Nick Cannon and comedian Dane Cook got into a social media feud earlier this week after Dane decided to criticize Cannon for his new Turban style. But for Cannon, Dane’s remarks came down to what Nick is now calling a lack of “understanding.”

Just hours before the 36-year-old hit the stage to perform his Standup Don’t Shoot Comedy Special in Los Angels on Friday night, the comedian stopped to chat with HipHollywood about this week’s Instagram war that made headlines around the world.

“Some people, they speak ignorantly before they understand the whole idea,” Cannon told us exclusively. “Sometimes people just want to say things just to say things because they feel like they have something to say; which I encourage, say what you gonna say, just be able to back it up.”

Cook blasted the rapper on the social media website after photos surfaced of Mariah Carey’s ex-husband sporting a pink head wrap while sitting front row at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

According to Dane, the father of two’s outfit paired with a matching pink tie was reminiscent of “Zoltan.” The comedian further suggested the look was so horrific, it made him want to “quit Instagram.”

But it looks like the 44-year-old just might have to say goodbye to IG because Nick’s turban swag isn’t going anywhere. “Ultimately … it’s all about sovereignty,” Nick told us when asked about the headpiece.

He explained, “It’s all about being the original man and understanding who you are and your ancestry and understanding that power and that royalty within us. Whether it’s sikhism, whether it’s a moorish mentality, it comes from a place where we feel like this is how we got to represent ourselves.”

“As we recondition our communities and the mindset in our communities, we all don’t have to be thugs and savages, especially when we come from being kings and royalty,” the father of two said. “Same way nobody has a problem with me wearing bandanas and hats to the back, we can do the same thing when we wearing our crowns.”

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
