Wild ‘N Out host Nick Cannon has been sacked from presenting the show after allegedly making ‘racist’ remarks, but is the show now being cancelled completely?
Nick Cannon is one of America’s most famous presenters, not forgetting his rap album released with R.Kelly and of course his marriage to singer Mariah Carey.
But now, it seems like he’s no longer going to be so loved by fans after making some comments on his YouTube podcast that many are regarding as extremely ‘racist’.
This has led Nick to be sacked from presenting Wild ‘N Out, but does that mean the show will be pulled off air forever?
Wild ‘N Out has aired since 2005
Wild ‘N Out is an American sketch comedy and improv show that first aired in 2005 on MTV. Since then show has had 16 Seasons and been well loved by fans for 15 years.
The show puts two teams of comedians against each other and asks them to play a series of improv based games in order to win.
Wild ‘N Out is hosted by Nick Cannon, an American actor, comedian, rapper, writer and TV host who has also hosted America’s Got Talent, Lip Sync Battle and The Masked Singer.
Nick Cannon has been sacked from Wild ‘N Out
ViacomCBS, who own the Network that airs Wild ‘N Out have taken the decision to sack Nick Cannon from the show.
This comes after Nick allegedly made anti-Semitic comments on his YouTube podcast Cannon’s Class.
According to The Mirror, Cannon “promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories” as he said: “You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people… When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”
He also continued to discuss how he thought that people with “melanin” were instantly superior, and called white people the “true savages“.
He refused to apologise for his remarks, arguing that he would never condone hate speech and doesn’t believe he was in the wrong.
Is Wild ‘N Out being cancelled?
After Nick was sacked from the show, there’s one question everyone wants to know. Will the show be cancelled completely?
Nick Cannon has certainly been fired from the show for good, and will not be returning. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the show will be cancelled forever.
Many people on Twitter believe that the show will be cancelled, but ViacomCBS are yet to confirm or deny if this is true.
The show could potentially continue in the future with a new host, however MTV are not airing any Wild ‘N Out shows that feature Nick Cannon as the host, so the show is at least temporarily being pulled from TV.
