The announcement came Tuesday afternoon, amidst a downpour of outrage and backlash towarda #NickCannon after he made very controversial claims on his podcast that many considered deeply troubling and downright hateful. Turns out, #Viacom agreed. They severed ties on Tuesday, stating, “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast #CannonsClass on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. 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." • Cannon issued his own non-apology on Monday, stating, "Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric." He then invited people to step up and go toe-to-toe. "I encourage more healthy dialogue and welcome any experts, clergy, or spokespersons to any of my platforms to hold me accountable and correct me in any statement that I’ve made that has been projected as negative." Viacom is the parent company of #MTV, WildnOut and also home to Nickelodeon, where Cannon got his start in the #90s. #keshawiththetea #checknintv
