Nick Cannon posted cryptic messages Friday amid massive backlash over what some has called anti-Semitic remarks made on his podcast, “Cannon Class,” and the apology that followed days after.
Cannon tweeted, “I hurt an entire community, and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse.”
He followed up with the tweet that read, “Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth.”
His last tweet seems a little eerie; as he tweeted, “Y’all can have this planet. I’m out!”
The controversy started when Cannon appeared with Public Enemy member, Professor Griff, on Nick Cannon’s podcast, “Cannon’s Class,” where he commented that Black people as the “true Hebrews.”
Shortly after the video release, Viacom ended their long-standing relationship with Cannon due to the anti-Semitic remarks. In return, Cannon demanded full ownership of his Wild’N Out brand while gaining support from RevoltTv; however, Cannon eventually decided to apologize to the Jewish community.
“I must apologize to my Jewish Brothers and Sisters for putting them in such a painful position, which was never my intention, but I know this whole situation has hurt many people. Together, we will make it right,” he wrote. “I have dedicated my daily efforts to continuing conversations to bring the Jewish Community and the African American community closer together, embracing our differences and sharing our commonalities.”
After initially getting backlash for the anti-Semitic remarks, he began getting backlash from the black community for apologizing.
Social media believes Nick tweets could a sign he might harm himself. So, in our prayers, let’s keep Nick as he has been very vocal in this fight for justice for Black people.
