Nick Cannon Quits AGT Confirms Blind Item


Last year a blind item was revealed claiming Nick Cannon's increasingly militant stance on Black issues were becoming a problem for executives at America's Got Talent who were warning the comic to pipe down [click here if you missed that].

The blind has just been confirmed...

Last week TMZ reported that NBC execs were upset with Nick Cannon over a joke from his new stand-up comedy special where he accuses them of 'taking away his Black card' by asking him to tone down his rhetoric.

Today Nick Cannon announced his resignation from America's Got Talent, citing the censoring of his joke as the reason and confirms this isn't the first time NBC execs tried to 'put him in his place' for "so-called" unruly actions.


Nick Cannon's comedy special 'Nick Cannon: Stand up, Don't Shoot' premiered on Showtime Friday night.

Wow! Kudos to you Nick. If only there were more real ones out there maybe we could make a difference.

Now that he has a little bit of Mariah' s money he is feeling himself? Was he militant before getting married to mariah?

Proud of him, go Nick!

10:37 - Mariah is allegedly mortgaged up to her earlobes and has signed away partial royalties due to that "manager" so it's actually Nick paying for day to day expenses for the kids and sending Mariah a little something here and there. Icon or not, it was Benny Medina keeping the Mariah boat afloat, but now it's sinking.

Woah, Nick is speaking the truth. Hope he stays safe.

10:37. Does it matter?

11:33 - I'm not 10:37 but yes it does matter. In a time when most celebrities (white, black, latino) make no political statements without clearing from their agent, management team, it's refreshing to see someone walk away from a huge payday to keep their integrity. If you watch Nick's Vlad TV videos you can see he's awake to a number of issues, least of all that the political system and the entities who pull the strings don't want a young man of color speaking freely and articulately on real issues. Now if he were going on and on about sneakers, rims, and "hoes" he'd be able to speak as freely as he wanted. Look at the bigger picture and stop hating. Peace.

We all know your stand. but at the end of day. Not one community or black person really gives a fuck! They asked you to pipe it down...not sure why you thought it was a G.F.I.....(Great Fucking Idea) to keep talking about BLM!..You are not a politician dude!.....Politics and Work don't mix....Go be active in the black community....now you must lower your standards on how you spend money cause nigga your out of a job.

Hi Obvious 11:52 Troll: I don't recall seeing anything on BLM in his post. Yours is very telling in the syntax you use. I'd say you're some bored white guy in either MA or RI who's decided to spend part of your day trolling a Black blog. Are you laid off right now? Need more education but don't want to pursue it because "being white" use to be enough? Black people are not your enemy. Being undereducated and allowing yourself to be used as a puppet for Globalist Bankers as a wedge against Black people is. Move along and love yourself more than to be a troll. No snark, I hope things get better for you.

Welp, 11:52 got dragged within an inch of his life. Thank you 12:02 because I KNEW that they sounded like a bitter-ass troll.

I am EXTREMELY proud of you, Mr. Cannon.

Will NEVER watch AGT again.

Thats a stand-up guy. He had cash before Mariah . Forget that wack as show. I have a new respect for Nick Cannon

Good for Nick!!! More people will realize the dollar means nothing, if it comes with disrespect. It's been too long black folks have been cooning behind closed doors for those jobs and some of them force them to coon out front! Glad more people are standing up for themselves and the community they represent. Culture is real and no one should have to suppress theirs.

Thank you 12:02 for your accurate read of 11:52

Lol @ 11:52, i get what your saying, you did not say it correctly. Going up against a big wig they will all fall in line. So forget about doing televison or even music again that part of your life is over. Standing ovation for what you stand for. No one knows if 11:52 is white or uneducated, that is just how they see shit! LOL

11:44....I agree with you. When I stated, "does it matter"? I meant it doesn't matter WHEN he decided to speak out, the point is that he SPOKE out. I admire him for that.

Your Highness said...

@11:52 You my dear, are apart of the problem...

Anonymous said...

Have any of you asked yourselves this: After eight seasons, he wants to take a principled stand. Yea right.....Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment? Or could it be that Nick just violated the terms of his contract and AGT is just exercising its remedy for such a breach? For 11:52 am I understand what you meant. Good grief. Another Hollywood celebrity with a oversized view of his importance... is there anyone who watches AGT to see the guy who walks the performers out onto the stage?

Don't know which is funnier, celebrities trying to act like everything they do is for the black man and they are super-pro black activists or the public actually buying this shit....but the big bad trump is in office so they know all they have to do is say "black this...freedom that..and bad trump and guess what, people come out the wood works to kiss their ass. Newsflash White people aint the ones exploited blacks...we do it too and have been doing it for a long time...FOH nick

Um, Nick has been talking about the nature of this system since 2013. This is not a "Trump" issue, 3:42 because he sees beyond that. Trump is a figurehead who takes orders. He's not in charge in a way that NO president is in charge. Andrew Johnson took orders from Albert Pike the same way GW Bush took orders from Cheney and Clinton took orders from Brzezinski and Gerald Ford took orders from Rockefeller. Look behind the throne and you'll find the real power. Instead of hating, go look at all Nick has said over the past few years.

America only likes shoe-shining coons and PC cops. But white men with money can do anything they want, including rape and/or marry their own daughters.

A commentator wrote that mariah got him the job at nbc. She cleaned him up, put him nice shiny suits to be vetted by a network. He owes that job to Mariah. Also, after the Mariah's pay out to nick, with a kid on a way and girlfriend to feed how long will 30 million last? This goes in keeping can real goes wrong.

For those applauding Nick, Raven should get the same consideration, when you have your own money you only have to speak YOUR truth!!

Tell'em Nick
