Nick Cannon Sparks Controversy With “Whiteface” Pics/Vids


(AllHipHop News) In the Internet Age, entertainers sometimes feel the need to find some way to break through the 2-hour news cycle to grab attention for their new projects. Actor/rapper/comedian Nick Cannon’s approach has definitely caught people’s eyes, but his choice of using “whiteface” has some upset.

While promoting his forthcoming album White People Party Music, the creator of MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out posted photos on Instagram of him made up as a white man. The first photo included the caption, “It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC#Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!!” Cannon also posted a video introducing his new character as Connor Smallnut.

The pictures and videos had some people online questioning why it was okay for Cannon to portray himself as white, but Caucasians wearing “blackface” is viewed as unacceptable. Critics even suggested that Cannon and the act of pretending to be white is racist.

Cannon later defended himself by posting another picture on Instagram of Robert Downey, Jr’s character from the comedy Tropic Thunder. He included the caption, “Shout out to @RobertDowneyJr This is one of my favorite characters of all time! Hilarious!!! There is a big difference between Humor and Hatred.”

    This is some fake controversy. Dave Chappelle did his White Face impression all the time. Also White people do it too. America’s getting way too sensitive. Comedy is comedy. How many black comedians do the “White people act like this and Black people act like this routine”? Whatever…. Next….

    • Inmadopuroz

      I need c0ck in my life

    • brotha_man

  • Jason Mazur

    Who gives a f**K. People be paying attention to all the wrong s**t. I wouldn’t give a damn if he wore a dress and danced on top of the empire state building with a farret in his purse while singing show tunes over a Premo beat.

  • D_Ably

    It’s not like he’s gonna go platinum with it. Who cares? Tropical Thunder is one of the whackest movies of all time.

  • Truth Powell

    Yeah it is showing a lot of people’s true colors. Like how Nick Cannon is a short sighted idiot.
    Robert Downey Jr was playing a character that was PLAYING A CHARACTER within a film. Unless Nick Cannon is doing a concept album of a black entertainer who was commissioned by his label to perform as a white man his analogy makes no sense.

    • Troll_E_G

      U don’t read well or u just lack understanding…its a character for his album

  • GQ

    The only problem I have with the whole thing is… Nick cannon’s “comedy” is corny

    • Inmadopuroz

      But he makes me horny

  • ladynamor

    Cant be mad. I mean Kirk Lazarus from Tropic Thunder is Iggy Azalea all the way, and people take her pale ass serious. She even went on record defending her faking! (broken english and all)LMAO We should be offended by her and MGK and all those other ignorant MF’s like them as well. For the record, race watchers, I did not like when Nicki Minaj faked her British accent either. ALL of it is corny, and we are corny for accepting it. Hip Hop is for suckas. RnB has been totally whitewashed and we cant even see it. Its bloody disgusting matey! Hip Hop will make a real comeback when we start fighting against people stealing the culture. Fight the Power M.F!

    • Inmadopuroz

      Gimmie c0ck

  • Sean Power

    The white face vs black face

  • only racist white people thats looking for something to b!tch about have a problem with this..it ain’t our fault y’all had a racist history with them dumb minstrel shows…

  • Nick cannon compares to Downey Jr. 0%. However, anyone who can compare “whiteface” to “blackface” is ignorant to the core. There is no period in american history where black people had to play white people in movies or tv because it was unacceptable to have white people perform. Until people realize that black people and white people have never been equal, pretending that they have been will always cause strife
