NICK CANNON TO SUE VIACOM, REPORTEDLY SEEKING $1.5B FOR VALUE OF ‘WILD ‘N OUT’
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 Class podcast, 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 The Shade 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.
