Nick Cannon apologizes for anti-Semitic remarks after firing

Nick Cannon apologized Wednesday night for comments he called “hurtful and divisive” after the television host and producer was dropped by ViacomCBS for remarks the company called anti-Semitic.

Cannon, 39, wrote in a Twitter thread that he was “ashamed” of comments he made on an episode of his “Cannon’s Class” podcast with former Public Enemy member Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin in which they discussed racial bias.

“First and foremost I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin,” he tweeted Wednesday night.
