Nick Cannon Contemplated Suicide After Anti-Semitic Backlash


Last week Nick Cannon was fired by Viacom and his radio show put on hiatus after making a series of bigoted and anti-Semitic comments on his Cannon's Class podcast with special guest Professor Griff [click here if you missed that].

Nick returns to social media to mourn suicide of an artist on his record label and admits he too, considered taking his own life...

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse... 2020 is definitely the most fucked up year I’ve ever witnessed! After waking up & barely rising from my own dark contemplation of continuing my physical existence on this planet, this powerful warrior actually had the balls to do it. I’ve said it once and I will say it again, this was the strongest dude I’ve ever met! Just over a year ago a San Diego Police Officer rushed in his home and unjustifiably shot him placing him in a coma for months. I stood by his bedside and promised him that if he made it out & fought the good fight that I would make his dream come true and put his album out and share his story with the world. He fought and fought, he woke up, they stitched him up, he learned to walk and talk again and within months we were back in the studio recording. Even through his strength he would whisper to me that “Everything Still Hurts”. His music was definitely his safe haven and it was amazing. Paying for lawyers, putting money in his pocket, even putting the music together all meant nothing because I feel like I failed my little brother. The Cops will get away with shooting another kid, everyone will just look at this as yet another loving farewell post, but to me @ryanbowersob was so much more than that. Once again my brother you have put this world in perspective for me. You would do that quite often because I never understood how someone who was experiencing sooo much pain could still laugh and smile through it all. This photo was the last time we seen each other in person. It was your first show back! Soldout crowd in our hometown San Diego and you rocked it!! You were so happy!! Proved to so many that you could do it and that you were Super Human! The greatest comeback I ever saw!! We almost made it little bro! But I guess even flying Super Heros have to land eventually. But I am certain that your energy will never die and your Spirit is eternal, so I ask you still to forgive me for letting you down Warrior. I can’t help but think if I wasnt so engulfed in my own bullshit I could’ve been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts... Fuck this place!! #CantWin #ForLosingšŸ™

Sorry, Nick sounds like he's using his friend's death to garner sympathy for himself.

I really like Nick. He is brilliant, ambitious, and has accomplished sooo much! However, he spoke like a revolutionary but he isn't built for revolution. He is no Mandela. If you want change you have to be willing to lose it all and go through it all, fire and storms. Nick caved after 1 little interview. Instead of telling his thoughts, he should have built his brand like Master P said do. You can't talk when your are an employee, so become a boss.Here's the issue with Black celebs, they don't want to start over and build their own network because they will have to take HUGE pay cuts and so they COMPROMISE and apologize. I dont like hotep types but if thats what Nick believes then why back track and them blame innocent black golks? They rode down on him and he caved. Nit only did ge cage, but he blamed his people. Lol. I still like Nick but now he sees that revolutionary thoughts scare folks. What did he think would happen? Start a network Nick.

Say what you mean and mean what you say, Nick. If you cant do that, then keep ya mouth shut. We turned, because we didnt agree with your apology?

Colin Kaepernick didnt fold when the Yt world turned on him. He stood his ground, like a man with a true belief. He gets respect and support.

Nigga please!!! 6:40 AM read that shit correctly this is what industry folks do. First of all I see they removed that crazy ass video when Orlando Brown accused Mr. Cannon of some child toucher incidents, so when he thought he was coming for them fake ass jews, they reached back in his closet and let him know his shit, can be exposed. All industry folks have carefully manufactured images, he will learn next time to stay out the fuckery. 2020 is here for all fools caught out there.
