Nick Cannon is an American comedian, rapper, producer, and television host. He recently came under fire after making antisemitic comments on his podcast and YouTube show, Cannon's Class. Cannon has repeatedly made public apologies and has spent the past few weeks going through a process of multiple meetings with AJC and others to gain a deeper understanding of Judaism and antisemitism.
On August 10, 2020, Cannon joined AJC's Director of Interreligious and Intergroup Relations Rabbi Noam Marans for a candid conversation about his commitment to learning from this experience; his fight against antisemitism, racism, and all forms of hate - and the importance of Black-Jewish relations. It was Cannon’s first appearance on a Jewish program.
