Nick Cannon Says He Feels Really Sorry For Hurtful Anti-Semitic Comments

Nick Cannon Says He Feels Really Sorry For Hurtful Anti-Semitic Comments

The Masked Singer host Nick Cannon has posted an apology message via his official Twitter page on Wednesday after he expressed hurtful anti-Semitic comments in a podcast with Richard Griffin.

In his tweets, Cannon said that he sent his most profound and most sincere apologies to the Jewish community for the hurtful and divisive words he said during an interview with Richard Griffin.

Here’s what he stated:

“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.

They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people, and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place that these words came from. The video of this interview has since been removed.

While the Jewish experience encompasses more than 5,000 years and there is so much I have yet to learn, I have had at least a minor history lesson over the past few days, and to say that it is eye-opening would be a vast understatement.”

He continued to express his gratitude to the Rabbis:

“I want to express my gratitude to the Rabbis, community leaders, and institutions who reached out to me to help enlighten me instead of chastising me.

I want to assure my Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education—I am committed to deeper connections, more profound learning, and strengthening the bond between our two cultures today and every day going forward.”

The 39-year-old host was fired by ViacomCBS earlier this week after his comments spread on the internet. According to The Wrap, ViacomCBS has cut their ties with ‘Wild ‘N Out’ host Nick Cannon after supporting the opinions which ‘promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.’
