Nick Cannon Teases Sit Down W/ Rabbi Amidst Controversy: I Made A Lot Of People Mad
After facing criticism for remarks he made regarding the Jewish Community, actor and host Nick Cannon, 39, teases a clip of his sit-down with Rabbi Abraham Cooper. He said in a clip posted on Instagram,
“I made a lot of people mad. [I made] your community mad. I made my community mad by apologizing. “
Rabbi Cooper then informed Nick Cannon that people within his community question whether or not Nick Cannon is sincere.
Cannon then asked:
“Do you feel I’m sincere?”
Rabbi Cooper replied:
“At this point, YES!”
“I believe hate is a energy, and it’s very contagious. I don’t have a hatred towards any groups of people, but specifically, Jewish people because I felt [that] there’s such a connection.”
“You know what that common hate for the Black community comes from and the Jewish community…. white supremacy. The idea of eugenics is still placed on us today, in America, and that Hitler adopted.. which caused the Holocaust.”
Rabbi Cooper added:
“That’s correct. [It] came from America. Now it’s being used by the communist party in China, against Muslims.”
“And, I would say this. You don’t have to be white to practice the energy of white supremacy. That’s evil! That’s what you and I hate.”
Before his recent sit-down, Cannon was under fire for his comments on his radio show, which ultimately resulted in his firing from Viacom CBS. After his firing was announced, Cannon releases this statement apologizing to those he offended:
“First and foremost I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin. They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place that these words came from. The video of this interview has since been removed.”

After issuing an apology to the Jewish community, Cannon shared on social media that he’s been receiving backlash again. This time, however, it was for apologizing for his initial comments.
“I hurt an entire community and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth”
He also stated:
“Y’all can have this planet. I’m out!”
Several people were left with concerns by Cannon tweets and prayed for his safe recovering.
While there has not been an official date on when Cannon’s interview with the Jewish man will be released, he did inform his followers that it will be soon.
