Nick Cannon says he is on ‘a journey of atonement’ and ‘not seeking forgiveness’


Emmy-nominated producer Nick Cannon is speaking out for the first time since issuing a lengthy apology on July 15 about making anti-Semitic remarks and spreading conspiracy theories in his since-removed June 30 YouTube vlog. 

‘I’ve always said that apologies are empty. Apologies are weightless,’ Nick said in a GMA sneak peek of Soul of a Nation, which aired Tuesday night on ABC.

His comments come as Cannon is set to resume hosting VH1’s Wild ‘N Out following a temporary firing by ViacomCBS.

USA TODAY reports that production was set to resume with Cannon as the host, though it’s unclear when new episodes will air. Cannon has been hosting the show since 2005.

The 40-year-old entertainer was one of 170 industry leaders to sign a unity statement on February 1 forming the Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance.

‘In Hebrew they call it, you know, ‘Teshuva’ – the process of not only you know, repenting, but through that, if you’re ever met with a similar situation that you make a different decision,’ Cannon continued in his new comments. ‘That goes beyond apologizing.’

‘And I’m on this journey of atonement, not to get a job, not to gain any more money because that’s not what’s needed here. I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do.’

Cannon – who previously claimed black people were the ‘true Hebrews’ – stressed that his controversial remarks had everything to do with ‘ignorance’ not ‘hatred.’

‘My journey’s not gonna stop, whether the person watching this forgives me or not,’ the San Diego-born presenter said.

‘I’m still gonna hopefully through this process, be on the right side of history and bring people closer together.’

Reaction to Cannon’s new comments on social media have been mixed, though many have commended him for trying to grow.

‘I respect nick now more than ever because he learned from the mistake but is WILLING to learn how to make things better. I pray nothing but the best for him,’ one user wrote.

Another, however, said the ‘stuff he said was so bad. He wasn’t really punished for his disgusting comments. I find him annoying now.’

But eight months ago, Cannon was (temporarily) fired by ViacomCBS over his hour-plus interview with outspoken anti-Semite Richard Griffin on Cannon’s Class.

‘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. We are the true Hebrews,’ claimed the Ghetto Blues singer, who said people without melanin are ‘a little less.’

‘[White people are] acting out of fear’: The Ghetto Blues singer also parroted Zionist conspiracy theories mentioning the the ‘six major corporations’ that control world and the ’13 families’ with ties to the Illuminati

‘[White people are] acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency. So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive.’

Nick continued: ‘They’re the ones that are actually closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages.’

NICK CANNON CLAIMS BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE ‘TRUE HEBREWS’ IN ANTI-WHITE AND ANTI-SEMITIC RANT ON YOUTUBE TALK SHOW

Nick Cannon went on an anti-white rant and delved deep into anti-Semitic tropes during a discussion with former Public Enemy member Richard ‘Professor Griff’ Griffin on his YouTube talk show and podcast, ‘Cannon’s Class.’

Cannon responded to his firing in a lengthy statement on Facebook in which he said he did not condone hate speech, but refused to say he was sorry

Cannon claimed white people of the past feared blacks due to white people’s lack of skin pigmentation or melanin, which he said comes with ‘compassion.’

‘The people that don’t have [melanin]  – I’m going to say this carefully – are a little less..and where the term actually comes from…they may not have the compassion when they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus… the sun then started to deteriorate them so then, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency,’ he said. 

‘So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive.  

‘So then, these people that didn’t have what we have — and when I say we, I speak of the melanated people — they had to be savages. They had to be barbaric because they’re in these Nordic environments…

‘They’re acting as animals so they’re the ones that are actually closer to animals. They’re the ones that are actually the true savages.’

The episode also discussed Griffin’s departure from Public Enemy in 1989 after the rapper himself was accused of antisemitism for saying Jews were ‘wicked’ and responsible for ‘the the majority of wickedness that goes on across the globe.’

Griffin argued that being ‘Semitic’ had nothing to do with being white and that Jewish people had stolen black people’s ‘birthright.’ 

The pair contended that black people are the true Hebrews and that Jews have usurped their identity. 

Cannon then segued into antisemitic conspiracies talking about ‘going as deep as the Rothschilds, centralized banking, the 13 families, the bloodlines that control everything even outside of America.’  

‘It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,’ Cannon said. 

‘When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.’

HOW NICK CANNON PROMOTED ANTI-SEMITIC CONSPIRACY THEORIES BY CLAIMING THE ROTHSCHILDS CONTROLLED THE WORLD

Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS after spreading anti-Semitic conspiracy theories including those about the Rothschild family, who have long been the subject of anti-Semitic canards.

During his podcast, Cannon and rapper Professor Griff, who was kicked out of Public Enemy in 1989 for saying ‘Jews are wicked’, delved into anti-Semitic tropes such as how Jews ‘control’ the world. 

They made references to Rothschilds, the German-based noble family who rose to prominence in the 1700s through their banking business that saw them amass the largest private fortune in modern history.

Over the years, myths and rumors have circulated suggesting the Rothschilds were in control of the world’s wealth as well as the United States Federal Reserve and Wall Street.

Those theories have been slammed by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League who say they were based on the anti-Semitic trope of Jews’ prevalence in the banking industry. 

During their discussion, Griff addressed the controversy that led to his dismissal, explaining he couldn’t be anti-Semitic, because the ‘Semitic’ people had no relation to Caucasians and black people were the true children of Israel.

The rapper said he was referring to Jews dominating the banks and the media, echoing the sentiments of controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who once called the US Federal Reserve, ‘the synagogue of Satan, the Rockefellers, the DuPonts, the House of Rothschild.’ 

Griffin and Cannon then delved into Zionist conspiracy theories mentioning the the ‘six major corporations’ that control world and the ’13 families’ with ties to the Illuminati.  

‘Let’s dive into it, who are they? When we talk about the six corporations, when we go as deep as the Rothschilds, centralized banking, the 13 families, the bloodlines that control everything even outside of America…’ he said. 

‘If we were truly the children of Israel and we’re defining who the Jewish people are …. I feel like if we can actually understand that construct then we can see that there is no hate involved.’

‘When we talk about the lies, the deceit, how the fake dollar controls all of this, then maybe we can get to the reason why they wanted to silence you, why they wanted silence Louis Farrakhan.

‘It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,’ he said.  ‘When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.’  

Following the backlash from the video, ViacomCBS – which is owned Jewish-American media executive Shari Redstone – announced that it was cutting ties with television producer.
