Nick Cannon and ViacomCBS are on friendly terms again after he met with Jewish community leaders following his anti-Semitic outburst last month.

Variety explains ViacomCBS has "opened the door" for the disgraced comedian to work with the company again at some point in the future.

A ViacomCBS source told Variety that Chris McCarthy, president of entertainment and youth brands at ViacomCBS, praised Cannon for going on an apology tour to Jewish community centers.

The source said McCarthy and Cannon have been in touch in recent weeks, after he was abruptly terminated in July for calling white people and Jews "the true savages" who act "evil" and "rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive" on his podcast show, "Cannon's Class,".

Speaking at a town hall with employees on Monday, McCarthy described himself as "hopeful" that ViacomCBS would "find a way" to work with Cannon again.

"I struggle with the fact that Nick, a longtime partner and friend of ours, is on this journey and we're not part of that journey," McCarthy said. He added, "I am hopeful we find a way to bring these two things together and hopefully we will have the opportunity to do that with Nick again."

Earlier this month, Cannon appeared on the American Jewish Committee's online program, AJC Advocacy Anywhere, where he apologized again for insulting the Jewish people.

He said he'd recently discovered his ancestors are Black and Jewish. "I come from a Jewish family," Cannon said, after he discovered his great-grandfather was a "Spanish rabbi."

"My mother has been calling me every single day since this happened with so much family history," Cannon shared. He said his mother told him his "great-grandfather was a Spanish rabbi. He's a Sephardic Jewish man."

"So, as much heat as I've been catching from the public and the outside, this hit home for my family in a real way because I come from a Black and Jewish family on my mother's side," he said.

Cannon, 39, has been very vocal in Black Lives Matter's efforts to defund the police following the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in May.

Cannon was upset when his friends and Black Lives Matter didn't rush to his defense following the public backlash. He took to social media and hinted he might harm himself.

"My mother has been calling me every single day since this happened with so much family history," Cannon shared. He said his mother told him his "great-grandfather was a Spanish rabbi. He's a Sephardic Jewish man."

"So, as much heat as I've been catching from the public and the outside, this hit home for my family in a real way because I come from a Black and Jewish family on my mother's side," he said.

Cannon is still upset that his friends and fans turned on him after he apologized to the Jewish people.

In social media posts, he wrote that things "couldn't get any worse" for him, and he hinted at taking his own life after none of his A-list friends rushed to defend him.

"A lot of people may have been upset that I apologized, but I feel like that's what someone of true character is actually supposed to do when they hurt someone."

'Now, let's get through this process of truth and reconciliation," he said.

The 39-year-old comedian was fired in July after he labeled white people "savages" who act "evil" and "rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive" on his podcast show, "Cannon's Class,".

The public fallout was swift and harsh as ViacomCBS severed longstanding ties with the comedian, taking millions of dollars in revenue with them.

Cannon's bank account took another hit as his daytime talk show, The Nick Cannon Show, was delayed until 2021 and his radio show on Power 106, Nick Cannon Mornings, is temporarily suspended.

Since making the controversial comments, Nick has met with rabbis and learned about Judaism during a visit to the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.

Nick Cannon has endorsed rapper-turned-U.S. Presidential candidate Kanye West in the 2020 elections.

Mariah Carey's ex-husband told TMZ the U.S. needs another black man in office, referring to former President Barack Obama, who is biracial.

Cannon said of his longtime friend's campaign: "I love it! We need another black man in power."

The news comes amid reports that Kanye is under investigation for election fraud.

CNN correspondent April Ryan tweeted, "Two states declaring #KanyeWest ineligible to be on #POTUS ballot due to faulty signatures could open him up to an #ElectionFraud investigation."

"Kanye West will also not be permitted on the New Jersey ballot due to faulty signatures. His 'campaign' withdraws petition."

Ryan continued saying, "I would imagine other states where reported GOP operatives assisted him to get on the ballot will soon be reviewing."

Last week, Kanye jokingly said he was campaigning to draw votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Nick sparked concern last month when he made headlines for anti-Semitic comments he shared on his podcast show, "Cannon's Class," in which he labeled white people "savages" who act "evil" and "rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive".

In subsequent social media posts, he wrote that things "couldn't get any worse" for him, and he hinted at taking his own life after none of his A-list friends rushed to defend him.

