Nick Cannon is pushing the envelope, promoting his new album, White People Party Music. The 33-year-old growing media mogul has a few fans and critics buzzing about a new Instagram photo that he shared. Nick is covered in lightening make-up, in an effort to look like a Caucasian. He shares the photo, writing:
It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft ” Bro I got drafted!!
He also added an entertaining clip introducing his white alter-ego, Connor Smallnut. Watch!
While some find his ‘White Face’ insulting, others find it entertaining. Check out some of the mixed Instagram reactions:
Nick has been quite open about discussing racism in America. Last year, the comic-actor-musician-host addressed stereotypes and racism in his stand-up special, ‘F#ck Nick Cannon’. What are your thoughts on Nick’s white face–offensive or hilarious?
P.S. We interviewed Nick last week at the private listening session for the new album.
