America’s Got Talent needs to find a new host as soon as possible now that Nick Cannon has resigned.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Nick Cannon details why he’s leaving the show, accusing NBC of trying to silence, censor, and control him.
All this started last week, when Nick was allegedly almost terminated for comments he made in a comedy special. The special aired this past Friday night on Showtime, and in it Nick jokes about NBC executives causing him to lose his black card by requesting that he showed less swagger, and appeared less urban to appeal to AGT’s mainstream audience.
In his public resignation letter, Nick writes:
I love art and entertainment too much to watch it be ruined by controlling corporations and big business. I believe It’s our duty as artists to make a difference and create change even if it’s one act at a time.
