Last month, Nick Cannon was let go by Viacom along with his ‘Wild ‘N Out’ show he started over a decade ago due to anti-Semitic comments he made on his YouTube podcast, ‘Cannon’s Class.’ He has since been working with the Jewish community to better his relationship with them.
Now, Cannon is taking legal matters into his own hands against Viacom. According to The Shade Room, he is suing the company for $1.5 billion. This is the amount estimated to be the worst of Wild ‘N Out as well.
“It is just that simple, Wild ‘N Out belongs to Nick!” said his team to The Shade Room. “The show was created by Nick Cannon with his idea and original thought. Wild’N Out has brought billions of dollars in revenue to Viacom since 2015. And Nick deserves and has earned everything it is worth. “If Viacom believes in growth, equality, education, then Viacom will do what is right and pay Nick what they owe, and give him his $1.5 billion brand.”
Some of Cannon’s actions made to repair the result of his comments are appearing on a Jewish program where he was with Rabbi Noam Marans discussing strengthening the relations between Black and Jewish communities. He also brought on Rabbi Abraham Cooper on Cannon’s Class.
