room, Nick Cannon and his legal partners are planning on taking ViacomCBS to court with a lawsuit of $1.5 billion. “It is just that simple, ‘Wild’N Out belongs to Nick!” his team reportedly expressed in a statement. “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 to move forward inequality.”

However, Cannon’s camp denies all allegations of Nick Cannon prepping to sue Viacom. On Wednesday (Aug. 12) the New York Daily News reported that those massive legal action are “inaccurate.” 

“Nick’s focus right now is on unifying communities and combatting bigotry, racism and hate of all kinds, not seeking personal financial gain.“
