Nick Cannon is calling the recent shooting death of an unarmed 50-year-old Black man “unfortunate.”
“Justice is something that we all want and we all deserve. It’s our right,” the America’s Got Talent Host told HipHollywood on Wednesday. “Without getting on my soapbox, it’s been so many years that injustice has swamped our culture and I think at this time people just want what’s right.”
Walter L. Scott was shot and killed in North Charleston, S.C on Saturday by 33-year-old white police officer, Michael T. Slager.
On Tuesday evening, the North Charleston mayor announced that Slager was officially charged with murder. “When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” he said during the press conference.
In a video that has surfaced online, Slager can be seen shooting Scott in the back eight times as the victim was attempting to flea. The officer said he feared for his life because Walter took his stun gun in a dispute following a routine traffic stop.
However, in the clip, obtained by The NY Times, Scott can be seen running through an empty lot with wires from the stun gun attached to his back. Then you see the officer pull his gun and fire eight times before the father of four falls to the ground.
You also see in the video the officer placing something by Scott’s lifeless body.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
