Nick Canon Takes Break From Show After Anti-Semitic Statements

Today, Nick Cannon announced that he will “take some time away from [his] radio show” to enter into a period of self-reflection and education. These statements come after backlash that Cannon received for anti-semitic remarks made during an episode of his Cannon’s Class podcast in June.

In earlier Tweets, Cannon stated: “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.” He also apologized to his “Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of [his] mouth during [his] interview with Richard Griffin.”
