Nick Cannon is back hosting "Wild 'N Out," after 7 months.
ViacomCBS fired Nick over anti-Semitic remarks, but now Nick's set to return to the show when season 16 resumes. The network says he's "not only apologized and taken responsibility for his comments, but he has also worked to educate himself and others through engagement with Jewish leaders and on his platforms."
Viacom fired Nick after he made anti-Semitic remarks on his "Cannon's Class" podcast, while talking with Professor Griff.
"You can't be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That's our birthright. We are the true Hebrews."
Nick later apologized and, consulted with Rabbi Abraham Cooper, who said Nick was apologetic and listened when Cooper explained how some of his perceived "facts" were actually propaganda.
"I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin," Cannon wrote. "They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place that these words came from."
On the podcast Cannon contend that Jews have stolen Black people's identity as true Hebrews. Cannon referred to teachings from Louis Farrakhan and a conspiracy theory about the Rothschild family deemed anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League.
