ViacomCBS has restored its working relationship with Nick Cannon less than one year after the media conglomerate terminated Cannon following a controversial podcast episode.
Let’s be clear, Cannon was not fired for saying that white people are subhuman and closer to animals because their lack of melanin. This type of rhetoric against white people is encouraged across media and academia, and you can’t even find exactly what he said about white people on any mainstream news website.
Viacom, which is owned by Jewish American billionaire Sumner Redstone, fired Cannon for his ‘antisemitic’ remarks.

Throughout the interview, Cannon asked why “we give so much power to the ‘theys.’ He also talked about the illuminati, the Zionists, and the Rothschilds,” — referring to one of the wealthy Jewish families known for helping Israel finance their not so clandestine nuclear program in the 1960’s, as well as the formal creation of the state of Israel in the 1940’s.
Almost no one in the media came to Cannon’s defense in regards to what he said about Zionists, but many defended his statements on white people.
Many journalists quickly took to twitter to post their articles describing Cannon’s statements about white people as ‘speaking out against racism.’ This was an almost identical reaction we observed by the media regarding similar statements about white people made by L’oreal model Munroe Bergdorf.
It is difficult to return exact search results for what Cannon said about white people, but it is even more difficult to locate the exact statements made by Bergdorf.
“Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth, then we can talk,” was just one of the many statements made by the transgender L’oreal model.
After the death of George Floyd, CNN reported that ‘L’Oreal dropped the model for commenting on systemic racism.’ In June, L’oreal rehired Bergdorf using Floyd’s death as a pretext.
Following his termination, many rabbis visited with Cannon to discuss why he is never allowed to talk about Jewish people in a negative way.
Rabbi Cooper, the associate dean and director of Global Social Action Agenda for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, had a visit with Cannon to give him books and commence his reeducation.
Following the visits, Cannon issued a statement saying that he feels “ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place his anti-Semitic comments came from.” He went on to say that he extends his “deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth.” The statement came as a response to an announcement from Fox that he would not be fired from The Masked Singer.
Months later Cannon was rehired by Viacom, and the vast majority of the population still have no idea what he said about white people.
