Nick Cannon has received a personal response from a Jewish person, also the child of a Holocaust survivor. The 39-year-old former “Wild ‘N Out” host, this month fired for his racist and antisemitic podcast remarks, has been making every effort to make amends since calling white and Jewish people “The true savages.” The remarks came as Nick interviewed controversial and known antisemite rapper Professor Griff on “Cannon’s Class.”
Nick, fired by “Wild ‘N Out”‘s ViacomCBS and having his own show postponed until 2021, updated his Instagram on Thursday night to reveal some fasting and some learning.
Nick, who recently pledged to donate his salary from “The Masked Singer” to a Jewish Holocaust Center, posted a long update for his 5 million followers.
A photo showed the cover of book “How To Fight Antisemitism” by Bari Weiss, with Cannon opening:
“As I rise after a full day of fasting, meditation, study and prayer honoring for the first time Tisha B’av.”
The rapper and ex to Mariah Carey continued by outlining what he’d learned. Namely, that the Tisha B’av day of fasting “religiously recognizes both of Solomon’s Temples.”
The caption covered history, literature, and Nick’s interactions with various Twitter users including Rabbi Abraham Cooper. The ex MTV face has now received the following reply, appearing to forgive him.
“My dad is Jewish, also a Holocaust survivor.
I can say I was not at all bothered by your words.
Why? Bc Iv listed to several interviews over the years & know your not coming from a place of racism or hatred. Your 100% not for it,” the user began. Cannon was also told that he’s been using his platform “wisely” – as The Blast reported, though, his “I can’t breathe” video honoring George Floyd was deemed a fail by many.
Nick, who has been sparking mental health concerns by geo-tagging himself in “Heaven” and writing “Goodbye Earth” in now-deleted posts, was also told that any network not spotting his talent was a wasted deal.
“If any network or whatever is to blind to see beyond that & listen to all of your messages & not just this one then they’re not worthy of your talent!
Don’t let this media get to u!”
Cannon’s controversial podcast had seen him reference antisemitic conspiracy theories ranging from “the Rothschilds, centralized banking, and the bloodlines.”
Cannon appeared very solidly canceled as his name shot up Twitter trends following the 2019-recorded pocast. As The Blast reported, “Nah I’m good” was the response as Nick paid tribute to murdered black man George Floyd with a rap poem and video seeming to see Nick recreate Floyd’s dying moment.
Last night brought some back-up, though.
“Nick. Your apology was sufficient! And God’s grace is sufficient to keep you; His power is made perfect in your weakness. ?,” a fan supportively replied.
