50 wasted no time coming for Nick on Instagram after the news broke. He posted a photo of Nick captioned, “
?Damn nikki what the fuck was you on that stupid ass podcast talking about??No More Wilding Out Hun! (Don’t worry Be Happy).”
Earlier this year, 50 spoke out during a period of time where Nick and Eminem were going back and forth with jabs. 50 said he advised his friend Eminem to not address Nick because he was beneath them. He said, “He’s legendary corny. He’s been corny forever”
As The Blast previously reported, Nick was fired by ViacomCBS after a conversation he had on his podcast, Cannon’s Class, went viral. Many people accused Nick of using racist and anti-Semitic language during the episode where he spoke with Public Enemy member Professor Griff.
Viacom released a statement about their decision, “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. 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.”
They continued, “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. We are committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds”
Nick fired back at ViacomCBS posting a lengthy statement on his Facebook. In the post, he demands the media giant hand over the rights to ‘Wild ‘N Out’ to him. It read, “I demand full ownership of my billion dollar “Wild ‘N Out” brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership! I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!”
