The Hip-Hop mogul took to Instagram to reach out the Cannon after news broke earlier this week that he was being fired from the massive media company.
“The only way we can change the narrative, educate, and uplift each other is if we do it together. Nick, my brother, I am here to support you fully in any way you need. What we are not going to do is turn our backs on our brothers and sisters when they challenge the system,’ Diddy wrote.
He posted the message alongside a photo of the two stars sitting together at a sporting event.
“Come home to @REVOLTTV, which is truly BLACK OWNED! We got your back and love you and what you have done for the culture. ✊?❤️” Diddy added.
As we reported, ViacomCBS severed their relationship with ‘Wild N’ Out’ host after he interviewed Professor Griff from ‘Public Enemy’ on his podcast, who left the group after making anti-semitic statements in the past.
During the episode, Cannon mentioned several ‘conspiracy theories’ about the wealthy Rothschild family, and said, “It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” Cannon said. “When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”
As we reported, Nick Cannon took to Facebook to defend himself demanding “full ownership of my billion-dollar Wild ‘N Out brand that I created” — and said the company is now on the “wrong side of history.”
“I am deeply saddened in a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be, misused an important moment for us to all grow closer together and learn more about one another,” he said on Facebook.
He continued, “Instead the moment was stolen and highjacked to make an example of an outspoken black man.”
In the statement, Nick claimed the media company “chose to recently ban all advertisements that supported George Floyd and Breonna Taylor who we are all still seeking justice for.”
Also, Cannon says he reacted out to the company’s boss Shari Redstone, “to have a conversation of reconciliation and actually apologize if I said anything that pained or hurt her or her community.”
At this point, he says his request has gone unanswered.
It’s unclear what role Diddy has in mind for Cannon, but it’s obvious the multi-talented star will have no problem swiftly moving on in the entertainment business.
