Nick Cannon’s star power dimmed in June after he made “anti-Semitic” remarks on his podcast, Cannon’s Class. The multi-hyphenate entertainer was fired by ViacomCBS. His past is chasing him down!
He took some time to reflect and learn about the comments, but has since come back with renewed energy. In this article, Cannon shares what he’s learned and how he plans to move forward.
What I Learned From the Controversy
The Masked Singer is returning for another season in the not too distant future, and Nick Cannon has had an eventful past few months. Aside from the usual suspects, Cannon has had to endure a number of gaffes and missteps, including the firing of his co-stars at the box office. But while he has made a few faux pas, Cannon is a creditworthy and honorable performer in the good graces of his peers. It is a testament to his grit that he was able to rise above the fray and emerge as one of the most sought after entertainers in the industry.
Apology Isn’t Weightless
Apologies can be an important way to clear the air between people. They are also a way to make things right in the future.
The problem with apologies is that they can sometimes be overly weightless. Depending on the context, they can take away from what you’re trying to achieve.
When you apologize, the person needs to know that you regret what you did and are taking steps to fix it. It’s not a way to make yourself look good.
It’s also important to own what you did. This can be a difficult thing for some people to do, and they may need time to work through their feelings.
But if you do it in a sincere way, it can be very helpful. And it can also be an important way to start a conversation that could lead to other things down the road. Then, you can talk about how you learned from it and what you plan to do differently moving forward.
I’m Still Going Through a Growth Process
While Cannon has eschewed a traditional bachelorhood, he still managed to score multiple hotties on his plate this year. In addition to tying the knot with model LaNisha Cole, he also got the ringer with Brittany Bell, who just might be his wife for life. Having a baby on board is no small feat in any case, but Cannon certainly had his hands full in the baby department this time around. The dude has a big hat to wear, and we all know how much he values his ego. The most difficult part is making the right decision when it comes to who he chooses.
I’m Ready to Talk
If you’ve been following the buzz surrounding Nick Cannon, you know that his career took a serious hit last summer when he was fired by ViacomCBS after making anti Semitic remarks on his podcast with rapper Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin. On the show, which was since removed from YouTube, Cannon and Griffin discussed racial bias and questioned the birthright of Jewish people.
After his dismissal, Cannon apologized directly to members of the Jewish community and pledged to work to make things right. He has also connected with Jewish leaders and is currently working to educate himself on the issue.
In his interview with ABC’s Soul of a Nation, Cannon shared that he is ready to talk about the anti Semitic comments he made. He said he has been through a long process of healing and wants to help other people who have had similar experiences. He says he doesn’t expect forgiveness, but wants to be open to learning from his mistakes so that he can avoid making the same ones in the future.
