Cannon's latest statement comes after he called ViacomCBS "deceptive" for its alleged treatment of him earlier on Wednesday and said that he was "disappointed that Viacom does not understand or respect the power of the Black community."
"ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism," ViacomCBS said in a statement Tuesday. "We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast 'Cannon’s Class' on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories."
"While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him."
The spokesperson added that ViacomCBS is "committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry."
