Nick Cannon Quits America’s Got Talent; Claims NBC Hates Black People!

Nick Cannon is not mincing his words for his former employer, he took to Instagram to announce that he is quitting America’s Got Talent on NBC…

He elaborates that he was threatened with being terminated by NBC Executives because he was doing a comedy show that was intended on bringing people together, but instead he was being punished for a joke…

According to the NY Daily News

The former “Wild ‘N Out” host reportedly said the network was making him act differently and show less swagger, which he quipped meant they were making him lose his “black card,” according to TMZ.Cannon, 36, has a contract with the network that states he can’t speak about NBC without running it by them first and his joke made execs believe he was disparaging the organization.

Read his full dissertation below:

I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous mindset. After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke. This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my "team" that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment. Recently many of my mentors have cautioned me that soon "The System" would come down on me because I was speaking too many truths and being to loud about it. I had no idea that it all would hit so close to home. I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn't have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity. I have loved hosting AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons, watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure to work with but my soul won't allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn't the first time executives have attempted to "put me in my place" for so called unruly actions. I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head. It's never been about the money for me, what is difficult to walk away from is the fans, the people who love me on the show. This hurts tremendously. I felt like I was apart of the fabric of our great nation every summer, representing every culture, age, gender, and demographic. Now for the rug to be pulled from underneath me and to be publicly reprimanded and ridiculed over a joke about my own race is completely wrong… Continued on My FACEBOOK