Nick Cannon is still feeling the heat after making anti-Semitic comments during an exchange with former Public Enemy member Professor Griff on the June 30 episode of his "Cannon Class" podcast.

The talk show, which was scheduled to premiere later this year, is pushed to 2021, the show's producer, Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury, confirmed in a statement obtained by Variety.com.

The production company said it is "standing by" Cannon, as did Fox TV, which said it is keeping him on as the MC of The Masked Singer -- for now.

Debmar-Mercury stated Cannon could redeem himself by meeting "with leaders of the Jewish community".

On Monday, Cannon visited the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, where he learned about the Holocaust and the millions of Jews who lost their lives in the Nazi concentration camps.

The father-of-three pledged his first paycheck from The Masked Singer to the Jewish center to continue its work.

Cannon, 39, once known as one of the most powerful media personalities in America, was so despondent over his derailed career that he wrote a series of cryptic social media posts that sounded very much like suicide notes.

In the caption of a photo of himself and rapper Ryan Bowers, who took his own life, Cannon wrote:

"After waking up and barely rising from my own dark contemplation of continuing my physical existence on this planet, this powerful warrior actually had the balls to do it."

In an early morning tweet on July 17, he wrote: "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. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth."

He followed up by tweeting, "Y'all can have this planet. I'm out!"

Cannon has been "counseled" by Jewish manager Guy Oseary, whose celebrity clients include Madonna and U2, according to Variety.

Terry Crews is in the blog headlines again after he was practically run off Twitter for his statement about "Black supremacy".

Crews was on the hot seat in June for tweeting: "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.

"Like it or not, we are all in this together."

This time Crews is being dragged for a comment he made comparing the Ku Klux Klan to Black people.

In response to racist remarks made by television host Nick Cannon about white people and Jews, Crews tweeted, "toldja so!"

Crews captioned a clip of Cannon's controversial statements, saying white people were “savages" who lacked malanin because they originated from a "hostile" climate where they were exposed to less sunshine than Africans.

Crews said Cannon's comments were rooted in the "Black supremacy" ideology that he warned about.

Crews, pictured with his wife, Rebecca King, implied that Black Supremacy is more detrimental to society than white supremacy.

"We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don't ... it's going to slip into something we are really not prepared for," Crews warned.

When a follower tweeted, "You going so hard against nick cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back," Crews responded:

"When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK... It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and 'the insult of acting white.' My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don't know how powerful you are."

Nick Cannon was abruptly fired from ViacomCBS after meeting with top executives to discuss his anti-Semitic rant last week.

ViacomCBS is the parent company of Nickelodeon and the producers of his show Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out.

The "Masked Singer" host found himself in hot water after he stated white people are the "true savages" due to their lack of melanin in their skin.

The job termination ends his hosting duties on Wild 'N Out and The Masked Singer and takes a huge chunk out of his bank account.

The outspoken comedian made the remarks during a recent episode of his YouTube show Cannon's Class, when he stated that white people are "a little less" than darker-skinned people.

He claimed white people were savages because they originated from hostile territories, far from the equator where they received less sun exposure.

"The people that don't have (melanin) are a little less," Cannon said, claiming, "When they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus... The sun then started to deteriorate them, so then they're acting out of fear, they're acting out of low self-esteem, they're acting out of a deficiency."

He added: "So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive. So then, these people that didn't have what we have - and when I say we, I speak of the melanated people - they had to be savages... They're acting as animals so they're the ones that are actually closer to animals. They're the ones that are actually the true savages."

Following the public backlash, ViacomCBS execs met with Cannon in private to discuss his future with the corporation.

Disappointed by his lack of remorse or an apology, ViacomCBS announced it had parted ways with Cannon on Tuesday, July 14.

"ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism," the company said in a statement. "We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon's Class' on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

"While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him."

Mariah Carey's ex-husband responded to the controversy in a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

The father-of-three took "full responsibility" for the controversial remarks he made on his YouTube show.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions. I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding," he wrote. "The Black and Jewish communities have both faced enormous hatred, oppression persecution and prejudice for thousands of years and in many ways have and will continue to work together to overcome these obstacles."

Judy Eddy/WENN.com

"In today's conversation about anti-racism and social justice, I think we all - including myself - must continue educating one another and embrace uncomfortable conversations - it’s the only way we ALL get better."

