Exclusive: Nick Cannon Says “Bring It On” To Those Offended By His Whiteface!

Published

on

Nick Cannon came under fire this week after he posted several images of himself on Instagram in whiteface, all in efforts to promote his new album, White People Party Music.

“It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted,” one caption read.

In several snapshots posted on the social media network, the rapper poses as skater boy, “Connor Smallnut.” In the photos, Mariah Carey’s husband can be seen sporting a flannel shirt, skinny jeans and a beanie.

The 33-year-old’s photos garnered a lot of negative attention by social media users, in fact, many calling him racist.

“I’m actually black and this is terrible. Black face is a problem and its wrong, but when someone does white face, that isn’t racist,” someone wrote.

 

“Using stereotypes of any kind is pure ignorance. This kind of behavior brings out society back a few steps,” another comment read.

Many people are even comparing Cannon’s “Connor Smallnut” character to Juliane Hough’s Halloween costume when she went dressed as Uzo Aduba’s character, Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black. The former Dancing With The Stars dancer was criticized for doing blackface and was eventually forced to apologize for her actions. But for Cannon, he is holding his ground.

“Damn I didn’t know it was going to be this hard being White! … I’m exhausted with all this “privilege” LOL #WhitePeopleProblems,” Nick tweeted on Tuesday.

“I’m so happy we are all having this conversation ! It’s definitely needed!”

HipHollywood recently caught up with the Cannon to talk about the controversy behind the album and he says, bring it on. “I think there should be a White People Party march on Washington. Everybody who is offended by the title should march, uncoordinatedly,” he joked.

“It’s one of those things where I don’t take myself seriously and this is just another thing … It’s just about having fun. And white people know how to have fun, more than anyone on the planet. That’s why it all goes together,” he said about creating the album.

Sound off: Do you think Nick is in the wrong for posing in whiteface?

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
