Wednesday, Aug 12, 2020
Wild ‘N Out creator Nick Cannon isn’t going down without a fight! After ViacomCBS cut ties with Cannon following his anti-Semitic comments on his Canon’s Classpodcast, the media company announced they would be taking over Wild ‘N Out despite Nick being the face of the brand since it’s inception. However, according to TheShade Room, Cannon is ready to fight for what he created by filing a $1.5 billion lawsuit against them for the value of the show.
“It is just that simple, ‘Wild’N Out belongs to Nick. The show was created by Nick Cannon with his idea and original thought. Wild’N Out has brought billions of dollars in revenue to Viacom since 2015. And Nick deserves and has earned everything it is worth,” Nick’s team exclusively shared with Shade Room. Adding that “If Viacom believes in growth, equality, education, then Viacom will do what is right and pay Nick what they owe, and giving him his $1.5 brand.”
His team also said that Nick plans to invest the money from the lawsuit into education, psychological programs and youth organizations for underserved communities.
