Oh, and yes, there are people who are not happy about it.

Cannon has been posting photos and videos of himself as Mr. Smallnut, whiteface and all, on his Instagram and Twitter feeds in order to hype up the release of his upcoming album, “White People Party Music.” The album is a sort of parody performed by the Smallnut character, with songs like “Pajama Pants,” which tackle heavy issues like twerking.

Cannon has gotten plenty of blowback thus far, in conversations on his Instagram account that have really become a forum for people to air out their boiling racial grievances. The comments are mostly unprintable, so feel free to peruse them yourself, using the links below.
