Nick Cannon is being told enough is enough. The 39-year-old former “Wild ‘N Out” star, fired from his MTV gig last month following racist and antisemitic remarks, has been putting his all into making amends since the scandal. Nick, whose 2019 “Cannon’s Class” podcast comments cost him dearly, has apologized to the Jewish community, fasted over the Jewish Tisha B’av day, and surrounded himself with literature to educate himself.
It looks like Instagram is telling the guy to give it a break. Nick’s Sunday update took less than an hour to bring in the negative comments.
Nick is fresh from graduating with a degree in criminology. The ex-MTV face obtained his degree earlier this year from Howard University, with the full qualification coming as “a degree in Criminology/Administration of Justice and a minor in Africana Studies!” per his tweet.
The ex to Mariah Carey had alluded to gaining more qualifications, saying that a “Masters and Ph.D is next!”
It looks like Nick is putting his money where his mouth is. A very lengthy update posted to Nick’s 5 million followers today suggested he’s started the next steps.
Nick’s photo showed a copy of “The African Unconscious” by Edward Bunym. Cannon opened his caption writing:
“Another Book down this week but this Report was specifically intriguing due to the fact that I am currently studying Neuropsychology for my Masters Degree.”
The book had previously featured in an update Nick made also showing a book by Holocaust survivor Simon Weisenthal. Nick, who had linked melanin to intellect during his podcast, stated he’d been questioning his “fact-checking,” seemingly having found the answers.
Nick added: “Well the book THE AFRICAN UNCONSCIOUS : “Roots of Ancient Mysticism and Modern Psychology” by DR. EDWARD BRUCE BYNUM breaks it all down!”
Nick, who has also sparked mental health concerns by tagging himself in “heaven” and writing “Goodbye Earth,” did receive support, but early replies gaining likes begged “The Masked Singer” host to give it all a break. Nick has wiped his entire Instagram, bar content showing remorse for his actions and educational material. He was also slammed for his “I can’t breathe” George Floyd video.

A popular reply read: “N-gga you already put us back enough just give it up….. Your [sic] controlled by them we don’t wanna hear nothing you have to say.”
Fans have been growingly voicing sentiments suggesting that Cannon is feeling pressured to portray a remorseful image. Another stated:
“N-gga stop it,” adding that he “took it back apologised then interviewed a Jew. Some sucka sh-t they say your for the people.”
Also raised was Cannon’s recent reveal that he’s backing “Ye” rapper Kanye West in his bid for president.
