During a recent episode of “Wild ‘N Out” that aired on May 25, comedian Nick Cannon faced criticism from WWE fans after making an ill-received joke involving current champion Bianca Belair and the topic of impregnation.

Taking a creative approach, Cannon decided to remix the iconic “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song and direct a personal jibe at the 34-year-old athlete while her husband and fellow WWE star Montez Ford stood nearby.
As he began his rap, Cannon playfully referenced troublemakers in his neighborhood: “There’s a couple of guys who were up to no good; they starting making trouble in my neighborhood.” However, things quickly took an uncomfortable turn as he approached the Raw Women’s Champion, including, “I get in one little fight; my mom got scared because I wanted to impregnate Bianca Belair.”
Fans React To Nick Cannon’s Comment About Bianca Belair
A clip of the rap exchange made its way onto social media, causing a mixed reaction among viewers. While Belair appeared visibly surprised by Cannon’s bold comment, her husband attempted to laugh it off, perhaps to diffuse the moment’s awkwardness. Nonetheless, the joke failed to resonate with WWE fans, who took to Twitter to express their disapproval, mainly due to the presence of Belair’s husband during the incident.
Critics condemned Cannon’s behavior, with one Twitter user stating, “Nick Cannon is so disgusting with his behavior.” Another tweet humorously compared Cannon’s comment to his reputation: “Considering that it’s Nick Cannon with his track record, this is an Avengers-level threat, lmao.”
A tweet jokingly suggested that “A Nick Cannon sneeze could get a woman pregnant. Montez might want a pregnancy test after Nick was so close to Bianca like that.” Another tweeted, “Ford should’ve checked him right then, and I bet that would’ve ended the episode.”
However, some voices highlighted the nature of “Wild ‘N Out” and the expectation of provocative content. One tweet reminded fans, “You go on [‘Wild ‘N Out,’] you better be ready for this and much more.”

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Nick Cannon shared his aspirations for his children, expressing his desire for them to pursue careers outside of the entertainment industry to avoid being tagged “nepo” babies.
“The Masked Singer” host acknowledged the potential advantages his children have due to their famous parentage. However, he emphasized the importance of challenging themselves and going beyond the easy path of showbiz.
Cannon spoke about his enthusiasm for his children participating in sports, highlighting the life skills they can develop through hard work and perseverance. He explained, “That’s why I love… to see my kids try sports because it has nothing to do with anything. How much work you put in and how hard you go is how you’ll succeed in that space. They can learn all those cool principles by having fun with their friends.”
He expressed his hopes of being a supportive dad on the sidelines, concluding: “I hope I can be that dad somewhere rooting for them. But, again, if they want to be accountants or equestrians, I don’t care.”
Nick Cannon Wants A Family Band
Cannon, who had shared his desire for his children to pursue non-entertainment careers, revealed that despite his reservations, he still supports their musical development.
The 42-year-old noted his regrets about not learning music theory and expanding his musicality at a young age. He added that he is determined to give his children the opportunities he missed, stating, “So I’m giving them that gift. I’m like, ‘Look, you’ll get the lessons. You’ll know how now you can do whatever you want. You get to impress the girls, or you can make a career out of it.'”
Interestingly, Cannon hinted at the idea of a future family band, even though most of his children are still relatively young, with only three being older than four.
