Nick Cannon has been dropped from ViacomCBS following comments he made on his podcast which have been described as antisemitic. While some took Nick's comments to be directed at whites, it turns out that the remarks were taken as antisemitic after Nick put forth his theory of who the "real" Hebrews are.
Following the initial backlash, Nick issued a response to the controversy but did not apologize for his words. "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," said Nick. "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."
However, this wasn't enough for Viacom who cut ties with Cannon on Tuesday. “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism," the company said in a statement. "We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ 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."

Nick Cannon recently had Professor Griff on his podcast "Cannon's Class" and a particular section of their conversation has people calling for Nick to be canceled. During the discussion, Nick Cannon was explaining his theory as to why white people on average display a lack of compassion toward people of color.
According to Nick, the white genealogy is at the core of the issue. He explained how a lack of melanin created an inferiority complex within white people which causes them to act "out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil." Nick also added that because of this propensity toward violence as a result of their lack of melanin, makes whites "closer to animals" and the "true savages."
