Nick Cannon Bids Farewell
Nick Cannon, who had been hosting the popular show for 8 seasons, is stepping down after rumors began flying that he would be fired for a joke he told during a comedy special.
In a nutshell, he says that he has been “threatened with termination” by NBC executives.
His extensive message started on Instagram and spilled over onto his Facebook page, where he expressed being “deeply saddened” and that he feels that this is “just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment.”
Are we, as a society, becoming too sensitive?
Does the First Amendment hold as much weight as it was designed to?
