TV host and actor, Nick Cannon’s self titled syndicated daytime talk show will now premiere in the Fall of 2021 after being cancelled for anti-Semitic remarks.
In a podcast interview with former Public Enemy group member, Richard ‘Professor Griff’ Griffin, who was reportedly removed from the hip-hop group in the late 80’s for stating, “Jews are responsible for the majority of the wickedness in the world.” During their conversation Cannon hinted at conspiracy theories of the 13 families, while adding in the controversial belief of Black-Americans being “the true Hebrew Israelites.”
“You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright,” the remarks lead to ViacomCBS firing Cannon, deeming his remarks as a hate speech.
After issuing a public apology and spending time with the associate dean at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Rabbi Abraham Cooper confirmed that the comedic tv host, “appears to be someone who’s genuine in his desire to make sure people understand his apology.”
‘Lionsgate Debmar-Mercury confirmed the premiere in a statement, “We are standing by Nick in our hope that by fall 2021 he will be able to use his extraordinary talent and platform to entertain, enlighten and unite his audience on the Nick Cannon talk show.”
