Hollywood actor Nick Cannon is ready for a much-needed vacation. The hip-hop entertainer has come forward to lash out at the hate and anger coming his way from the Black community following an open apology he issued toward the Jewish people.

Nick Cannon x Done-Done

On Friday, Cannon went to Twitter and spoke out on being done appeasing everyone. Nick also took things a step further and said he was ultimately done with the entire planet.

“I hurt an entire community and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth🙏🏾💙 … Y’all can have this planet. I’m out!” -Nick Cannon’s Twitter

High-Key Details

Prior to Nick airing out his frustrations, he went to social media with an open apology. He specifically apologized to the Jewish community for making what some people felt were anti-Semitic comments during a podcast.

Wait, There’s More

Earlier in the week, Nick Cannon went to Facebook to request full ownership of his long running ‘Wild ‘N Out’ brand. He also called out ViacomCBS for bullying him and apologized for his previous comments.

“As for Viacom, who is now on the wrong side of history, I will continue to pray for you. I don’t blame any individual, I blame the oppressive and racist infrastructure. Systemic racism is what this world was built on and was the subject in which I was attempting to highlight in the recent clips that have been circulating from my podcast. 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!” (Facebook)

Truth and Reconciliation.I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused…

Before You Go

Reality TV star Masika Kalysha is spilling plenty of tea following the firing of Cannon. The popular actress came forward to weigh-in and share her support for the outspoken hip-hop artist. On Wednesday, Kalysha went to her Twitter page to go off-off on ViacomCBS. In addition to riding behind Cannon, Masika said she also fell victim to the network’s one-sided politics.

“D*mn @NickCannon now u see what I was talkin about. Y’all know @ViacomCBS blackballed me from wild n out, Hollywood 🟥s, ❤️ & listings & every show they could bc I refused to film degrading dumb a** fake sh*t made to tarnish my image & integrity.