He concluded: "Until then, I hold myself accountable for this moment and take full responsibility because My intentions are only to show that as a beautiful human species we have way more commonalities than differences, So let’s embrace those as well as each other. We All Family!"

Evelyn Lozada called into Nick Cannon's morning show to share her perspective on monogamous relationships.

Evelyn, 44, said she prefers to be in a longterm relationship with one man.

Nick explained what most women already know about men but choose to ignore.

"Relationships, in general, I think you definitely have to get to know somebody for at least this seven months," Lozada said. "I feel like the first three months are all full of you [getting] to know somebody."

"I feel like happy here is when you really get to know somebody that's when they, you know, put their guards on and are really open and comfortable having conversations."

Nick, who shares 9-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with singer Mariah Carey, burst Evelyn's bubble by explaining that monogamy is unnatural for men.

"Men don't subscribe to monogamy because they feel like it's not natural in their DNA," he said. "It's that hunting mentality, but it's also like 'yo if we suppose to be fruitful and multiply... there's not many creatures on earth that are monogamous."

Evelyn has dated numerous professional athletes without much success. Her failed relationships include ex-husband Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson (pictured) and former baseball star Carl Crawford, with whom she shares a son.

Tip "T.I." Harris is no fan of conservative commentator Candace Owens. He says Owens is a lost cause, due to her endless criticism of George Floyd, the Black man who died when a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes.

During an appearance on Nick Cannon's Power 106 radio show, T.I. called on Black Twitter to cancel Owens, according to EURweb.com.

"We can have an intelligent discussion. You can either change my mind. I can change your mind. But we still moved forward," he continued. "I don't think dropping each other off is the answer all the time."

But when it comes to Owens, T.I. said she's a lost cause.

"Candace Owens. She got to go. She can't come," he said, before suggesting she's a "paid plant" whose goal is to "come out here and speak against everything the majority of us are standing for."

"So white people are always right? You telling me law enforcement is always right? You telling me the United States of America has always been right when it comes to dealing with us? And that's her story. And you can't trust that story because we have facts that tell us otherwise ... She seems to have forgotten that she's black. She has turned in her black card and crossed over."

T.I. and Owens butted heads during the 2019 REVOLT TV summit in Atlanta, where the rapper called Owens "dangerous" and claimed she was "being used for propaganda."

"Wild 'N Out" star B. Simone was dragged by her baby hairs on social media for saying she is not interested in dating a man who works an honest 9-5 job.

It's hard for women to find hard working men who provide for their family. Simone said she wants that rare, hard to find single man who owns his own business or is at least the CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

An audio of an interview between Simon and Nick Cannon recently surfaced online. The audio enraged social media users -- particularly men who work hard for a living.

In the video, shared by Power 106 FM, Simone said her ideal man "can't have a 9-5... he has to be an entrepreneur," she told Cannon, before adding she wants someone who is "CEO status."

"You don't want him to have a honest job? He can't clock in and clock out?" asked Cannon.

"You're not going to understand my lifestyle. You're not going to understand why I have to be up at 3 a.m," said Simone.

Cannon didn't ask Simon what, if anything, she had to offer a man of such lofty status.

Nick Cannon explained why he had to go to Minneapolis to join protesters after George Floyd died at the hands of a former Minneapolis police officer.

The 39-year-old actor and comedian joined peaceful protesters to celebrate the memory of Floyd and to demand justice outside the Cup Foods store on Chicago Avenue in South Minneapolis where Floyd died on May 25.

In an interview with Variety.com, Cannon called on white people to support the protesters and "dismantle all of those [racist] systems that this country was built on."

"That's why so many people get it wrong when it comes to racism. People think 'Oh no, I'm not a racist.' But if you support this system, you support racism. If you don't step up and say this system has been wrong for years — from the war on drugs to criminalization of black men in general to the school-to-prison pipeline to the prison industrial complex.

"The same thing that made me go to Minneapolis is the same thing that made me go to Ferguson and to Charlottesville and to jails in Cook County and Washington, D.C. and to study criminology at Howard University. I did not want to be another celebrity tweeting or reposting a picture. I want to be authentic and educated and informed. I had to go to it."

Cannon is the ex-husband of pop singer Mariah Carey, 51. They share 9-year-old fraternal twins: daughter Monroe and son Moroccan Scott.
