ViacomCBS is cutting ties with Nick Cannon following anti-Semitic remarks made on the actor's podcast. The comments were said on "Cannon's Class" back on June 30th where the former television host presented anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. A representative for ViacomCBS told Variety that Cannon is no longer part of the company and they deplore prejudice of all types and "categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism."

On Monday, Cannon expressed regret on Twitter saying he does not accept "hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric," adding he takes "full responsibility."
