Nick Cannon has gone a pissed a bunch of people off with his recent publicity stunt to promote his upcoming album, White People Party Music. He dressed up in whiteface and posted a photo of himself on Instagram with the following caption:
It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted!!”
Cannon also posted several videos to Instagram dressed as his white alter ego, Connor Smallnut. Not for nothing, but we can imagine why the average white male would be insulting at such a racial charged act. Connor Smallnut? Seriously? Whoa! In the videos it appears he is attempting to imitate the way he believes white men act. It’s unclear whether or not his album is actually “party music for white people.”
The former Nickelodeon star paints himself as a bit of a comedian, and this is not the first time he has taken shots at white folks either. Back in 2009, Cannon entered a feud with white rapper Eminem (Marshall Mathers) Carey in a few of his songs for her choice of men. Mathers never points out her race, but Cannon does.
“I thought we got passed the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it,” he wrote of Eminem. “What’s next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama?”
