Nick Cannon is addressing the cancel culture movement one month after being fired from the host as "Wild 'n Out" following his anti-semitic comments. The 39-year-old star has been on a teaching tirade after his world came crashing down from his comments about the Jewish community and now, he's sitting down with a Catholic priest to discuss the movement that's affected not only his life but several stars as well. Cancel culture refers to withdrawing support for companies and public figures for something they have done or said something that is considered offensive.

Just one month ago, Nick Cannon faced major backlash for his comments, and ViacomCBS ended their longstanding relationship with the star, including his job as "Wild 'n Out" host. Later, it was revealed that his highly-anticipated talk show is being shelved until 2021 with no air date.

In the latest clip, shared by Nick Cannon on Thursday, August 13, the star claims that "it shouldn't cancel culture. It should be counsel culture." He then listened to what the priest and activist Michael Pfleger had to say.

He then discussed how important it is to avoid wrapping the truth in love. "When you wrap truth in love, today, you are dangerous and you are dangerous to the lie that perpetuates," he told Nick Cannon. "You're a danger to those who stick in their ground and put their flag down like 'this is where I stand.'"

Nick Cannon shared it on his Instagram proudly captioning the clip by writing, "Leader, Activist, Mentor and Catholic Priest @pastorpfleger offered some wisdom and guidance on the next #CannonsClass," but not everyone was impressed.

Several of Nick Cannon's followers slammed the "Masked Singer" host and disagreed with the message he is sending about the cancel culture movement. "Um no because you guys think you can say anything and not be held accountable when without US you wouldn’t even be sitting where you are," one person responded.

Others weren't happy Nick Cannon picked a white man to lead the discussion. "Cancel culture has been mainly the black community. It should have been a black person interviewed for this session. But that’s just my opinion," said another.

Nick Cannon has not responded to the backlash as of this post.
