Nick Cannon Officially Reinstated As 'Wild 'N Out' Host 7 Months After Anti-Semitic Controversy

Los Angeles, CA – Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS last summer following some comments he made during an interview with Public Enemy affiliate Professor Griff that were perceived to be anti-Semitic.

According to Variety, the media conglomerate has agreed to reinstate Cannon’s role as host of Wild ‘N Out, the popular sketch comedy show he conceptualized in 2005.

“Nick has not only apologized and taken responsibility for his comments, but he has also worked to educate himself and others through engagement with Jewish leaders and on his platforms,” an MTV Entertainment Group spokesperson said.

The split between the longtime partners took place in July 2020 shortly after Griff appeared on the Cannon’s Class podcast.

“The Black and Jewish communities have both faced enormous hatred, oppression persecution and prejudice for thousands of years and in many ways have and will continue to work together to overcome these obstacles.”

“They have been mistreating and robbing our community for years, underpaying talent on their biggest brands like Love & Hip Hop, all of BET programming and of course, Wild ‘N Out.”
