Nick Cannon took a rather unique way to defend his new album White People Party Music and the album’s marketing strategy … By calling himself racist.
On Thursday, the comedian posted a comedy video on YouTube called “I’m racist.” In the video description, Cannon writes:
“I’ve always been perfectly straight forward. ask me a question and I give you an answer! no need to make anymore allegations or statements about me being racist…I’M LETTING YOU KNOW!!!”
In the near two minute video, the rapper jokes that he is racist and even manages to poke fun at Asians and Indians.
“All the racists in here make some noise,” Cannon jokes. “I’m right there with you. I’m racist too. Yes, I am a racist, I’ll say it. I stereotype. There’s a stereotype for reasons. I’m prejudiced. All prejudice means is pre-judging. Yes, I pre-judge people, I do. If I meet somebody from India, I assume they house smell like curry and there’s a golden ball somewhere”
He continued, “My Asian friends, I don’t let them walk my dog. Because they might wok my dog! I’m racist! I am. If I see a middle-aged white man in some sweatpants by a school, pedophile!”
“With that whole Trayvon Martin thing, I get it White people. White people, you guys are scared of young black men in black hoods. I’m scared of old white men in white hoods. KKK, that sh*t is real.”
The 33-year-old, father of two has come under fire after posing in white face to promote his new album. The star was attacked and called racist, but Mariah Carey’s husband is defending his antics and is not backing down.
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.
50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”
Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.
While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!
All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.
And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.
Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
