Nick Cannon in White Face: Funny or Foul?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Ready to meet Connor Smallnut?

To promote the upcoming album “White People Party Music,” Nick Cannon took to Instagram last night and posted as a character by this name.

A white character by this name, we should say, joking to a follower on Twitter that it feels "great" to be this color because "I’m no longer afraid of the Police!! LOL.”

However, after Vanity Fair Tweeted that Cannon’s stunt is “cringe” worthy, the America’s Got Talent host shot back:

“Don’t get your fancy panties in a bunch! It’s funny how people take themselves so seriously. People love drama! We feed off of it. Just relax and have fun!!”

Cannon then posted a picture of Robert Downey Jr. in black face in Tropic Thunder and wrote as a caption:

“This is one of my favorite characters of all time! Hilarious!!! There is a big difference between Humor and Hatred.”

True. But remember when Julianne Hough went blackface for Halloween? She faced a torrent of criticism.

White People Party Music, Cannon’s second studio album and his first in more than 10 years, drops on April 1.

What do you think of his white face stunt?

Whites crying again over nothing. What else is new with the biggest crybaby "discrimination against us" (even though they represent 3/4 of the US population) group in the world. I wish Hispanics would hurry up and take over and get rid of the crybaby whites. Their whining is getting old.

Funny I hear and read more crybaby blacks crying foul when us "crackers" get ahead of them in life. Remember when Julianne Hough wore blackface for Halloween going as her favorite character from Orange Is the New Black? Who was crying foul? It sure wasn't us.

yeah well if a white person did this and it was reversed we would instantly be racist and the video banned because anything a white person does is instantly racist and what people dont realize is that kind of thinking in itself is racist I HAVE HONESTLY MET MORE RACIST BLACKS THAN WHITES yeah its shitty what happened a 100 years ago but get over it the jews dont hold every german responsible for what happened to them and the indians got over it you need to as well

Aw no, we wouldn't want white people to feel as if they are getting oppressed! Wouldn't wanna offend them in any way, or make them uncomfortable. They would NEVER do the same to black people, oh wait!
(and yes, I'm white myself, but you bitches that are whining need to get your heads out of your privileged arses.
