Nick Cannon may be out at ViacomCBS, but he’s keeping his job over at FOX.
After he issued a lengthy, proper, apology for the anti-Semitic rhetoric from his podcast, FOX has decided to keep him as host of ‘The Masked Singer.’
The network released a statement in defense of their decision to keep him:
“When we were made aware of Nick Cannon’s interview with Richard Griffin on YouTube, we immediately began a dialogue with Nick. He is clear and remorseful that his words were wrong and lacked both understanding and context, and inadvertently promoted hate. This was important for us to observe. Nick has sincerely apologized, and quickly taken steps to educate himself and make amends. On that basis and given a belief that this moment calls for dialogue, we will move forward with Nick and help him advance this important conversation, broadly. Fox condemns all forms of hate directed toward any community and we will combat bigotry of any kind.”
It’ll be interesting to see if ViacomCBS stands by their initial stance.
