Nick Cannon recently revealed he tested positive for Covid-19. The good news is the comedian has rejoined forces with ViacomCBS for the return of ‘Nick Cannon Presents: Wild’N Out.’
According to Deadline, close sources revealed that Cannon and the ViacomCBS have reunited. And will be moving forward with the production of the hit comedy improv show. The change of heart from the network came after the ‘American Son’ actor apologized and accepted responsibility for his actions that he deserves another chance.
In July 2020, Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS after he made controversial anti-Semitic remarks during one of his Cannon Class podcast episodes. During the episode, Cannon discussed racism with former Public Enemy member Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin. Viacom considered the episode as hateful speech. And Cannon was ultimately fired, and his show ‘Wild’N Out’ was canceled.
The following month Cannon issued a public apology for his comments he made. In a statement to US, he shared his deepest and most sincere apologies to his Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of his mouth.
“I want to express my gratitude to the Rabbis, community leaders, and institutions who reached out to me to help enlighten me, instead of chastising me,” Cannon said. “I want to assure my
Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education. I am committed to deeper connections, more profound learning, and strengthening the bond between our two cultures today and every day going forward.”
‘Wild’N Out’ is a comedy skit and improv show hosted by Nick Cannon. Cast members include DJ D- Wreck, DC Young Fly, Emmanuel Hudson, Justina Valentine. Carlos Miller, Hit Man Holla, Pretty Vee, Chico Bean, and Conceited.
