Nick Cannon literally can’t catch a break. The 39-year-old former “Wild ‘N Out” host, fired last month for his racist and antisemitic remarks, has been bending over backward to make amends. Nick, who called Jewish and white people “The true savages” during a 2019-recorded episode of his “Cannon’s Class” podcast has wiped his Instagram clean of everything but content showing him educating himself – apparently, for “The Masked Singer” hosts’s fans, it’s just too much.
Nick’s Tuesday Instagram update revisited the writings of Austrian Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal. Fans are now deeming the ramblings “ridiculous” and want Cannon to quit IG.
Nick, who earlier this year graduated with a degree in Criminology/Administration of Justice and a minor in Africana Studies, is now studying even more. He’s announced a master’s in neuropsychology as his current goal, eventually aiming for a doctorate.
Nick, followed by 5 million on Instagram, updated this morning with a rambling, in-depth post accompanied by a copy of concentration camp survivor Wiesenthal’s “The Sunflower.”
A very lengthy caption opened with mentions of Rabbi Abraham Cooper and Rabbi Marvin Heir, both of whom “introduced” the book to Cannon.
Nick then addressed the behavior that’s seen fans question how genuine the posts and apologies have been – Nick confirmed donating his “Masked Singer” salary to a Holocaust Center amid mass apologies.
“In the midst of a passionate rant and healthy discourse I was emphasizing to Rabbi Cooper that I wasn’t apologizing to people because I was instructed to do so, or because I wished to keep one or two of my many “jobs”, nor was I apologizing in fear of being “Cancelled” once more in my career.”
Alongside being fired by ViacomCBS, the ex to Mariah Carey also sees his new show pushed forward to 2021. And it looks his his own fans are pushing him to quit social media.
Quickly shooting up to the top of the comments section was a reply telling the rapper to call it a day.
“Enough already!!!! You didn’t DO anything wrong!!!! STOP!” they wrote, adding:
“YOU BEGGING FOR WHAT ?!!! THESE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO TOOK YOUR OWN SHOW!! You need to put these books down and start picking up some laws books so you can get your sh-t back!!
Nick, who has profusely apologized to the Jewish community, observed the Jewish Tisha B’av fast, and seen the child of a Holocaust survivor forgive him, received little support as early comments came in.
A popular comment read: “??????????????????????
Get this n–ro off IG PLEASEEEEEE.”
The fan calling the post “ridiculous” also gained likes. “Omg! Dude are you really talking about a Jewish experience in concentration camps?” another asked.
Nick has also received backlash for his “I can’t breathe” George Floyd video last month. The popular host has also sparked mental health concerns in now-deleted posts tagging himself in “heaven” and writing: “Goodbye Earth.” It wasn’t all one-way today, though. A fan appreciating the genuine feel and level of detail replied:
“I love that you’re using your platform to educate. This is beautiful. I’ve learned so much.”
Cannon is also fresh from claiming his grandfather was a “Spanish rabbi.”
