Diddy x Nick Cannon
On Wednesday, Puff Daddy went to Instagram and Twitter with open arms. Diddy encouraged Cannon to consider bringing his talent to the growing entertainment powerhouse.
“The only way we can change the narrative, educate, and uplift each other is if we do it together. Nick, my brother, I am here to support you fully in any way you need. What we are not going to do is turn our backs on our brothers and sisters when they challenge the system. Come home to @REVOLTTV, which is truly BLACK OWNED! We got your back and love you and what you have done for the culture. ✊🏿❤️” -Diddy’s Instagram
A few hours ago, Nick Cannon went to Facebook to request full ownership of his long running ‘Wild ‘N Out’ brand. He also called out Viacom for bullying him and apologized for his previous comments.
“As for Viacom, who is now on the wrong side of history, I will continue to pray for you. I don’t blame any individual, I blame the oppressive and racist infrastructure. Systemic racism is what this world was built on and was the subject in which I was attempting to highlight in the recent clips that have been circulating from my podcast. If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholeheartedly apologize. But now I am the one making demands. I demand full ownership of my billion dollar “Wild ‘N Out” brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership! I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!” (Facebook)

Reality TV star Masika Kalysha is spilling plenty of tea following the firing of Cannon. The popular actress has come forward to weigh-in and share her support for the outspoken hip-hop artist.
