As we previously reported, Nick Cannon was fired after ViacomCBS said he promoted hate speech.
Nick Cannon went to social media to call out the network for their decision.
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. Instead the moment was stolen and highjacked to make an example of an outspoken black man. I will not be bullied, silenced, or continuously oppressed by any organization, group, or corporation. I am disappointed that Viacom does not understand or respect the power of the black community.
His full statement is below:
Despite everything that is going on, Nick is taking full responsibility for his words.
Until then, I hold myself accountable for this moment and take full responsibility because My intentions are only to show that as a beautiful human species we have way more commonalities than differences, So let’s embrace those as well as each other. We All Family!??
