Nick Cannon deletes posts suggesting he was contemplating suicide
After raising the concern of fans, recently fired Wild ’N’ Out host Nick Cannon has since deleted a pair of seemingly suicidal posts as more fans rally behind him in support.
Cannon has been in the wars recently, after getting fired by ViacomCBS for anti-semitic sentiments expressed in a podcast. A talk show that was also supposed to premiere soon was also shelved.
Alarm was raised over the weekend when Cannon changed his location to “heaven” in a post that suggested he was going to take his own life.
“I hurt an entire community and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing,” he wrote on Instagram. “Goodnight. Enjoy Earth.”
On Twitter he wrote, “Y’all can have this planet. I’m out!”
In tribute to recently deceased rapper and friend Ryan Bowers, Cannon also said perhaps some of the blame should be laid on him for failing to notice the signs that led to his suicide.
“I can’t help but think if I wasn’t so engulfed in my own bullshit I could’ve been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts… Fuck this place!!” he wrote.
On social media however, Cannon received consolation and support with one fan saying : “Just stay true to yourself and your beliefs; you can’t please everyone so you might as well please yourself.”
Last week, Bad Boy boss P Diddy offered the entertainer a job at Revolt TV as a show of solidarity.
