Diddy says his mate Nick Cannon is welcome to join his black-owned Revolt TV network after he was fired by ViacomCBS.
According to this week's news reports, ViacomCBS was highly unimpressed following an airing of Nick's podcast which included some controversial anti-Jewish content.
Diddy has reached out to welcome the US media personality to his TV network instead. The media mogul took to Instagram to let Nick know that he supports him fully.
Diddy said on Wednesday, 15 July that the only way blacks can change the narrative, educate and uplift each other is if they do it together.
"Nick, my brother, I am here to support you fully in any way you need. What we are not going to do is turn our backs on our brothers and sisters when they challenge the system.
"Come home to @REVOLTTV, which is truly black-owned! We got your back and love you and what you have done for the culture."
Billboard.com reports that in the 30 June episode of the Cannon’s Class podcast, Nick mentioned that black people are the "true Hebrews" and discussed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about the wealthy Rothschild family.
