Nick Cannon Quits ‘America’s Got Talent’!
Nick Cannon is saddened, disgusted and flat out DONE with NBC!
The comedian posted a lengthy message on Facebook about how executives at the network threatened to relieve him of his “America’s Got Talent” hosting duties due to a joke he told during his comedy show “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot”. Apparently, NBC head honchos believed the joke, which poked fun at Cannon losing his Black card over ‘AGT’, was a breach of contract. Clearly, Cannon saw it another way.
The simple assertion that they were thinking of firing him for what he called freedom of speech left Nick in a place where he felt he couldn’t continue with the company. Read his explanation below…
Power to the people! Nick may not be excited about ‘AGT’ anymore, but when we spoke to the comedian right before he hit the stage he was extremely excited about “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot”.
