ViacomCBS cut ties with Cannon following backlash he received over some anti-Semitic comments he made during his podcast Cannon’s Class. Though Cannon sort-of apologized, stating he would be trying to learn and grow from the moment, the mass media conglomerate released the announcement on Tuesday condemning his “hateful speech” and failure to “acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism.”
Cannon is now firing back at the company, writing on Facebook to request full rights to Wild ‘N Out and an apology. “If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholeheartedly apologize,” he wrote in the post titled “Truth and Reconciliation.”
