Nick Cannon was later fired from his show “Wild N’ Out” by Viacom.
He has since apologized.
As previously reported, on July 4, 2020, Kanye announced on Twitter that he would be running in the 2020 presidential election. He later announced that his running mate will be Wyoming preacher Michelle Tidball, and that he would run as an independent under the “Birthday Party”, “because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday”. Kanye also said he no longer supported Trump because he “hid in [a] bunker” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Various political pundits have speculated that West’s presidential run is a publicity stunt to promote his upcoming music.
On July 15, 2020, official paperwork was filed with the Federal Election Commission for West, under the “BDY” Party affiliation amid claims that he was preparing to drop out. West held his first rally that weekend, on July 19.
